Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

I cannot afford food, pay my bills, pay my rego in 8 days. Don't have money for petrol or anything for that matter. 

It has soured my anxiety and depression further and I am struggling to keep going.

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

I think is disgusting. If they weren't able to see the problem 4-6 years ago why are they hitting me with the debt when I am at the lowest in my life. 

They have issued me twice before with debts for the same job I was at, at the time. 

But whenever i ring they put me in such a state I end up having anxiety and sometimes to point of being in tears.
