I need to confess that the boy lent me £30 so I could go out with him and his friends on Friday, and some of my spends ‘may’ have come from the wallet that keeps the separate food budget money in.
I am really struggling and to be honest it is kind of hard to be excited about how much debt I have paid off when I am still horribly in debt and suffering financially.
I am now in a situation where soon every single penny of my wage will be allocated to bills and I will have NOTHING in terms of a disposable income.
Goodbye social life.
But I guess my mental health and debt are more important than that.
