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

My stress levels have been through the roof.
I have lost count of the sleepless nights I have suffered since this whole farce began and whilst I am 100% convinced I have done nothing wrong I cant stop worrying about it.

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

To say I am totally disgusted would be a massive understatement.

I find it very disturbing the Government can treat people with such utter contempt. If any other organisation treated people the way I have been treated they would be prosecuted and out of business quick smart.

Whoever was in charge of this fiasco should face criminal charges.
