    Instead of thanking this post could you all keep replying to keep bumping it up, especially in the evenings, to show newbies to the Debt Free Wannabe community what a fab bunch you all are and that there's always help when they need it.

    Thank you to everyone here for every bit of help and support you give each other from all of us at MSE Towers.

    We're all really proud of every one of you!

    Could you do with a Money Makeover?

    Have to totally agree and thankyou for posting.

    I was in a complete and utter mess this time last year, adding to the already mountain of debt, dreading Christmas, panicking, crying, fretting, not knowing where to turn you name it.

    I eventually plucked up the courage to ask for help on here. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. I dread to think where I would be now if the members of the DFW thread hadn’t shown me the way.

    Onto today,
    • Faced up to it all - yes
    • Asked for help - yes
    • Given non judgmental advice, support and help all the way - yes
    • still in debt - yes
    • Strong enough to deal with it - yes
    • Have a plan of action - yes
    • Living life again - yes
    • Worried, stressed, panicking - NO WAY NOT ANY MORE

    • looking forward to Christmas - yes

    Please ask for help I promise you will not regret it.

  • Exactly. Politics already suffered from our adversarial system - pushing people to oppose not compromise. That ha? https://t.co/gETVyA6HWA

  • RT @bbclaurak: Thanks Martin - we know we can?t please all the people all the time (stands by for grief) but try hard to show how it actual?

  • Morning. I'm on my way to my last @GMB 7:40 deals of the week of 2017. This week including gift card warning, free? https://t.co/2dcNviXxsN
