    We have just started on the journey of trying to sort out my husband's debt problem. I'm actually quite relieved that he won't be able to get credit any more now he is being sorted on a debt management plan.

    He was recently in hospital due to a psychosis and going through the ESA forms is tough trying to explain the mental health issues... it seems geared towards physical health problems. My husband could probably run a marathon... but probably not find his way home afterwards!
