New home owner, losing job

Hi.
I've recently bought a property but have been told I'm losing my job - the redundancy package is not great as I've not been in the job for very long. The job seemed solid.
I'm single which is real concern financially. I'm probably taking on freelance work (I'm a graphic designer) but won't be enough to pay mortgage and bills each month. I didn't get round to buying mortgage insurance.
But has anyone else found themselves in this sticky situation? How did you deal with it? Has anyone else gone self-employed and been successful in terms of paying your mortgage, etc?
Thanks
