Please help me rebuild my life.

This is extremely embarrassing and it has always pained me to ask for help but I'm left with little to no options left. Many of you know the events that have led to my current financial situation. Since October of 2015 I have accrued more debt than any single parent that works their butt off ever should. Most of which has been for food to feed my son and myself and of course daily normal living. I rarely buy anything for myself including clothes, it's been that way for years, even before my marriage ended. Some of you know what it's like to live less than paycheck to paycheck and some of you don't but the struggle is real. These last 9 months have been the longest and hardest struggle I have ever endured. I miss having a real house with room to play, guests and have family over. My credit score has gone from 750 to under 400 in less than 9 months. I have a great job and work full time. Yes I could get a second job but that would mean I would very rarely get to see and be with the one person that truly gets me through every day. My son. I've worked hard my entire life and always will. I just want to get back to a spot where I can be comfortable and provide a better future and living for myself and to those I love. Thank you all. Anything and everything helps. Even if it's just a message or a phone call to provide advice or encouragement. If anyone has questions please feel free to message me and ask.
