This is only temporary. Have you looked for any full time jobs? I think you said that you were working part time with children. That is wonderful. I am sure that it is very gratifying. Hopefully you can get a full time position and get your own place, or even room with somebody. Where things will be more even. You will have more options.
I know that it is so hard when you are sleeping on somebody's couch, but, that is a safe place for you right now. And I am happy to know that you are somewhere safe. That is so important.
Keep your eyes
open for a better job with more hours. Something that will get you ahead. I couldnt see any reasoning for them locking you up over a debt, how would that enable you to pay anything. I know that maybe they think of it as stealing, but if you were in jail, you couldn't earn any money to pay on it. Though I have that same fear, I am going through court over a credit card debt that I owe. I have done everything to try to pay it, but I just don't have the money.
I guess that it is different here than it is there, but they have to have some reasoning with this. Tell them to get you a job and you would happily pay it.
I hope that writing has helped you to feel better, hopefully somebody can come on with some better advice than me. I am going through the same thing, just got a letter from the mediation services about
my case. They want thirty dollars just to do this. I don't even have that.
Best wishes to you Dark. Remember that we are here for you.
Luv and hugs, Karen...
