DEAR DEIDRE: I WAS sacked from my last job after being caught stealing from the till.
It was a stupid thing to do but I couldn’t see another way to get out of debt.
I took £1,500 in total and was ordered to pay it back at my disciplinary hearing.
But that’s impossible, as I have no spare cash and am struggling to stay afloat. I’m male and 28.
Now my old work has handed over the evidence to the police and has told me I’m likely to be arrested any day.
I’m having regular anxiety attacks and every knock at my front door sends me into a proper panic.

No one knows what is really going on – not my new place of work, my family or my friends.
I don’t know how to get a handle on any of this.
