I'm such a sorry excuse for a parent

Its the middle of winter and our power got disconnected today. I've had a student loan garnishment eating my paychecks as well as surgery and other bills. Well I've been making 250-300$ every two weeks and just couldn't afford the bill. I had to pay rent and daycare, etc.
I'm behind on daycare, my title pawn, etc. I'm drowning in debt. Now this.
I seriously hate myself right now.
I'm trying so hard yet I get nowhere. I pay my bills, but they got behind because of things eating my income.
I don't have savings, I've never been able to afford to start one.
I vow with my taxes to pay off everything I can. Not unlike EVERY year. But this time I'm sticking 600$ straight in savings and sending 25$ every paycheck automatically to it.
I don't want to go through this again. This is at least the fourth time in 3 years.

Have you attempted to work with your student loan lenders?

if you make 250-300 every 2 weeks, you are more or less making $125 a week.
