That sounds stressful, I'm sorry to hear

How often does this sort of thing come up in freelancing? On average, do freelancers make as much as full time employees over say a 5 year span?

(For absolute emergency cash, you could hit up a temp agency and probably be working tomorrow while you wait for new contracts. The pay would be terrible but its also almost zero commitment - you could leave the day you sign your next contract)

edit: based on your submission history since at least 2014, it sounds like things have been bumpy for a while now.

I'm not sure what the answer to your short term problem is, but you may need to look at some bigger-picture solutions in the long term. I hope things work out for you!
