  •  I was doing better until a relative did the cute (5+ / 0-)

    thing called identity theft.  I all of a sudden found myself with about 15 credit cards to the limit or over and past due.   Bankruptcy isn't something I'd ever thought I'd get involved in.

    T0hen I got hit with the 2008 crash.   Oh, and a toxic mortgage I let the unmentionable talk me into through one of his buddies.  Stupid on my part but at the time he was helpful and polite and worked very hard-----or seemed to....  I probably ought to write a diary about it to finish lancing the boil of hatred and malice.  But I'm not ready to do anything coherent yet.

    Sorry about the dump.   I find I feel better if I just dump on some poor innocent periodically/

    Thanks  :}

      ...as possible. Bad luck a you were caught in a flash flood of financial abuse, but best not to put off coherence.

      I'm far from innocent and inexplicably not poor, but you're welcome.

        everything cleaned up as well as possible.  I simply don't have the strength to go after him.

        And he's the father of my youngest grandchild and pretty safely separated from the whole family.  Putting him back in jail does have some tempting points, though.
