My name is Barbara. I am 43 years old and I have recently been through a lot of life changes. I have a husband whom I had been with for 23 years. We have 2 children a son 26 and a daughter 20. I had unfortunately went to jail for a failure to appear in court. I was in there for 3 weeks and when I got out my husband who was 43 at the time had a 24 year old girlfriend. Since then he and I have been back and forth trying to work things out, which all of this started in 2017. We have not lived together since 2018 and I thought maybe things were going to be alright for me. My mother whom was 61 asked me last year to move in with her and share the rent and other expenses. I had gotten myself a pretty good job and things went alright for almost a year. Until I was let go at my job because of lack of work and about 2 weeks later my mother came to me and said she got another house and she’s moving out a week before the rent is due. She started moving the next day. She failed to tell the landlord she was leaving so I informed him. I asked him to please give me a little time I would do whatever I could to get the rent paid because I had nowhere else to go and am terrified of being on the street at my age. He agreed to give me time. 2 days later he sent me a text message telling me to be out by the first of the next month which was may 1, 2021 and at that time that was 3 days away. I cried and pleaded because he and I had gotten fairly close in the year I was there but he had recently gotten a new girlfriend and had allowed friends of his to start staying with him, so he wanted me out to allow his friends to live there and get out of his house. I just couldn’t believe he claimed to be my friend and to care but didn’t have a problem putting me on the street. Especially since I had no idea my mother would do this to me knowing I had no income and nowhere else to go. I told the landlord that he would have to go to the courthouse and file the papers to legally evict me. He unfortunately thought it was a better idea to turn off my utilities and have his new girlfriends brother start harassing me. Now the brother is a 60 something year old man whom drinks heavily and decided that he would start sitting on my front porch drunk and knock on my door and tell me to get out, calling me a c**t, telling me he would beat my a**. So I called the police and they came out but because I had no recording of him threatening me or no witness to it and it was the landlords property and he’s allowing him to be there. There is nothing they can do. So the next time he did this I did get a short recording of him. So now Im in a house with no utilities and a grown drunk man threatening me. By the way I am 5 foot 7 and 118 pounds. I am at this point ready to give up on everything. It seems I lost everything and and all with no warning and hadn’t done anything to justify it. At this time I still do communicate with my husband which we are still married but he had become abusive after the girlfriend thing. Like I said we were together 23 years and there was no abuse but when we tried working things out we were arguing one day and he hit me. Just like that, and I guess it just got easier and progressed to he choked me till I passed out which is also when I left the last time. So my landlord finally filed an eviction and I have since gotten a close friend to rent me a storage facility. Now I am staying from one friends couch to another with a little dog I have. I have nobody that I can depend on to really help me. I have been filling out applications but I have no vehicle. I have a bicycle I ride but it’s hard sometimes. Im just looking for enough to get a place to stay for a month or 2 for me and my little dog, pay my storage for a month or 2, buy some new clothes for interviews because when I left my husband I left with nothing but one change of clothes and my dog and was terrified to go back. I have had trust issues my whole life because of my mother who when I was young slept with my male friends and tried to sleep with my husband. We lost a baby in 99 whom was born to early and passed away at 2 days old. He was 4 months early and weighed 1lb. 4oz. So because of my trust issues I have really no friends. I have run out of places I can stay. I desperately need help. Im not afraid to work I have most of my life my husband was lazy and I supported my family most of the time. I also have 2 grandchildren now a little girl who is 2 which I had kept one night a week since she was 2 months old and a new grandson that is almost 2 months old. I have not been able to keep either one because I have no place to keep them. I miss them so much. My granddaughter is the only thing that has kept me even trying the last 2 years. I just have been knocked way down and need a hand to get back up this time. Thank you for reading my story. God Bless https://paypal.me/BToone321?locale.x=en_U.
