I spent 9 years as an RN, 8 of them I worked with children in mental health. I loved my job, it was everything I’d wanted to do. Then my life started to fall apart. I had weightloss surgery, I lost 175 pounds… my husband left me. An expected turn to what was a huge victory to me. Then I decided to get a motorcycle.. 5 days in you can see how that went. The bike was shredded. I was lucky but very concussed, broken shoulder, and broken hand. Lost 4 days of memory and have no recall on what the hell happened to my poor motorcycle, just that it was destroyed. A tango with pain meds, which had never appealed to me before, cost me my beloved career. I quit them after a stint in detox and rehab. It was a huge fall from grace as someone who’d never smoked weed to be admitting to my family that I was shooting Dilaudids. They didn’t care that I was trying to turn it around, none of them is in contact at this point.
And my current situation and why I’m hoping for some help. I haven’t been able to find work, let alone work that I could support myself with like my previous work. I’m behind on everything. My car died, like side of the road never to move again dead.. I was so sad because I’d just learned to drive a manual in that car, it was a great old car that had taken every beating like a champ. And a crazy guy comes into the story, he used to be a police officer, good family, seemed like a good guy and we’d known each other about a year.. only for him to use his experience as an officer to blow up a situation and get me arrested and now facing some serious legal bills because the system does NOT work how it should, as I’ve now learned the hard way.. to be clear after he did what he did.. HE bailed me out. Then he wouldn’t leave MY house but due to a no contact I couldn’t call the police because they’d take me away. So I snuck away and hid until he did finally go. He tried to have me rearrested for contacting him but no one was impressed on him bailing me out, hanging around my house, and calling me tons of times with me not reciprocating at all for days prior to him calling.
So my current current situation includes still owing $3000 to my lawyer, a stack of bills to keep my house going, and I mean BASIC – water, electric, internet, garbage, and mortgage. Everything else is back burner and can just proceed with their lawsuits. I’ve applied to many jobs, but nothing has been contacting back for more than preliminary stuff. And without a car I have no way to get to much outside of a few miles so that is a huge limitation.
So to conclude all of this.. if you have anything and can help me.. I just want to get back into nursing, but I have to clear the legal matters, reinstate my license, and find transportation to make that magic happen. Please, I appreciate anything from the bottom to the top of my heart. <3
