Well, it’s come to this. As the title says, I’m going through a rough divorce. Now, I know what you might be thinking, every divorce is rough, and I agree.
My situation is this. For a year, I drove my wife to and back from work, which was one hour away, making it 4 hours a day, 20-24 hours a week of just driving because she got her third DUI.
I stopped working because she made more money than me and we couldn’t afford her to lose her job.
Turns out, she was a lot crazier than she let on. One night, about 3 months ago, she got super aggressive, and I tried leaving. In order to stop me from leaving, she called the cops on me and said I hit her, even though it was her that hit me. But, because she had bruises on her arms from work, the cops just assumed it was me, and arrested me, without even letting me finish my story.
I had to up and move 1300 miles away from my home state and move back in with my parents at 30 years old, something I thought I’d never had to do.
Now, good news is, she rescinded her accusation, but the damage was already done, and the State still charged me. The charges are being dismissed, thankfully, but they’ve been making me go through hoops. I have spent close to $10,000 on lawyers, bail, and travel back and forth between states.
Unfortunately, that’s pretty much all the money I personally had, and no one is wanting to hire me because of this. I finalize the paperwork mid February, but until then, I’ve been only earning about $50 a week doing odd jobs for my parents because not even Uber or Shipt will allow me to work for them until it’s formally dismissed.
I am going on my last trip to finalize my divorce this upcoming week.
I am not asking for anything in particular… just something to be able to live a bit once I finalize the dismissal of charges and start the paperwork for my divorce.
Included is a direct picture from my bank account. I’m on my last $80 and it just feels so horrible to not even be able to go get a bag of chips for myself without feeling bad about it or asking my parents for money.
I’ve never begged online before… but I’m at my lowest of my low right now.
Even just having $100 more in my bank account well allow me to actually live a little bit while I’m finishing up my business in Texas.
Again, I hate that I’m asking for this… but I have nowhere else to ask, and I would just like to feel what’s it’s like to be alive again… even just for a moment.
