I am not looking to bash my ex or have people feel sorry for me. I am wanting to get even in my financial sphere so I can move forward with my business and grow from there. I gave a little background information for establishing some reasoning for my financial situation. My previous adult aged years and my years as a minor have been outside any normal others can conceive. As I stated before it's a lot and difficult for me to articulate so it is understandable. I am writing this morning to let any of y'all know if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. The email attached to this fundraiser is not active at this time due to non payment. You can reach me at [email protected] or by phone at 8437517760. Thank you for your time.

More Info

I spent 20 years with my now ex husband building his business from less than 5000 dollars to over 500 thousand dollars, raising our 2 children, taking care of his family home, trying any and everything to make our marriage work. All while being belittled, controlled, abused and so on. I tried everything and was at a total loss. I couldn't put my children through it anymore. I finally had a way out. He bought another property with a home in it. The last straw : our daughter (7 at the time) broke her arm. My husband wanted me to work the day after bringing her home from the hospital. I agreed, as it was only going to be an hour or so,and he would have everything prepped and ready when I arrived. The material was not ready and was wrong. To fix this, it would have taken a few hours. I did not want to leave my daughter in the car for that long at 6 pm or any time for that matter. I was upset and voiced that to him. He began to curse me and said to me "why don't you go suck his d*~k [email protected]*#h"...I put the material down and walked out and went home with my daughter. He came home a little while later visibly upset. He began to curse me again calling me names, belittling me in front of the kids. I was so angry, hurt and just done. I yelled at him and called him a b*^~h. He got in my face, bowed up to me putting his finger in my face screaming at me and threatening me. I pushed him away with my 4 fingers on his shoulders and my thumbs slightly pressed on his neck/throat. He then threw me around the house against the furniture pulling my hair dragging me around. I got away threw a few things in a bag told my daughter to grab clothes and tried to get out of the bedroom. He held the door shut, I got it open enough to get out. He shoved me to the floor. I got away and we ran to my car and was able to get away. Then the separation started. 2 years until the divorce was final. I worked for him 25 years. (I was 15 when I started) I moved in with him and began our relationship when I was 20. I spent the next 20 years helping him grow doing whatever it took to make our marriage work. Whatever he wanted to do to me I did. I allowed so much horrible things. And I'll end this here for now. Any help will be received with so much appreciation and respect. I am embarrassed and ashamed of myself for being in this situation and having to ask for help. I have no other options. I'm at the end of my road.

Update #1

I believe my carpal tunnel has gotten worse. I was diagnosed with severe carpal tunnel syndrome warranting emergency surgery in September of last year. I cannot afford to take any time off of work. I am not able to pay most of my bills now causing the majority to be in collections. The carpal tunnel is putting a damper on my work as well. All of my work is physical and involves the use of my hands. I need help to take care of my finances and be able to survive.
