The hearing for Lilly is coming up on the 25th. The court would not combine the two cases, and so I have had to subpoena ALL of these people OVER again (I still hope I have any friends left in this town when this is over–ha! Dragging them into court every other week….) I filed a motion for an attorney to be appointed for Lilly ad litum–this should have been done YEARS ago, but I was unaware that it was even done–we’ll see if the Judge honors that request. I am hoping for one Ms. Karen Cahilley, Esq., because she did so well by my sons. The judge does not seem to be taking ANYTHING I have filed seriously, most probably because I am not an attorney, even though my paperwork looks and is worded the same……. Ah, well, being treated as if I am worthless and invisible is something I am quite used to, thus creating the loud attitude and pushy nature I have acquired. It seems to be permanent these days. I’m really not sure what else to do. I have always been a smallish person with a pretty little girl face, but fuck if I’ll be treated as is I am a second (or third) class citizen because my life didn’t quite pan out how it was supposed to and I ended up in HUD housing and on food stamps at 34 with three small children. And you want to know why?
BECAUSE THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THOSE PROGRAMS WERE SET UP FOR IN THE FIRST PLACE.
And the assholes that scream entitlement and laziness?
Well fuck you–living under the poverty line is the hardest work I’ve ever done.
