Abused Osteoporosis Disabled Divorcee Seeks Housing Government Grant
(Dearborn, Michigan, USA)
I am a 60-year-old osteoporosis disabled woman. My husband filed for divorce after 34 years of marriage.
I was employed by one of the department stores. Last February, like many people, I lost my job.
Now my problem is that I have no job and it is hard for me to find one because of my physical condition.
I have osteoporosis and it is severe.
I have no health insurance and no place to live. I left the house because I have no money to pay for the mortgage, so he is staying in till it is sold. When? I don't know.
The unemployment payment that I was living on is almost over. I used my 401K money to pay my lawyer for the divorce case.
This is my story. I don't know. Is it fair after all these years find myself in the street? I was a housewife most of our marriage. I started to work just the last nine years.
I raised three kids. I never asked for anything more than to live in dignity. He abused me physically, mentally, and emotionally.
I preferred to stay because of my kids and hoping that one day he would stop all of this.
But when he found that I have no more income, and that I was having health problems he kicked me out.
I know he has a lot of money but I have no proof where he put it. That's why I ended with nothing at this age. I have to ask for help from my kids or strangers.
This is my story. I don't know if there is help for me somewhere. If not, God is there. He won't forget anybody.
I wish that some day women won't suffer anymore from abusive husbands.
