Who needs stress? NOBODY. I certainly don't. A few years before my divorce, my now ex-husband was listening to the radio on his commute and called me up. "Did you know that fibromyalgia is a stress-induced illness?" DUH!! Can't recall how many times I had already told him that, but coming from me had no credibility I guess.
I got a phone call from the D.A. office this morning. My first ex, the father of my children, has a court hearing or trial or something on Tuesday. He is in violation of his probation because of non-payment of child support. He owes me over $222,000.00! I could really use that money. The D.A. practically chewed me out because I don't have information on him, no contact. It made me feel like I was the one in the wrong instead of being the one wronged.
My daughters have limited information and have agreed to testify at the hearing. I hate putting them in that place. But without any testimony the D.A. said she would have to throw the case out. I don't understand? He gets away with his laziness because I have no information? He has already been in court, been put on probation for non-compliance. He says he doesn't have a job, shouldn't he be forced to get one? I am not for the government controlling our lives, but he is in the system, on probation. He has broken the law over and over. Shouldn't he loose some rights because of it? Make him get a job. If they have no power over him, what does probation mean???
I take back my original comment that nobody needs stress. Maybe those who, with intention, violates the rights of others and causes them stress should have stress themselves. Maybe it would be a motivator to make different choices, more correct choices.
Looks like I'm going to court on Tuesday. Pray for me please, I don't do stress well.
