When you are in a ‘three-year-long crisis,’ as a professional will say
Somebody hit my car. I don’t know if it’s driveable. Just to get it out of the tow yard, it cost me $293, leaving me with just $228.
The financial crisis is here and homelessness happened after I was terminated without reason by rural Utah’s Chronicle Progress, though, as an associate told me, I did “professional journalism” and alt-right areas have rejected it.
My car has my box of food, which I only got because of a food bank. A homeless person probably stole an EBT card just granted, according to the Utah Department of Workforce Services.
My car had previously been stolen and the police didn’t tell me they found it, so I had to pay $580 due to accruing fees at another yard. Then I had to pay all-new for another car because the other died just two months and three weeks after I had to pay $332 so it could flat-out run, the first time, after needing to pay entirely up front for it just a week prior.
Outside of Utah, employment went fine! In rather alt-right Wyoming, I may have been threatened, but employment went fine! And nothing like that happened when I was in Montana in 2014!
I have worked in the other areas because I have wanted to be near my sweet Ashtyn and Luke, 5 & 3, who are in Saratoga Springs, Utah. It’s why I left Wyoming!
I have learned that there is immense emotional & psychological toll through losing nine jobs in just three years, a period of time that made a therapist say that I was in a “three-year-long crisis.”
I have continuously been looking for work.
My car was in the yard because I was told that my driver’s license was not valid, even though I confirmed twice that the doctor sent a letter weeks ago, before the deadline, allowing me to continue to drive. I was also cited even though I was in the turn lane. (The officer in general was hostile, being verbally abusive and threatening. I have already filed a complaint.)
This is aside from the emotional & psychological toll of having to represent myself in court over custody of my own children! (Utah Legal Services said that they could not help because the case was “multi-faceted,” though the Utah Courts Self-Help Center said that isn’t usually a reason!)
I will also need resources to contest the citations in court during the accident. That’s aside from the continued custody battle, which the judge has brought back to a starting stage.
And I haven’t even been able to challenge a judge’s decision on my discrimination case with the Daily Herald, or that a judge convicted me of going 70 miles per hour when the cop in his own courtroom said I was going 64! (We got to a hearing stage because I was saying that I was in a 55 MPH zone, though even by the cop’s standard, I was OK, as it was a 65 MPH zone!)
Many of you know I write. I overwhelmingly do that for free.
Of course, my family refused to help — my parents are not even calling me their son anymore.
It’s just a coincidence that it follows Giving Tuesday. The crash happened just Monday.
I need help to survive. Please help me.
