... Any kind of dream or hope of a good future. The bills just keep piling up, and I'll never get out from under them. They gain ridiculous interest (10%/month, tacked onto the principal), to the extent that I can't ever pay. This is all required by the state because my ex KIDNAPPED my children. I can't make enough in a month to pay this "debt", and I can't give ANY of my money to ANYTHING other than rent and keeping food in the house for the kids when they're with me.
So, no, I don't get to have any dreams anymore. You've finally bled it out of me. I have no hope, and I never will again. I can't make enough in a month to pay this "debt", and I can't give ANY of my money to ANYTHING other than rent and keeping food in the house for the kids. You're trying to put me out on the street so you can take them permanently.
I shouldn't even have to pay child support in the first place; I WANTED them, and you stole them from me. When the kids are old enough, and I build up the courage, I will finally kill myself. That's probably what you wanted in the first place.
