I am the legal custodian to my 2 young children, ages 3 and 10. In Dec. 2008, I lost my full time bank job because my kids kept getting sick alot and I would have to stay home with them. I have been without a job ever since and if it weren't for my parents, I wouldn't be surviving. But, they are not going to help anymore. My kids get sick alot. They are not unhealthy, but it seems that one of them is sick every 2 weeks and when one gets it, the other one gets it. I receive child support thru the state but the ex only sends it every 2 - 3 months. I am the one who wrote about the Psycopath Narcissist ex. He is constantly threatening to take my kids from me..saying him and his girlfriend (soon to be wife) will raise them. He says the court will take them from me because I have no job. Is this true? I have to deal with his threats constantly by text message. He is constantly telling me what a no good person I am and that his girlfriend is sooo much better than I am. He has a child with this girl now. He was having an affair with her and got her pregnant. He totally abondoned the child for the first 6 months of his life. Now, he and my kids are living there. I need help and don't know where to turn. I have no income and am in fear of losing it all. My mortgage payment is so low that I wont find anywhere cheaper, but I can't even make the payment. If I go to work, I will be let go again because of all the sicknesses. I have no backup childcare. My family is not available for this. Is anyone else having these issues and if so, what are you doing to get help?
