The Dark side of me is breaking free.  What, you say?  Me being anything but nice and polite and patient?  You are darn right!!!!!!!!!!!  There are times when nice gets you only so far.  There are people and businesses who only seem to respond to anger.  I know, I preach all the good qualities I’m not feeling right now.  You know; “let your light shine”, “treat others as you’d want to be treated”, “patience is a virtue”,  “turn the other cheek”.  And then there is Einstein.  He once said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different outcome.”  Well, I guess I have just become  sane.

What, you say, has driven me to the dark side?  Well, it has been the worst year of my life starting with my husband’s passing, the passing of an uncle, the passing of a dear sister-in-law, and now the passing of my mother…all in one year.  If that were not bad enough, it has been having to deal with an automotive shop that has jerked me around, kept driving the cost of the repairs up, didn’t do their job right and ended up destroying my car, and then spending three more months waiting to see if it would heal itself.  Yes, ” HEAL ITSELF…

It is finding out that my husband, bless his heart, had been hiding financial information from me that has left me with problems I never expected to have to confront.  He was not honest, upfront, nor financially smart and now I am left with the problems he created.  Yes, I am angry!

Oh, and to add insult to injury, I am finding out first-hand why people are protesting Wall Street, particularly the banks.  It is time for me to rise like the phoenix and take you along on my journey.  It will be posted under “Finances”, because that is where  my path has taken me.  I know I am not the only women out there who has run up against the “Good Old Boy” system.  I know I am not the only women who has found herself patronized, belittled, dismissed, patted on the head and treated as “the little woman”.  Well, things need to change.  I now for one thing, if my husband had been doing these things he wouldn’t have been treated this way.  He would have been turned down flatly and quickly because he couldn’t manage money.  I on the other hand, have always had better credit than he had.    I see a class action suit on the horizon?

I would like you to share with me your mortgage problems, you credit problems, and the indignities you have suffered at the hands of mortgage lenders, banks, etc.  I am sure we can all use a place to vent and share our hardships, solutions, and outcomes.  Perhaps together we can help each other.

So, I know I have not been very regular in posting on this blog.  I will commit to this because I need it as much as you do.  But I need your help.  I need to know I am not alone.  I need to form a strong union of fed up women who, together may be able to change things.  I know I’m going to try. Tomorrow I will start sharing my story.  If my story sounds familiar, let me know.  I would love to hear from all of you out there who have suffered or are suffering the same problems.

Thanks!  Chris
