My mother recently created a scenario with the "help" of my brother that resulted in me being terminated from work. The place I work is also tied to the place I live. Long story short lost my job, my home & looks like my pets will need to be placed in a shelter. I'm so furious & to make it worse I may not be able to continue in my profession which I worked 7 years to get my degrees, certifications & licensure. I have student loans to pay back in a professon I may never be able to work in again. I'm 52 years old & can't believe this is happening. My mom sent me an elaborate email apology with a ton of qualifiers to justify her actions. At this point I am so ready to cut her out of my life for good but really struggling to forgive her. Any advice or words of wisdom?

Beach Chic, no one can possibly know what you're talking about. Unless you are more specific about how your mother and brother were able to orchestrate this complete coup of your life, it's hard to offer advice.

I will say, I'm sorry you're suffering and hope you are able to get your feet under you again.

Ok, I'm out of here. It's really tiresome when people post very vague stories, and ask for advice, when they are completely unwilling to give any details that would make it make sense, and yet they ask for advice.

Best wishes, honestly, OP, I hope the best for you. But enough of this game of posters coming on this forum posting sob stories asking for advice, and then refuse to give any details that would make any advice meaningful.

My guess is, your mother is stricken and broken right now, but she and your brother had no choice but to do what they did, if they wanted to have a clear conscience.

It is difficult to imagine any job where the employee's mother and brother could come in and get the employee fired and kicked out of their housing unit and maybe even lead to losing their license or certification.

That must have been some wild story that they concocted. Why in the world didn't your boss just kick them out of the store/business/factory/whatever?

And, why would they do that in the first place.

Perhaps you can sue Mom and Brother for defamation of character for telling people lies with such serious ramifications.

But, if you want some actual, concrete advice you will have to give some details or say that it would be similar to "XYZ".

My advice?

Spending time on C-D isn't going to do anything to improve your situation.

Beyond that, we don't have enough information to be of any help.

Help me, with something I can't tell you about.


Stop being paranoid. Posting on CD on a new account isn't going to expose your true identity.
