I am so so sorry to hear of your financial predicament, as you have discovered there are some very ruthless people in this world and I am sorry that you have come across some. I can only imagine the stress you must be under but I am pleased that you have a mental health professional that you can turn to for help at this most anxious time in your life.
I was wondering if you made the trip to Australia and if so how did it go? My husband and I will embarking on our trip to the US in early October, we are going to drive Route 66 and finish in Las Vegas, we are both very excited and looking forward to it immensley.
I hope things work out well for you financially, it doesn't seem fair at all that your husband has been left holding the baby so to speak. I am very sorry for that and I hope you don't lose your house, that would be absolutely tragic. Please let us know how you get on and try not to worry.
