I made the decision 6 years ago to move my 3 kids and my husband to his parents house, many states away. Long story short, his mother and sister have always despised me and are very narcissistic people that play nice when it benefits them. Since we were suffering monetarily, I decided kids were more important and getting out of poverty for them is worth my strife. Short term, living in a finished basement, father helps husband get job and we move out quickly.
Fist day there I am rushed to hospital, my hernia strangulation caused gang green, almost died. Should have red flagged back to my home town but I can’t leave the kids!
Year after year my health declines, my personality is beaten down and I am still locked away in a basement, nothing of my own. I shower in a sink. My kids are very taken care of and happy….but they now Haye me for becoming what ever I have. I am under constant video surveillance, I can’t walk out the door with them knowing my every move….have I mentioned I am 46?!?!? I have been here six years and have nothing to my name, I am an artist that can’t work anymore due to my brain just not working. I am scared for myself. The only reason I am here is because I love my children so if I took my life….I just can’t do that to them. So.eone help me….please……
I am really sorry about your declining health and your poor living conditions!

Does it mean you live alone in the basement, in poor conditions, while your children live separately (maybe in the same house, but upstairs?) and have good living conditions? Where is your husband in the whole story?
I would like to understand more, if you’d like to share…
I do hope your health gets better and you can return to art and also free yourself from the current living arrangements…
