When I was divorced after 24 years of marriage after my husband decided he didn't want to be married any longer, I had a nervous breakdown and was put on disability. I raised two wonderful children who are productive educated adults on my own. I was in an auto accident in 2001 and subsequently lost my right leg in 2005 as,a result. Yes, I am poor, but I am proud of what choices I did make.I did not choose to be poor. My ex husband chose to leave. I didn't choose not to go to college. I didn't choise the nervous breakdown. I didn't choose to have a vehicle cross into my lane at 45 miles an hour. T boning and then spin to hit me again head on. I didn't choose to have my leg amputated. I did choose to work to support my family so my husband could better his career, only to leave 1 1/2 years after finding success. I didn't choose fir him to hide his money, so after 24 years of dedication and love he left
