First I just want to say I am not trying to talk bad about my mom. She is a great mom and did the best she could raising us 3 kids on her own. But i need to get some stuff off my chest before I take it out on her.
Growing up, it was just my mom taking care of me and my two brothers. She didnt graduate highschool (barely middleschool) and suffers from ADHD. I respect her, she is so much stronger than I could ever be. But, being so broke, she ran alot of her bills up and could never afford to pay them. So when she ruined her name, she took over mine.
I now have 3 kids. We are moving into a house next weekend. (we've been living in a apartment for years, where other than rent we only had to pay electric, which i had to put in my brothers name) But trying to set up the bills would be costing me a fortune!! i'm forced to pay off all the debt she ran up threw the years. But I can't afford to do that. So agian, the bills have to be put in other peoples names. Luckily my brother allows me to do this. I am rarely late on my bills and if i am its just because i forgot, not because i didnt have the money. But calling all the places and relizing how screwed my own name is, makes me so angry. It dosnt only affect me but also my kids. My credits so messed up, I'll never be able to buy my own home. i can't even get on a cell phone plan without paying a arm and a leg.
When I brought it up to her earlier, she didnt even understand what the big deal was. "i dont know what the big deal is, using your brothers name you don't even have to pay a deposit".... I bite my tounge, but the reason my brothers credit is so good is because of me!! He just moved out on his own last year. i've been using it for a few, So im glad i can help my brother out, but hes young, what the hell am i going to do if he messes it up?!? I want to be able to say proudly I have good credit, not explain to people I have shitty credit but my brother has good because of me!!! I want to be ME. I've worked to hard to have nothing to show for it!
Okay rant over.
Okay, NO People. I will not REPORT my own mother. Yes this sucks, but my mom did/does the best she can. She didn't do any of this to hurt me. She did it to provide for me and my brothers. She still has one at home (16) I am not angry at her for this. I am more angry at just the fact that she won't admit its not fair to me.
