Okay, this is the first I have posted in this forum. I am not catholic but was raised catholic. Now, I am Ev. Lutheran. My mother is however Catholic. Long story short, my mother has some very serious mental problems and has caused me great amounts of pain through out my life. She basicly cant stand me and never has.
Several years ago, she went to Rome to see the pope. She returned with many things and she gave my daughters some braclets that were supposedly blessed by the pope. After several innocents happened to me at her hands, and with the advice of my pastor, the police and social workers, I obtained a restraining order on her and my brother who is in prison alot.
She is very mad that I adopted my brothers daughter and will not allow him to see her because he is on drugs. So, since then, about 2 years now, my life is becoming misserable.
My home is in bankruptcy to keep the foreclosure from going forward, I lost my job, my husband lost his job, we both have had to be retrained to do things we never did before, my health has turned bad and its one thing after another that is making my life so hard.
This morning when I was showering, I was thinking of all my problems and looked down on my wrist. I was wearing the braclet she gave my daughter. And all of a sudden I started remembering things my dad and aunts had told me about my mom having Voo Doo dolls and stuff. And I got scarred. I tried to shake it off. so, I went on my computer and found out that my mortgage payment had just bounced because of something I was not expecting now I am short 500.00 for the mortgage and if its not paid right away, we go back into forclosure. Then, my hubby called me from the DMV and the trucking license he has been trying to get for a new job is now delayed because his birth certificate from another state is not certified and we have to get one certified, and to top it off. He just got a ticket this morning for our city sticker expiring YESTERDAY!!!
I dont know how much more bad luck I can take. It has been like this for two years and I thought that God would help us because we have four kids , TWO we adopted trying to do the right thing and get them out of foster care.
Now, I am thinking, Maybe she has put a curse on me. The sister at the convent that I go to for my daughters clothes told me that it is possible and I should just keep praying and God will help. But, I am getting desperate. Can my mom have put a curse on me? Should I just keep praying or should I be doing something else as well?
… Thanks for any advise you can give me…
pS. I put this in another forum about 45 min ago and didnt get any responces, so maybe I was in the wrong place. Thought I would try this area. had to know where to go with this question.
