My Mother introduced me to a psychopath and I continued reading your pages and found a portion about them not being responsible, such as doing my taxes in a timely manner. This crazy person I let in my life who refused to leave while we were married? I paid all of his federal and state tax for six years. I finally got rid of him through several letters written to his Mother to help me. I lost my home in my attempts to make him happy. He would be happy when until I lost myself completely I stopped even filing. The worst of this was my Mother, whom I took care of in my home for nine years, passed away.
When she passed, I no longer had my rock. She was gone and something very destructive was happening to me. I know or I think I know the combination of living with crazy and his bizarre behavior and then the biggest loss I have ever known caused me to collapse inside.
I cannot pay the IRS at this time because I am on disability permanently, yet the lien on my credit and my constant procrastination which has been present since her passing and his verbal/physical abuse took place. I am just not the same. Can you guide me help me to understand so I can correct this? I have lost so much respect for myself that I let this maniac in and it destroyed me. What can I do?
