I'm Tammi.  A mama.  A grandma.  A friend.  A daughter.  A sister.  Used to joke about being "Clueless in Coburg".  I'm a widow.  Which makes me a single mother.  I was widowed in 2009.  I placed a personal ad in 2010 and it was answered by a man who told me he was divorced.  My lonely heart soared with the prospect of having found love again.

I don't have a cause to fight for other than saving my face and my family from a person who has been wronged.  I understand what it's like to be wronged, I've been wronged a time or two. I've never had the desire to seek vengeance though.  This lawsuit has and could affect the rest of my life, my childrens' and my grandchildrens'.  I've messed up their lives enough by not making good decisions as all moms struggle with.  

I have been served and am being sued by "Mike's wife".  Yes, the guy from South Dakota I've been dating for several years.  The lawsuit is for Alienation of Affection.  I'm being sued for stealing her husband even though he told me he was divorced and many other lies.  He also told me he loved me and it was forever.  I got the harsh reality as a slap in the face when I drove to Kansas to his apartment to surprise him for his birthday (7th birthday of his I was helping him celebrate) and I got the birthday surprise.  He was celebrating with his 25 year old girlfriend.   So not only do I not have "her husband" or the money to afford to defend myself, I have a lot of hurt and betrayal I'm dealing with also.  And guilt.  Guilt for bringing this man into my life and into my kids' world.  

I have been attempting to "take care of this on my own" with the hopes it would be dropped.  I've researched, called, questioned, Googled.  I've answered the original service and interrogatories.  Now I'm being depositioned.  I have been advised I cannot go to a deposition without an attorney.  To retain a lawyer in South Dakota, it is $5,000.  I am an out of state resident and it is a rare type of lawsuit.  I do not have the means to hire a lawyer.  I have come to realize that not all hearts are like my own.  I have swallowed my pride and come to terms with my stupidity.  I am hoping that this all goes away and that any monies I "raise" can be returned but at this point, this is what I have to do.  I know everyone is tired of crowdfunding and begging, etc.  If someone has better advice than this for me, I'm game.  I am asking for help from my friends, family, even unknown people who realize we all make mistakes...especially when we are lonely or sad. It is also true that desperate people do desperate things.  I am at that point.
