Bullying awareness: Your story
My Life Story Part 8
The whole experience turned my life further upside down. It was like my pride was taken from me. I was so confused, didn't know when I was coming or going, wanting to just disappear! But I stuck around for my daughter. I did whatever it took to be able to get back into my daughter's life. I even stayed outside the apartment, out in the poring rain, waiting for her mother to let me in! I was out in that rain all night and slept the whole night on the bench. She had finally let me come back, but get this, only because she needed a babysitter. She lands a job in Kentucky working at one of the Shell Gas stations. She was messing around with the WPAY broadcaster, who hosted the AM station of WPAY! Then if that wasn't enough, she starts sleeping with this other guy that also worked at where she worked. Well She finally kicks me out and this time I didn't come back crawling to her like I had down for the whole 4 years. She started finally only date just that one guy, in which she let me meet, when I went to go see my daughter. He smiles and says nice to meet you, and then promises me that he will never take my place as a father. Now that was a lie in a half. It was around mother's day, I went to go see my daughter and wish her mother a Happy Mother's Day, gave her a card and a little innocent hug. Later that same day, he catches up with me down the street and threatened to kill me if I ever go back around her. He was coming at me while making the threat, so I pretended to call the police on the payphone. I finally told my daughter's mother that I was going to contact the Children Services, because I found out that he did time in prison, but didn't know what for so I was going to inform Children Services and have them do a background check on him. Well she got scared and told him to stop the car, she get's our daughter and exits the car. She walks across the street and we began walking back to the apartments. As we was walking, he gets angry and drives into the parking lot where we was walking and tried to hit me with the car.
I jumped out of the way and the car missed me by an inch, I contacted the police. An officer showed up at the scene, and asks what is going on. I explained to him all that had happened, my daughter's mother started to verify that all that I was telling him was true, then out of the blue, my daughter's grandmother pulls up and starts saying that all I do is stalk my daughter's mother day in and day out, just like that, my daughter's mother, recanted her testimony. Oh I was so outraged way beyond belief.In 2001, I was staying at my mom's apartment which she had lived up the hill from my daughter. My daughter was infested with head lice so bad, they were jumping off her head. Me and my mom, worked all night on her hair getting it out. Told my daughter's mother that she needed to treat it and so on. Not to long after that, I get my daughter and she was once again infested, I got tired of her mother not taking care of it, so I called the Children Services on her. Well the next week, I guess they had showed up, because me and my neighbors were all outside talking, I heard my daughter screaming, then a loud slap. I called the police and made a report. As we were listening to the police scanner, the officer who answered the call, said that he knows who we were and that they are always called by either me and her, so he will get there when he get's there. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, this officer, sworn to serve and protect, being rude about a possible abuse call? Well he finally showed up but cleared the call as everything was OK!A few weeks later, they send a drunk to my mom's apartment, he knocks on the door, I answered it, he demands me to come outside, saying that he had a message, from my daughter's mom's boyfriend. I kept telling him to leave, but he refused.
My mom came to the door and asked me what was going on, she ended up shoving that man off the porch and on his behind. It was a classic Kodak moment. I will not bore you anymore about the conflicts between me and him. I will add that when it comes down to Portsmouth, Ohio, the convicts and ex-cons are friends with the police department, getting away with almost anything that they can, but the citizens never does anything with that they always get arrested. My daughter's mother and the boyfriend along with his friends, managed to set me up, by lying to the police, saying that they was in fear of their unborn child, that in which they didn't even have, because she wasn't really even pregnant. With me not having any witnesses, I ended up with a year probation and a little over $900.00. Through the whole year of being on probation, they tried so hard to get me arrested. Even during when I was fighting for visitation, they manage to make my life a living nightmare! About that time, I had already been on Social Security only to have the woman that I was with, take my money, then cheat on me within the six months that I was with her. I moved out and moved in with my mom and her boyfriend, at that time they was living in Otway, Ohio, about 23 minutes north of Portsmouth, Ohio.One day I went to see an old friend that was visiting at my mom's old apartments, when out of no where this guy jumps out of his apartment and nailed me in the jaw, it was almost a superman punch.
