As I mentioned in my blog of An Attitude of Gratitude, I am having some housing problems at the moment. I would go into more details but it seems my neighbour has managed to find my blog although I never told him that I write one and is using stuff I say on here in court proceedings.
This is unbelievably distressing as this blog has been a sanctuary for me. A tool to help me heal and to make sense of my life so far. I know it is in a public forum but I have felt safe writing here for the past 4-5 years. Now it seems not only do I not have the sanctuary of my home anymore but this is no longer a refuge either. Even writing this now, I have no doubt he is reading it and I know it will be presented in court to be used against me.
I really am just barely holding on. I have just finished writing another letter to the Minister for Housing and the Shadow Minister for Housing to try to get some help. I have also written to three major current affairs programs and am in the process of writing to the Human Right’s Commission and the Ombudsman.
Why am I still fighting? Because unlike a lot of people who are being put through this kind of torment, I have a voice and a platform to speak. Even though it will be used against me, I feel I have an obligation to continue on for as long as I can. How many others have just given up as they couldn’t find the words to fight this kind of injustice?
So I’m putting a call out for any legal person who would be able to support me in getting some justice. I wish I could afford a solicitor but I can’t. It seems the only way I am going to be able to get help is to fight the Housing Authority through the courts. Even though I won a second tier appeal against them, they are still making things so difficult that they think I am going to just give up and walk away.
If anyone out there amongst my readers can assist, please send me a note through the contact form on here and I will get straight back to you. I really am hanging very precariously by a thread right now.. I don’t know how much longer I can hold on.
Not feeling very happy… Livvy xxx
