I feel like there is no hope for a decent life left. Before anyone passes judgement just remember there is 2 sides to every story and I have been judged by enough people at this point. So my life started out of control many years ago. I was a corporate account. I worked for a company that had 4 entires. Every employee was hired by one of the 4. When HR switched payroll providers somehow a few employees started receiving duplicate paychecks. I was one of them. Being in accounting I was able to file everything away and no one knew anything. It was a non public company so there were no auditors to double check things. I really did not expect for it to go on as long as it did. I was young single and didn't really fully consider the consequences. I eventually got married and was very happy with my life. Then my wife got pregnant. At this point i was still receiving duplicate checks. I realized I had to come clean otherwise things were only going to get worse. We tried to come to a civil settlement but after a gave them pretty much everything I had back they still had me prosecuted. I spent 2 years in a work release center. It was a horrible situation but it allowed me to go home on weekends and see my son. I was fine with the consequences of basically going to prison. What I cannot deal with anymore as I have no strength left is trying to make a life for myself now that I have been free and did my time for over a year. I cannot find work anywhere. At first I told the truth on applications where it asks if you have ev been convicted of a felony. No one would even speak to me. Then I began to lie. I actually got a good temp job doing analyst work for 3 months. The contract ended last Aug. last week that same company called me and said they have an open position and was I interested. Of course I said yes. I only had 2 other job offers in 6 months and both revoked the offer after my background was revealed. So I went in this past Monday on what I thought was my way back to a civilized life and being able to provide for my son and wife. Well I was wrong. On thursday they called me and said I needed to leave and I was terminated due to my background. How am I suppose to survive and have a life if no one will give me a chance? I just don't feel there is any hope anymore. I do not feel like a man. I cannot provide the basics for my son. I just feel everyone would be better off if I was not around. I use to have hope that I would get past this. I tried to finally do the right thing and I have been shit on eve since and that was Dec 2008 when my life spun out of control. I know I am the maid reason for my situation but do I have to be punished forever when I tried to be honest. It's not just me that suffers either. My wife and my sweet innocent son suffers as well. It just hurts so much not being able to give him the things he deserves. I don't want to feel this way anymore. Someone please help.
