THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME IN WEST DES MOINES, IOWA BY DIANE K. OLSON

I am very sick today -- I can't find a hospital near where I live that will help me and have only been hurt by the medications that they have given me in the past year. I don't even believe in pharmaceuticals because I have eaten healthy, vegetarian and organic for a very long time and take herbs and vitamins and nutrients all the time -- since childhood. What I am going through is very unfair and my church has not been there at all for me recently. I finally got through to my brother this evening but he is four hours away. I cannot get through to my mom at all right now but know that she would be very concerned about me. I miss her so very much and have been trying to reach her all day today and yesterday. The place where I have been living -- the outside, not the inside, has grown increasingly unfriendly to me over the past year and is not a healthy place to be living at all. The inside is beautiful but the outside is not at all. The person who I thought was my step-father but has not been treating me well and has been verbally abusive to me came and took my car away from me and I know that my real mom who raised me would never be married to this person and that both my parents (who raised me in Red Oak) would be extremely upset about what is happening to me right now -- I have taught at three major universities in composition studies and cultural studies the USA and came back to Iowa to help my family with a case of elder abuse involving my grandma. I have recently contacted both the Iowa Department of Civil Rights and the New York State Department of Education Office of Civil Rights (where I was PhD candidate at the State University of New York at Albany for five years) in the past month and filed complaints with both of them about my living situation and about how the hospitals have treated me and about not being supported by SUNY Albany faculty who I worked on my dissertation with in getting back to my university teaching career, which is blatant sexism and is being handled currently by the New York State Education Department, Office of Civil Rights. I am currently in great need of a dependable car and have repeatedly asked my church -- Lutheran Church of Hope, which is an extremely financially well-off church -- and they have repeatedly denied me any financial assistance, which is unholy, unrighteous and very wrong and blatant sexism, too. I tell everything that has happened over the past several years with that church on www.lutheranchurchofhope.info which speaks the absolute truth of my experiences. I have many, many blogs online that testify to my faith in Lord Jesus and His great love and compassion for humanity and also testify to everything that I have gone through in the past several years and I will NOT be silenced on any of these issues until they are properly resolved and until I am reunited with true family -- my mom, my dad, my brother, my nephew and my sister-in-law who love me very much -- and back in my university teaching career (all documented on my professional blog www.compositionstudies.com which I have had since 2004 and continue to write on frequently about teaching writing and social justice issues at the university level) and out ministering to people with the love and compassion of my Best Friend, Jesus, and your Lord and Savior Jesus. I love my family dearly and have always loved them. Thank you for listening and taking everything that I say seriously because it is very serious. Sincerely and with Great Love, Diane K. Olson
