Very quickly, because it’s late for me and I am tired…

I had dinner with a former neighbor who is a psychologist with a special interest and expertise in domestic violence.

It brought back a lot of old hurts that I don’t like to think about.

I think it’s a shame that courts do not yet see verbal and mental abuse on the same level as physical abuse. There were days when I would rather he just killed me with one blow, instead of chipping away at my life one humiliation at a time.

She mentioned that I might want to check for jobs doing casework… I would love to help women in abusive relationships. I wish someone had been there to help me. Even if someone had simply said, “you’re not crazy.” It might have changed everything.
