October is domestic violence awareness month. I’ve been blogging about domestic abuse all month long on my personal blog. In the beginning of October I had a dream about my ex coming back after me and telling me I wasn’t safe. The dream prompted me to start the blog. Writing it has been therapeutic. It’s also jarring memories both good and bad. Overall it’s been the best thing I’ve done in a long time. I’m not sure if a lot of people are reading it, but if I can help one woman in an abusive situation it would make me happy. I’ve detailed the good, bad and ugly. I’ll end the month telling how I planned my escape and how I finally broke free of the abuse.
On the home front things are chaos. The baby is teething and suffering from a runny nose. So needless to say she’s cranky. My day job is so stressful I feel like I’m at a breaking point. The day care situation needs to be revisited yet again.
I took October off from writing to regroup and the sad thing is I’ve done just the opposite. On the bright side I’m not working this weekend and I asked my boss if I could leave a few hours early for mental health reasons. She felt that was a great idea. :o)
Hope y’all have a great weekend. I plan to.
