Now Playing: Day 635-The Final Road To Survival
With all the non-stop stress I am happy to say sorry folks who like to bring me down but guess what? I'm still ALIVE! WHOAHOA!
I should had been a Navy Seal. Heck! So far it seems I am already in training. Prepare for battle! Been there. Doing that. Hahahaha! So one might wonder how my spirits are still up even with all the crap going on around me. God loves a fighter and he sure does love me! We all have a purpose here on earth and let's just say my job is far from done. Amen.
After going to the county courthouse and receiving all the necessary paperwork to file a civil protection order against my ex's sibling I decided to take a day to reflect on everything. To go over the entire situation. It also gave me time to speak to the judge's magistrate and assistant. Today I spoke to the local and county Sheriff's department regarding the attempted assault. 'Attempted' because I wasn't under the influence of anything unlike his sibling who was under the influence of quite a few things. I won't be allowing anyone to ever again try to force their way into my property after being asked numerous times to leave. What I found out was I have been able to protect myself, my life and my fur kids over several times now.
It's called the act of "Self Defense."
You don't have to be assaulted in order to protect yourself. Verbal assault which puts a person in fear of their life also allows you to protect yourself. No one gets arrested for protecting themselves and with a prior incident report a page long let's just say that soon to be EX Sister In Law is extremely lucky! After the county looked into this individuals background a bit further it certainly explained how my ex ended up with all their drug and alcohol addiction problems. They learned the behavior as well the violent temper first hand from their own family. I honestly am still a bit shocked and taken back finding out all the repeated history of arrests. One should learn from their past mistakes and grow up to be a better person not create a longer rap sheet like his sibling. To make a long story short I tend to believe his siblings actions will not be the first nor the last. I might have my local and county departments behind me but for now at least I am 100% educated on my rights to defend and protect my life as well my beloved fur kids.
SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE COLORFUL FRIENDS!
I like to call my little friends M O P. I won't tell you what the initials stand for, I rather you guess but certain you can figure it out. When you are sick and in no position to be lunged at nor threatened with violence you have to get some type of support and back up. Have a game plan. Sure wish I had both prior to last weekends ridiculous act of someone being way out of control and NUTS! Being told by the law and the court system that regardless the scenario and you are sick as well injured you need to do what you need to do to protect yourself. Period. I couldn't agree with them more and honestly I have had just about enough, no wait! I HAVE HAD ENOUGH of walking on egg shells. No one should have to live a life of fear due to some nut job extended family member nor an addict who mind you will never be clean or sober. They just lead everyone to believe they are for the sake of once again manipulating. Those who fall for the stories are just as if not more foolish looking than the addict.
Now I have my own personal stash of M O P S because one can never be too prepared to protect themselves. Amen. Miss pink M O P stays by my side indoors while her cousin blue M O P stays in another location and their cousin dark blue M O P in a special secret hiding spot. A dear friend of mine was very, very proud of me today for taking action and finally saying NO to being a door mat for violent and aggressive behavior. They have recently taught their own son about sticking up for themselves after being picked on by a bully at school. He said, "You can just never be too certain with people in this world. There are a lot of nuts out there and you always have the right to protect yourself when you are being threatened. This also goes for children because as parents we can't always be there for them." As a very concerned Father he has no problems confronting the school nor the bully's parents but at the same time let's just say his son finally stuck up for himself and justice was served!
It's a very long process going through the court system these days seeing most are just too overwhelmed to handle cases. You might wait days or even weeks before justice is even served. In my decision to become my own form of justice I eliminated the trips back and forth to the county court house as well wasting precious and valuable time. Something I won't be wasting on some raging idiotic lunatic soon to be ex Sister in law with a long history of breaking the law. Amen. Now if she comes near me again and decides to be brave or feeling a bit lucky that day I promise you I won't be sitting back and taking it. I might be sick but I am not without strength and I am far from stupid.
Fear nothing. Fear no one.
So for now I told the judge's office I will hold onto the paperwork but at the same time I will do what needs to be done in the name of self defense. They agreed as well the local and county Sheriff's department. 'If' and that's a huge 'if' this happens again the individual or individuals will be arrested on the spot. It will be the last and final incident report that will be taken. Guess we all run out of the 'Get Out Of Jail Free' passes sooner or later. Back fractures or not I refuse to ever again live in fear.
Today has been a pretty low key mellow day as I continue making necessary changes placing lines in the sand. I have boundaries and they must now be respected. I will take nothing less. I have suffered far enough medically and I have suffered far more by others off the wall behavior. If those seek the help they need to educate themselves on my condition and how to support me I have no problem allowing them back into my life but you can't change people. Its up to those to 'want' to change. For now I will be alright and just fine taking care of me, myself and I along with my fur gang. No one said Gastroparesis was easy but WOW! no one told me it would be this tough dealing with stress created by others on top of being sick either. WHEW!
CHEERS TO THE POWER OF ONE! If I can make it and survived this long by golly anyone can do it! AMEN!
