  1. productive day

    8:52pm (Mountain Time) I had a pretty good day today. I went and cleaned for singer. I was there about 4 hours. It is nice because that means I got all my hours in for this week. She said I could take a cutting from her raspberry bush so I walked home with this cutting from the bush in a pot. I must have looked awfully silly. I-spy and I planted it a bit before dinner. She cleaned out the garage which was nice. I brought a piece of tile in from the garage and started a painting on it. I think it looks kin of cool. It was nice to find a new type of surface to paint on. I was finally able to do my homework for my sponsor tonight. It had been about 3 days since I have done it and called like i am supposed to. Tomorrow I am going to go to church and return the books I borrowed last month. I have had them longer then I was supposed to have them. JM still hasn't called me back. We left her a phone message on Tuesday and I called again today. It is nice to know the police are so concerned about my safety during this process. They obviously don't care at all. I told SK today that I can't get a TOP without the rapist's address. She said oh I think JM has it I will have her call you. So much for that idea. The Police in the other state are supposed to be contacting him this week. UGH! This whole process has sucked. When it is all over I am gonna Put his name out there as a rapist on the internet so that if anyone searches his name on google they will come up with that hit. At least that way people will know. Some times I think I should have just done that instead of reporting. It may have been an easier process.
  2. Lack of sleep

    10:25pm (mountain time) Last night and today were really hard. I forgot to take my meds yesterday. I have no idea why but I forgot and thus I didn’t sleep but an hour last night. I was feeling so self-destructive last night and this morning. I didn’t think I was going to be able to hang in there with the feelings. I made a whole bunch of phone calls this morning and connected with people. I called dancer and talked to her for almost an hour. She makes me laugh and reminds me that I am going to be okay The nice thing is that I actually believe her when she tells me that. I don’t always believe people when they tell me I am going to be okay. She told me I need to start painting again. She isn’t the only one who has told me that. I guess it is time I start listening. Dancer also told me the name of the book I wanted to get. It is called “Cry Hope” by Jan Veltman. It is a book of affirmations. My food was messy today because I slept a for about 5 hours. But I had a good dinner and have been drinking lots of water which is good for me since I never do drink enough. The cats kept me company last night when I couldn’t sleep. That is always nice. I feel so much better that I got some good sleep without nightmares. I still have heard nothing from JM about getting a TOP before they contact the rapist. I need her to get me his physical address otherwise the judge won’t grant the order. Well I think that is more than enough writing for tonight.
  3. Spiderman to the rescue

    10:30pm (mountain time) I haven’t been sleeping well for about a week or so now. I have been having really bad nightmares that jar me for most of the day. I decided that it is time to call in the big guns so I went out and got Spiderman sheets. They only work for the twin bed but still I feel safer knowing they are on a bed somewhere in the house. I-spy and I were reading about the order of protection tonight since no one from the CVA has called yet. I figured I could fill out the paperwork and take it to the courthouse. Well I can get a 20 day temporary order however “the rapist” has a right to appear in court at the same time I do if I want the order to last a year. I really don’t understand why he has so many rights. More and more I am learning why women don’t report. We aren’t protected when we do. I wish doing the right thing didn’t feel so bad!
