It is once again, ICLW, and instead of beating my head against the bricks to find a new, creative way to introduce myself, I decided to tweak what I did last month and incorporate the many changes that have happened in the last couple of weeks. My apologies to the regular readers, and anyone else who was expecting, well, to read something they hadn’t read before. Maybe you’ll get a gratuitous Miss Famous pic or two at the end for your troubles. 😉
So here it is, me (for the moment) in a nutshell:
Girl with issues meets Boy. Girl and Boy marry. Girl always knows they have problems (but, really, who doesn’t?), but does not realize the depth of said problems. Along comes the evil Infertility and Girl experiences great amount of pain. Girl is no longer able to keep juggling all balls in the air to keep Boy happy. Girl gets therapy and starts to get healthier. As Girl gets healthier, relationship goes down the tubes and Boy gets more and more emotionally abusive. In Spring of ’09, Girl gets a clue and gets out of Dodge, with the fabulous Miss Famous in tow. Boy goes even more demented than before and does many crazy things, presumably to hurt Girl. In September of ’09, Girl gets job in a nearby city and is able to move out of parents’ house (hallelujah!). The change is welcome, but Girl still has a long road of healing ahead. Girl has wonderful friends, both in the real and electronic worlds and is regretful only that she did not leave Boy sooner.
So that’s the basics. Boy is Mr. X. I may talk about Miss Famous a little too much (yes, I’m one of THOSE). Divorce is still in process thanks to X’s assholery*; it may have to go to court. I’d like to be a mom someday, but that’s all on the back-burner for the moment as I’m still not quite the most solid brick in the stack, if you know what I mean.
