I don't know if you read here anymore or not. I haven't seen you post in a while, but because of the date, (one that still rings in my head) I had to let you know that I was thinking of you.

You and a few other posters will know what this thread pertains to. I just want you to know that I appreciate you and the support that you were to me in that time. I am still here to post and be a mom to my kids. Thank you for being you, and the support that you provided during that really rough time in my life. I am thankful to say that I don't get that way anymore. I get down, and I get discouraged, but, I have come a long way in three years. A lot has taken place in my life in those three years, but I am thankful for the friends I had here to help me through.

I am a different woman and a blessed woman. I have gotten stronger, and am on a mission to see the other side of things. I don't feel like I have to give up anymore. At least not most days 🙂 Thanks again Kroika.

((((kroika)))) Hope life is treating you well. Think of you often.

Hey Sleepless and Lolli,

Great to see you both. After I placed this post I looked back and read through that one. To be honest, it was almost embarassing. That said, its where I was then. To be honest though....I knew that I had come a good distance, but if I was looking for proof....there it was. It also kept things in perspective as to how long my marriage has been shit, and how miserable I have been....therefore, appreciating that in less than 10 weeks, that nightmare will be over as well.

You two ladies were a part of that thread as well. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 3 years seems like a long time in all reality, but, not when I think about how far I have come. I have a lot of healing yet to do, and I will....but, I can really appreciate where I am at the moment.

The other thing that I found interesting about that old thread was how desperate I still was for my mother. Not to mention the several months to follow including the "sisterhood" threads. What seems absolutely awesome to me is this...these last few months have been VERY difficult for me, going through my divorce and being raped...but really, I haven't wanted my mom. To me.....that is just HUGE.

Anyway...I will quit rambling. Thank you ladies!! For the last 3+ years of support. You are awesome.

Think of you both often!!

Mich

Hi Mich!

Three years- WOW! What a long way you have come. And the journey continues? How is school going? It is grueling for me, I'm nearing the end, however, I was very ill over the summer with the H1N1 flu and it set me back a whole semester. That coupled with working part time and going to school is madness- but I will get through it.

So tell me, are you really going to go to nursing school? It's a great profession, especially with a degree in social work. This time around however, I am going into a new field- and I can't wait to get started.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Isis

Hey Isis....

School is going!! I was taking 13 credits this term, but I dropped it to six a couple of weeks ago. Between the divorce and the rape, I couldn't do it all. I kept my Intro to Soc class and Eliminating Self Defeating Behaviors.

Going back, I started out with completing my Certificate in Corrections. Then I switched to Social Work. Once I left my stbx (that is the first time I have posted that....kind of liked it)I came to realize some things pretty quick. I had a minimum of 3 years left for even my bachelors, and probably 4. That made me nervous, as obviously I can't not work for the next four years. The other thing became that everyone said that I should go through with my RN and at that point just get my Masters in Social Work. However, I think that at this point what I am going to do is go through the EMT program and get a job. That is a one year program and I think that I will be able to handle it pretty well. Once I have that under control, then I will go back and complete the schooling for what it is that I really want to do. My ultimate dream at this point would be to get my RN, and then complete my Masters in Social Work. What I dream of is being a nurse in the SANE unit. Some people couldn't handle it I know. I know that it would be difficult, no doubt....but, I think that I could do it and have my whole heart in it. But, with my RN OR my Masters in Social Work, it wouldn't limit me to that field. It is going to take me a while to get to what it is that I really want, but I will NOT give it up....not for him. I am determined, and I have just accepted that it is going to take me a little longer than I had planned.

I am sorry to hear that you got sick with that nasty flu. I am glad to hear that you are almost done with school...what direction are you headed once you are done??

Great to see you.

Congratulations for hanging in there through all of it. It hasn't been easy, and I imagine that there will be some more hard times - but you've really come a long way. Great job, and keep at it!
