Court tomorrow and MRI wednesday. Probably most stressful week of my life. Worst is I'll be alone for both. I have had such bad luck just lately, so many losses and things go wrong, its hard to accept that these are purely random events. Even I, a reasonably sensible academic start imaging that I am storing up luck for the future. Its not true of course...all just a series of random events. Or as my Mum would have said, ' you make your own luck'. So courage to the sticking place on thursday night, it'll all be over with.
Well day 1. Of super stress week over and my ex has dramatically underestimated me. Well no more. Judge was clearly very sympathetic. Anyway he has to pay me £500 a month maintenance, drop the £400 I send him...plus 12months back pay. I will be £900 a month better off!!!!!!! Thank you all so much for your thoughts. It really helped. I read them all as I sat and waited in the waiting room. Yeah you got this Jayne (my real name). Thank you thank you thank you....onwards. (£900=$1300...not sure about Austrailian $)
I wish I could be your advocate for both events, A. But you know what, sometimes having the space to reflect on your own inner strength when you're facing something significant, can be a better option than having someone chatting in your ear. Sending love and best wishes....
hang in there, when the day begins, just remember, time will pass, the day will end, you will be home again and it will be over. I know leading up to these things is stressy as is going through them. Promise yourself a nice tea/coffee/scotch? once you get home from each of these.
I've just been reading all the comments and your replies. I really sympathise with you.
If only we could do something "physical", like banging your ex's head against the wall of a synagogue. (Giving a whole new meaning to the description "wailing wall".)
MRI to look for what?
