I finally severed all contact with my ex boyfriend. I decided I needed to do it, I called up a friend, she came over for support, and I did it. I mean, I didn't actually speak with him, but I sent him a message on facebook outlining the things that made me hate him (leaving out the rape) and told him never to contact me again. Then I blocked him and I feel relieved. I'm still really nervous he'll call or text me, but if that happens, I'll just block his number. I'm not sure it's fully hit me what I've done (I wasn't exactly sober last night) but I really think this is a good step in the right direction. [Smile]

Hey there! Can I be your cheerleader, right now? Congratulations on feeling able to do that. From the conversations we've been having I've been hearing how difficult you'd felt this would be to do. Go you! [Big Grin]

Too, if you want to talk about your feelings after doing this, we're here.

In a strange room, before you are emptied for sleep, what are you. And when you are filled with sleep you never were. I dont know what I am. I dont know if I am or not... how often have I lain beneath rain on a strange roof, thinking of home.

Thanks so much guys. I'm not even sure it's fully hit me yet. Like I said, I was much less than sober last night (I was while messaging him, just not much after) so I'm not sure I've really grasped that I did it. I'm still nervous that he'll call or text me, but I've decided to just deal with that when/if it comes. Otherwise, I'm feeling alright.
