I just have to vent for a minute. I normally take DD to visit my ex in jail every other week, because the lawyer he doesn't know I'm talking to says that will make me look even better in court (God, don't I already sound like a cultured lady?) We were supposed to go tomorrow.
DD has been pretty sick for almost 2 weeks now, first a stomach bug, then a sinus infection that's still made her throw up. Last night was the first night she's slept solid in that time period, & this morning was the first time she hasn't woken up, been sick, & had to have a bath. She's still pretty weak; about 10 minutes of playing & she ran out of steam & wanted snuggles.
Talking to the ex earlier, he still wants me to bring her to visit! It's a 2 1/2 hour drive both ways, which is hard on her anyway, & the high is in the 30s. Augh! "Just for an hour, I just want to see my girl" & I'm thinking, "Yes, Eddie, that makes perfect sense. Let me drag a barely-recovering 5 year old who hasn't kept down a tube feeding in a week, on a trip that will have her spending 5 hours in a cars eat, to see you for one."
What kills me is that my adrenaline started spiking & my stomach went into knots telling him no! He's been gone for almost a year, & my body is still afraid of upsetting him. & that I was stupid & proud enough to stay with him.
Sorry so long, it was either post or knock my head against a wall.
