Call ME Crazy all you want, But you are not me. Really if you were in my shoes would would have done the same to protect your sleeping family and home.... So keep you negitive opoinons to your self after reading about the following below. We are all psychically okay, but I am very shook up over walking in on him. But now I have time to think about what all happened is pertty scary. What had happend was;
Sunday Morning Oct. 21, I woke up to take my little dog out potty, First I got up about 7:06 am and went to the rest room, I guess what alerted the teenager that someone was up is when the toilet flushed. Then I walked down the hall in to the living room and seen a guy standing in the door of the TV room. The first words out on my mouth was, “who are you and what is your name?” That is when the teen back away from me and my brain register that he was not someone Jim knew. As soon as he backed away from me, and his body language did not register as positive behavior, with my Husbands work laptop case in the crook's hand he ran with it, and the Mother cougar in me chased after the Teen. As I was running out the door after the teen (My 11year-old son and Jim were asleep while this was going on) I chased him down the street SCREAMING at the top of my lungs ROBBER CALL THE POLICE!!! Oh, I woke up a few of the neighbors who seen me chase the crook down the neighbors called the police, The teen got away on my son's bike cycle. I ran back in the house scaring the living daylights out of JIM SCREAMING ROBBER CALL THE POLICE!!! OMG Jim JUMPED out of the bed (he was in his underwear) RUNNING into the Garage Grabbed his Drywall square swinging it at the guy who was trying to help me out the side door in his underwear (My 11 year-old son was asleep the whole time).
Hours later they caught the Teen who was in the House at Home Depo shop lifting and trying to us Jim’s credit cards. I ID the teen and he is in jail for now. But there was more than one person involved with the robbery.
Now I need someone to talk to who understand how I feel, because my husband may understand, but he is a "Man" if you know what I mean, and I am the one who walked in on the crook. And keeps telling to stop rehashing it. I don't feel that I am rehashing it. I just need to talk about it, because It's not over yet, we still have to go to court and I am not one to bottle up things inside If you know what I mean, I wear my heart on my sleve... They don't understand I am scard, and all the above.
And OMG what was I thinking I could have been killed.
* Note: There was no reasining with me that day I was in rage and all pumped up with adrenaline, so logcially someone who is having a rage of adrenaline don't have time to think they just react (Fight and Flight). Why couldn't I use the self defense training I have using weapons and none weaopns? When there was a weapon next to me. I feel like a failuar to my family, and I am angry,scard and feeling misunderstood about my actions.
