General Discussion / Re: Christmas Preparations
« on: December 22, 2016, 07:35:31 AM »
I am no where near ready for xmas. I do have some baking done. Have to take my son shopping so he can get his kids a gift. But as the way my life goes they sent all but less than 60 dollars of his cheque to hydro, even though he doesn't owe money they are working to fix it but you know how government work. So that is causing him a great amount of stress and making hash of the well order schedule that I had planned to get my own stuff done. But it is about spending time with family and we aren't really into gifts no pressure to find the perfect gift. You pick and I buy everyone wins. Missing my oldest son again for xmas hoping someday we will spend another xmas together as a whole family. But this year I have decided I won't let anyone throw water on my xmas my hubby is home for 10 days and that is a good thing.
 Congrats Peace I know how hard it can be for you to do somethings.
Hope everyone has a great holiday how ever you choose to spend the season.

 Thanks for the help. He has reached out to victims services. He has decided that he will do what he feels like in the daytime hours but feels that going out at night makes it worse unless he is in a car. Seems sensible to me. I will keep doing what I am doing and let him direct me to what he needs from us

 Was doing not bad until Sat my garden isn't giving me as much as I would like but it is something. Struggling with hydro prices to get everything canned. My son was looking to have more time with his kids and I am very proud of the way he has dealt with things in his life. He has shown them that he is not only stable but a great parent. Then Sat he went out and ask that a neighbour turn down music as it was waking up his kids and got attacked by an uninvited guest with a baseball bat in the head. I was and am worried about the damage he is having trouble seeing and suffering panic attacks. Hope they get this guy in jail very soon.  Missing my other grandson who lives more than 2000 miles away they grow so fast and change so much is such a short time. Hope the weather holds for my garden with out any more tornados in my area. Just reg rain please and I should get the most of my little patch.

 Hi haven't been here in a while and things have been going well. My son has been doing real well and showing those in their life just how stable he is. That ended on the weekend (him doing well). He is still stable but got attacked by a stranger who beat him in the head with a baseball bat. They haven't caught the guy yet but know who he is. My son is experiencing some problems worrying about the guy coming back. Not sleeping panic attacks. I am doing what I can but am not sure what I should or shouldn't be doing to help him. I know he won't get over it anytime soon but people think because he is a big guy some how that makes a difference to how he feels. Not sure if asking him to come to my house for a while would help or make him worry about his place and what they might do to it. So any help that anyone can give to me what works for you when you have a panic attack what can  make it worse? I know this wasn't his fault and he has some real good people who live around him who are also checking up on him. Just trying to not make it worse for him. Want him to feel as safe as he can given what happened to him. These are some real nasty people

I did write a longer post awhile ago but my internet is in and out due to the trees out front and just as I hit post it went down and I lost it. It is lovely and warm but my garden is having a hard time with all the heat so not as much produce as I would like. Not looking forward to winter I know it is coming and I am a summer girl

I am sorry you are having a hard time at the one place you should feel safe your home. Sending you hugs and hope you can find some help. People think is so easy to deal with and that everyone should fit into a mold and when you fall through the cracks for services. Remember if you feel unsafe and I get the feeling you don't want to but remember the police are there to help you if you need it and it does not always need to be physical to call them. If someone is making you feel unsafe because of their actions don't feel guilty for calling them or for causing drama you need to do what will keep you safe both physically and mentally. Hope find a solution and will be thinking of you

I know you wrote this sometime ago and I hope things have improved for you. If you have a cell phone I would record some of the things he is doing. It may not stop it but it could help you later when dealing with other things. I would think that if he keeps it up it could be seen as what it is abuse and he could be removed from the home for such actions. I know you have a hard time dealing with him and wish that I had better suggestions on how to stop it but if it gets bad call the police with your medical they may do something but at the very lest it will put him on notice that you are not going to put up with it

 My son who takes a large dose of serquil(sorry I know it isn't spelled right) and that he will need to change his meds. He is worried as it has always worked well for him. He is also worried about the switch and how it may effect his well being. Any one who can give me some tips and things to watch for. his family doc it great and easy to get into to see if he has problems but like all things sometimes the people who are effected are often the last to see how their meds are working or not. Thanks

General Discussion / Re: Hugs and Extra Support Needed
« on: January 25, 2016, 01:38:24 PM »
I am sorry that he is acting like this. Sending you extra big hugs. People can be so cruel to each other when splitting up. My brother and his wife split a couple of years ago and he is living with me due to money issues. He found out that she pawned his wedding ring from his first spouse who has passed away. The ring was to go to their son. He is very upset. She has also tried to get him arrested for stealing things by lying about stuff. He is so afraid of her that if he sees her he will turn his car around and go the other way due to her being willing to say anything to get her way. . I didn't mean to highjack your post but it helps to know other people are just as bad, some how it makes me feel better that my family isn't the only one with these kinds of things I hope you can find a lawyer soon and be able to move forward

General Discussion / Re: information for children in school too soon
« on: November 13, 2015, 12:55:03 PM »
I would agree if I wasn't seeing news articles of twelve year olds getting pregnant. Too often parents think their kids as so innocent about things and they know more than the parents do far too early. It is the world we live in today. There is new paper article about the codes kids use when texting so there parents have no idea what they are taking about to each other. You think they are talking about going to the mall and they are setting up a date for sex it is really scarey for parents these days

So sorry you aren't getting the family support that you need wish I was closer to you I would step up and be willing to take you shopping. Wishing you all the best. When my son was looking for a lawyer he had the same problem sending emails and getting no response. It did take some phone calls. I don't  now your financial situation but even if you don't qualify for full legal aid they will sometimes front the money and you pay them back after the case is settled I know they take applications by phone as well as on line. It can limit your choices of a lawyer how ever. Something to think about

 So glad you have some names but don't be afraid to check out more than one lawyer you need one that is a good fit for you. He knows what things will set off your OCD so take anything he says with a grain of salt. I don't know your financial situation so the dollar amount he is quoting you is more than likely something he pulled out of a hat unless he has been to a lawyer or something he is just hoping for. The age of your youngest will be a factor but there are way to many things to consider before any number could be reached and however that ends up no one has the right to ask for the money up front. You would need to have a lot of documents and both sides have to disclose all of their stuff so try not to let it bother you too much and at this stage it isn't whats his is his and what yours is yours you are married so all assets and all debts are looked at. Just take your time you didn't get here in a month it took years and it will take a while to come to an agreement. Most likely neither party will be completely happy with the outcome.

Paul is right he can't force you out of the house if you don't have a lawyer you need one I know you don't have a lot of money and legal aid has services that they can offer. I know you have the house but that isn't a liquid asset I would do nothing without a legal agreement. Done by or approved by a lawyer or court. If you have someone who can be your advocate to make sure you aren't pushed around it would be good maybe they could even go to the lawyer with you so you don't forget or worry that what you are asking is not important everything is important. You have been together a long time and that will come into the mix. Lawyers know what to look for and what to focus on. No movng date with out an agreement. A woman shelter may have a list of lawyers who could be a good fit for you.
