Not this past week-end, but the week-end before, my picture was in the newspaper! The story was in a Sunday insert and it was about the program that I took earlier in the year. There was a picture of me and a picture of me and my mentor. It’s really good publicity for the program, so that is great!
Last week, I went again to the free seminar given by a lawyer about separation and divorce. In the state that I live in, you have to be separated for a year before you can divorce. She said that when you separate, you can file for support at that point, but there is no guarantee that the paperwork will go through right away so you can get the money. She said that she recommends having saved up enough money to live of off for nine months. I don’t have that much money yet.
I keep looking at craigslist to see if there is anything that I can afford to rent. Nothing yet.
Last time I saw Julie, the therapist, I said something about crying. She asked me who pays attention to me when I cry. I told her nobody. My daughter doesn’t like it when I cry and always wants me to not cry. But my husband just ignores me. I wonder why Julie asked me who pays attention to me when I cry? I always figured that when I cry, I am just releasing my own frustration, sadness, anger, whatever. But I guess, maybe crying is a signal of pain, that something is not right, and maybe it should be paid attention to. I guess, too, that I have always cried alone.
