Getting through

I woke up this morning (Sunday) feeling and looking a lot better compared to last week. As you know the Violence Restraining Order was finally served last week too.

There was a wild storm in the middle of the night and it woke me up. I heard a huge thud which I thought was a piece of debris from a building site flying into our yard. It was actually a brick wall, that fell, in our back yard.

The first thing that came to mind was that “S” must’ve tried to climb it at one stage and put pressure on it hence its reason for falling. My mum also thought of the same scenario!

Paranoid? Well, I feel safe living with my parents but still get scared in the middle of the night in case he has plans to break in to murder us while we’re sleeping. Honest.

Lets hope these thoughts dwindle to the point of non-existence. I am in need of a decent night’s rest.



Order was served – finally!

I received a phone call yesterday just before 4pm. It was the officer at the Family Protection Unit at the Police Station I attended last week. She told me that the Violence Restraining Order had finally been served at 2:05pm. I couldn’t thank her enough for letting me know.

My body was tingly but knew that just because it had been issued didn’t mean I should no longer practice caution. I must remain vigilant.

Now all I’m waiting for is my copy of the Final Order which I need to carry with me at all times.

I’m still a nervous wreck. I am undertaking a transformational program in the coming weeks.

He now has a Restraining Order in two states – WA & NSW (his ex girlfriend).
