Though, perhaps that is a bit of a misnomer. The only fallout is emotional so far, but I expect it to be physical too, as I’m not hungry and feel sick a lot of the time. This is what happens with emotional turmoil.
I have basically taken a stand against my husband, and decided that I no longer wish to live in an environment where I am being emotionally abused. It isn’t healthy for my son to have that as an example of a healthy relationship. Understandably my husband isn’t happy, but I have given him an ultimatum. Man up, or move out. He hasn’t made his decision yet, and I suspect that is because he thinks I will back down. But I won’t.
Lets put it this way, I was ready to confront a person from my past that I have had so much trouble confronting in the past. And I wouldn’t have backed down! Wouldn’t have been good in the long term for me or the person concerned.
But other than that, I am actually doing okay. I guess because I have already been through too much. I don’t need to keep putting myself through it. I’ve grown up. My mental health is actually pretty good. Moments of tears, but that is to be expected. I guess watching Dexter is probably not the best cure, but I’m enjoying the black humour in it.
Onto other matters, I sent Running Away through to my lovely editor last week – and I am excited about this book. Hopefully it will be a success, as it has been a fun one to write. As the month is ticking away quite quickly, and I like to give myself time, I will be publishing it in next month. In the meantime, I have been planning my Dragon’s League series, and I have one and a half stories already. With plans for at least another one, hopefully two, and a young adults version, this could be an interesting series. But we will see what happens 🙂
Anyway, back to life – I hope you all have a good week.
