Just had to share...

I went into a health store the other day. It was a shop that I had frequented very regularly and had gotten to know the salesclerk.

At the time, I was married with large boils and pimples on my face, eating-disordered thin, depressed among other things. Just plain unhealthy.

That was 2 years ago.

When she saw me she couldn't believe how much my face had cleared! (I'm also at a good weight). She was happy for me and somewhat intrigued, so I told her how I did it.

" I'm getting divorced!". (lots of smiling and laughing)

We high-fived each other. hellish as this experience has been, there are perks and it is soooooo nice to be reminded of where I was and where I am now.

Wow, this is a great story, GraceLove. It seems the horror going on inside my body and mind, affected you on the outside as well. So happy you are getting out of a truly unhealthy situation! As am I.

In the bumpy road towards healing, it is easy to forget how far we have come; thus, I am glad the salesclerk reminded you that you are moving on the right direction

Stress manifests in many ways!

I have a condition that definitely gets worse whenever I am overwhelmed.

Like you, it was amazing what my D did for my condition

You go girl!~

Thanks for the encouragement everyone. I really appreciate it.

I had just had a 'moment' where for some ridiculous reason I wanted to phone him and let him have it. (He FINALLY re-directed his mail after over a year). The fact that he wouldn't do this before triggered me.

AND I have been in NC since December, (since my DD wedding day). Only contact is through the lawyers.

I reaaaalllly don't want to break my beautiful NC, I've worked so hard to re-direct the anger. Yet there are these moments where I think: "will it really hurt do just let it out?" It's such a temptation and one I have been able to overcome so far.
Anyways, just had to get that out for now.

Donít! Maybe your interaction with the salesclerk was meant to be a positive reminder on why NC is important for you.

Thatís such a great story!

GraceLove posted 9/11/2018 18:33 PM

Thanks yuvas. I know I shouldn't break my pact with myself. I will not contact him.
