and it is scary how quick it becomes that way. sad

I need some self respect. Where do I get it from?

<not ignoring you - off to bring in the washing, if anyone is able to answer. Thank you.>

TrillianAstra Mon 01-Jun-09 17:59:15

Only from inside yourself, or something else trite, probably. Sorry.

Unicornvomit Mon 01-Jun-09 18:00:00

trillian is right

no-one can give it to you

you have to work on it

try some positive affirmations

TrillianAstra Mon 01-Jun-09 18:01:20

You are FABulous, remember?

You've been so helpful on Trinity's threads recently.

Have you another wnoderful Waitrose order coming this week?

I think you need to get out into the sunshine. (I always say this to you grin) I think you're finding your dc a bit challenging atm which won't help. Maybe think of somehting special you can all do together each evening after school to take some of the stress out. And, while you are feeling so low, stop reading the news for a bit. I've noticed today you've posted some really upsetting news stories That won't help ime, just make you feel worse.

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 18:26:05

I hear you all

It is someone that is making me feel like this. So harder to deal with but have just emailed them to leave me alone so hopefully....

Unicornvomit Mon 01-Jun-09 18:26:53

it;s not still that person from prevoiulsy is it??

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 18:29:41

Yes, But I have told him to leave me alone and will be changing my number and email tomorrow. I am not going to let all my hard work go to waste. I have had a lovely day with messaging DH today and that is what I want to think about.

Unicornvomit Mon 01-Jun-09 18:37:30

i can';t believe you are still having contact from him after everything

no wonder you ar still all over the plcae

why have you not cut him off weeks ago?

you need to push anything and anyone negative out of your life

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 18:38:16

I had cut him off weeks ago,

Have discovered a thing on my phone to block him too.

Unicornvomit Mon 01-Jun-09 18:44:21

so this is the first time he has contacted you in weeks?
even telling him to leave you alone is an in road for him, you cannot, cannot have any contact or exchange of words with him at all

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 18:46:20


I am sure he will leave me alone now. I have made it very clear.

Unicornvomit Mon 01-Jun-09 18:47:18

i have deja vu

you have to be strong

i am stunned you are still hearing from him and he has not got the message

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 18:48:40

To be fair a while ago I did ask how he was and maybe that is what he is answering hmm

I was doing so well and then when he texted I was so happy sad and now I am bloody cross at myself for replying.

Unicornvomit Mon 01-Jun-09 18:50:54

after everything, i can;t believe you asked him how he was.

you are , without wishing to sound horrible, making it worse for yourslef

no contact means no contact

from you too !!

your DH is a one in a million

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 18:52:12

you are not horrible, you are right.

I was worried about him.

stupid stipid girl

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 18:53:04

DH just made me laugh grin

He IS one in a billion.

New phone number here I come grin

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 18:53:35

And thank you for not being as harsh as I deserve. smile

TrillianAstra Mon 01-Jun-09 18:53:38

Um, so the 'him' and the DH are separate people then. No idea of backstory. Hope you can figure it out.

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 18:54:28

I will.

I fell off the wagon after a few weeks. hmm I can stay on it forever. I have too. I want too. And I will.

Unicornvomit Mon 01-Jun-09 19:08:14

okey doke , glad you took it in the spirit in which i meant.. stay strong, that is the key.

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 19:12:50

the self esteem thing comes from thinking i don't deserve anything other than what others decide to give me. How sad was i to be smile to get a text off him and then feel like crap when he ignores my response.

idoit idiot idiot

Unicornvomit Mon 01-Jun-09 19:20:05

think of how devasted your DH would be to read that .

thikn of how betrayed he would feel

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 19:21:36

I know all that.

He knew something was up and was about him. he just teased me and said I needed to have something to occupy my time to stop me thinking.


FabulousBakerGirl Mon 01-Jun-09 19:21:55

He being DH
Him being ex
