Certifiable – Edited Version

I had a bit of a rough weekend. Not sure why.

A year ago I was in Tahoe for my friends wedding. My boyfriend was supposed to be with me, but he had to turn around and fly home because his uncle died. I wouldn’t find out until 6 months later that his uncle hadn’t actually died, and he actually had to fly home because his other girlfriend found out. I still don’t know what she found out – if she found out that he was in Tahoe, or that he was with me. I guess it doesn’t really matter.

A lot of things don’t really matter, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think about them, or dwell on them at times.

This weekend was one of those weekends where I didn’t want to do anything. I spent a lot of time staring blankly at the walls, burning my eyes out playing solitaire, or blindly staring at the computer screen. Saturday I did get out, grocery store, used bookstore, took some stuff to Goodwill. Sunday…well, I kept trying to get myself to get up and go somewhere, but I just couldn’t do it. My mind was both numb and active at the same time, shuffling through scenes and conversations.


Well, here’s the part that’s edited out.  I can’t say the rest online, lest someone call the looney bin on me.

Still having a rough time of it today, but don’t call the psych ward on me yet. I’ll be fine. I’ll get out of this funk. I’m just…

Really lonely.

    This breaks my heart. I’ve never experienced anything like this but that doesn’t mean I can’t empathise. (Not a typo by the way, we Brits use an ‘s’ where you Yanks use a ‘z’ – realise, analyse etc).

    Anyway, hope you’re feeling better 🙂

  2. Hope you’re feeling better. How about a craft night next week?

    I am feeling better. Mostly, at least. 🙂 Thanks, guys! (Sara, craft night next week should definitely be doable.)

  4. Does the crazy thing you can’t talk about here involve a little bit of cyber stalking? Or, oh, driving by his place just because?

    Never mind. Don’t answer. But for what it’s worth, while I haven’t been in your shoes exactly, I did go through a very rough break-up years ago (with the woman I eventually — foolishly — got back together with and married). And from what I’ve read, you’ve handled a much worse situation with a hell of a lot more grace than I ever managed. And you seem to have come a lot farther a lot faster than I did.

    As I deal with my own current situation, these words keep coming to mind: the only way out is through. You already seem to be well on your way. Hang in there.

      No, no stalking, cyber or otherwise. But you’re not going to trick me into saying what it actually was! 🙂

      Thanks for the kind words – it was tough, for a while there, to be graceful about it all, when all I wanted to do was make sure every single person he knew knew what a sleaze he was. But that would just make me as bad as him, and we all know I’m a MUCH better person than he is. 😉
