Default Re: Hello All!

Beth,

I am so sorry to hear about the POS. If only you could divorce every connection to someone like that...

Glad you called the police and I hope that they took the initiative to have an intense talk with him. He may not be the type for that to work but I have seen it work a half a dozen times. Sometimes the police putting the fear of god into them will make them behave better as they don't want to suffer any consequences.

I don't know what the laws are like there. Here if the threat is credible and without conditions, it is a crime - that is if he says he's going to hurt you without saying "if you don't... whatever" and he's in a geographic and physical condition to actually carry it out.

Not that mind games are better, but I hope it's "only" mind games, that you are not physically in danger.

I would give a lot to be able to ease your burdens right now... I'm pretty sure I would completely crack under the pressure you are under. They'd be taking me away in a special truck...
