I was at a friend’s house all day after dd went with her father. I needed the support.
Somehow it’s harder for me knowing she’s with her dad, now that we’ve actually spoken with a counselor about it. Maybe, in some way it’s made the abuse all that much more official…if that makes sense.
Anyway, she did tell me she feels better. She said it yesterday and she said it today, although I did see her take several deep breaths as we got closer to our meeting place.
She’s so brave. After she was gone, I almost started screaming. It’s repulsive to me to think of her in the company of someone so toxic.
I’ll make it. We both will. We have to. Anything less is unacceptable.
