I've had this discussion with pretty much everyone...
So, before I go any further I want everyone to know I'm FINE!
I'm OK in my van, I promise!
Now, besides the fact that I have to start over yet again, I've gotten almost everything I want to keep out of my moms apartment.
Living in the van right now is tight because I still have stuff that I need to drop off at certain places, and then there's the stuff that I just don't know what to do it.
Not to mention, I'm a packrat and I really need to cut down the clutter.
What I really want to do is sew and make jewelry...those are my therapy, and right now I'm unable to do them. I think I'm going to try to make some jewelry today, but not sure about that.
All I know is I'm settling into this van life...I have a little schedule right now where I spend my days.
Other than that, I'm catching up on my sweeps, and just biding my time until I'm able to drive out of here...which should be soon.
It's really bad that I hide at night, and I constantly hide during the day because I'm very scared of my moms employee.
I know that there is a plan for me, because I have faith, but sometimes it's hard to have the patience that comes with it.
My van needs a radiator and without it, I really can't drive any distances...I'm trying to raise the money right now for it, and it's only a couple hundred, but the past couple of months, I was getting data boosts on my phone bill so that mom could keep watching Netflix. It was something she enjoyed, and I very much wanted her to be happy...I guess I screwed up with that one.
With everything that has gone on, I just want to protect my mom again. And I can't do that because she thinks that the people with her now are the ones that are protecting her and keeping her safe. I know through the grapevine that things are not good for her, and I know by the way she is acting that something bad is going on, but I can't know the exact thing until someone tells me for sure.
However, I've made one decision....no matter what happens, I will be there as a shoulder for her to cry on, but I'm not going to save her, I'm not going to put any money towards her finding a place or anything...no one was there for me, and I had to hustle in order to just save my van. I know this may sound mean, but I warned her not to involve the landlord, that I would leave on my own etc...She's the one that listened to her other "family"....you know...the one's that told her she was so much better without me. Again, I know this may sound mean...but I'm the one that can't sleep at night and is scared all the time...
I WORRY ABOUT HER...I worry about her well being, I worry about her safety...I worry about her financial situation...and I want to help her...but I will not...not this time...I cannot keep getting stepped on by those that I care about.
On another note...people wonder how I can stay by myself all the time, and it's because if I let someone in, they always hurt me...and a person can only take so many scars. It's better to be by myself than risk the chance of getting hurt again.
I'm a very caring person...I'm a very honest person...and I'm very open about my feelings...they are literally on my sleeve all the time. I forgive easily but there is only so much that a person can take before they shut down...and I'm almost to the shut down point...I literally don't want a relationship and I don't want an apartment....I feel safe in my van because I know that no one can impose on my life there...no one can easily take it away from me. Yeah, I could lose it because of the fact that I can't afford the repairs right now, but this is only temporary...I will soon be able to afford all of it.
Anyway, this is my post for the day, or couple of days....I'm not sure how things are going to be soon because I'm very low on funds and no way to get more...so I got crackers etc to feed myself, and if I can find a place in Cove to park I should be good.
Please keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers...she needs it more than me right now.
