It's not for the faint of heart.

Welcome to my slightly silly, often odd, and mostly messy life.

It's just a piece of paper.

I am acutely aware that the restraining order against my X is nothing more than a piece of paper. My X was released from prison on the 6th of March. Starting on the 9th I began receiving calls at work where someone just breaths on the other end. No speaking, no other noises. In less than a month I have received 10 of these calls.

Last night I received the same kind of call on my cell phone. That number is unlisted. I just changed carriers and got a new number a few days before his release. How did he get my number?

Why won't he leave me alone? I can't go through this again. I know it's him, and it's a viation of my restraining order, but he's smart enough to use a blocked or unavailable number. I can't prove it, so there is nothing I can do except sleep with my .38 under my pillow and pray to God that tormenting me via the phone gives him a big enough thrill that he doesn't come looking for me or my kids.

I have a sinking feeling thatvthis is the beginning of something very bad.


  1. I'd be freaking out by now. Does he communicate with your family? Maybe he got your cell # this way.

    Doesn't matter, if I were you, with kids to protect, I'd pack up my car with only the necessary, retrieve all my cash from the bank and vanish. Work & school can be dealt from a distance and only a minimum of trustworthy people need to be aware of your situation.

    Anyway, I'm sure you know all that! Sorry for the long comment.

  2. Sitting here feeling ineffective. Just know we love you and are here to help whenever possible. I really liked when he was in prison.

    But, like I said, be aware, be safe and document everything.

    And as T says: FTFF!

    Luv ya,

  3. Ugh, saying prayers for you all.

    And document EVERYTHING!

  4. Man, thats crazy that your ex is STILL tryna bother You! I guess I shouldn't trip when ma ex doesnt even care to talk with me. *smile* That was just to lightnen the load on this situation.
    I pray that you and your kidz remain safe at night. Yes keep that .38 with ya so when ANY unwanted person or thing comes thru that door...BLOW THEY FRUCKIN HEAD OFF! *smile* But keep the Bible EVEN Closer..Stay Blessed, ma.

  5. I think you should contact the prosecutor or local domestic violence detective (if your town has one) and work with them on getting your phones tapped or phone records or something - at the very least document via email or letter that you are requesting assistance with this maniac!

  6. Ugh. Wow. Stay safe....and I agree with cassee that you should see about phone tapping.
