Continued Excerpts from the past

This is a continuation of an explanation I started at the end of The Liars Club post. So, to wrap this up I guess. The two complaints against the lawyer and the psychiatrist were promptly dismissed. BUT, the complaint against the therapist with the board of social workers in Minnesota is still pending. :/ Yeah, I know. Long time with no conclusion. I have pretty much given up on that. But they still send me a notice from time to time telling me that my case is still to be considered and that these things take time. Yeah? Whateva. :) So, I hope you can see the reality of all of this because it is my reputation on the line. I'm going to ask you. Have none of you ever had this kind of hurtful thought enter your mind in passing? If you say you haven't, then I truly have to wonder if you're being honest with yourself. Yes, that's an awful thought. But, that's the point people. It was just a thought. I hope you can see me in the light in which I tried to convey this episode in my life. I had to go in front of a board of directors at one of the temporary hospitals they put me in after the 2 month stay at the mental health unit. And tell my story about the intention vs just a thought before they would let me go. And that is why they let me go and they also wrote a memo in my file that they concurred with me about the situation. Whew! I hope if you've read this you can see a bit of my side. I'm sure there will be some who just don't give much credence to my side and will defend her reasoning for doing what she did. But she did more damage than she did good. Except for the fact that she probably saved my life. But then she screwed it up pretty good too. I can only imagine all the people my old girl friend has told about this. As she is quite social, and as you know, people love a good piece of gossip. Thanks for reading if you still are. This was actually pretty cathartic for me. Love Leslie. Note: Dear reader, I wrote the Chrysalis to announce that I am 61 yr's old and I am transitioning Male to Female. Does this matter in this past occurrence. Only in so much as I was presenting and was known as Robert then, not Leslie. I'm still in need of changing my name legally. <3

Leslie, sorry I never even read this yet. I see it is a necessary second part to the other piece preceding it. I'm sorry for all that happened to you. Please try to put it behind you and focus on today!! I'm happy to be your friend here and that all your wishes can come true!

Thanks for reading this Andrea. It was cathartic and it was part of the letting go process. <3 :)
