I’ve been sitting on the edge of a panic attack since this afternoon…
Since I noticed in my missed calls that I have auto-rejected calls from E in my phone again.
I thought I was done hearing from him, that he’d finally gotten the idea that I wasn’t going to talk to him anymore.
What do I have to do?
My phone automatically rejects his calls, shunting them directly to voicemail, which he never leaves, thank the Goddess.
I’ve set my phone to send any texts to spam, which means I never see them, they disappear from my phone, never to be read.
I don’t receive his emails, and he hasn’t sent any, that I know of, because they too, go directly to my spam box.
I thought this was all over with.
And yet, today, I had a missed call while I was driving, so I checked my call log when I got to work, thinking it might be one of my kids, or my parents…
(It was no one I knew, so it wasn’t important)
But, I found 4 auto-rejected calls between Saturday and today.
And tonight, I had another.
After missing a call from my Nephew, I checked my call log again, and there it was.
The same number. The only number on my auto-reject list.
He swore to me once that he would come here, no matter what, to see me, even if I turned him away, he was still going to come, just to meet me & to try to change my mind.
Yes, he knows where I live, I was in a relationship with him for 4&1/2 years, even if it was only long-distance, it was still a relationship.
And the pain, and the panic, these thoughts incite…are very real.
He broke me so badly. I’m still struggling with severe trust issues because of him.
And the edge of panic slices through me like a knife…and I bleed all over again.
