Here it goes

True to form, Scott has called me 3 times in the last 24 hours. Each call has gotten shorter and shorter with the last ending with me yelling into the phone for him to leave me alone and quit calling me. What's surprising is that each time he acts so surprised and deflated that I don't want to talk to him. Now lets hope that he doesn't find a way to come to Dayton and bother me. I had planned to move soon but don't think I will be able to afford it now so here I sit. This doesn't help my "I give up" problem.

**update** He just called a FOURTH time and this time got screamed at and cussed out. This is not going to be fun. Maybe I need to figure out a new plan to move. Sell booty on the corner?

can you get the restraining order to include phone calls? Is it possible to block his number?

I'm so sorry that he's doing this to you. Keep up the strength, he's being childish and stubborn, but you're stronger than that! You can do it. Don't hesitate to involve the law if it comes to that!

We don't know each other, but I follow your blog. I hope I'm not stepping in here unwanted, and I hope this doesn't make you mad or upset. I watched my mmother go through an awful, abusive marriage, and it kills me to think women go through this daily. So, here goes with what I have to say.

In some states "no contact" can include phone calls. It may also be possible to file telephone harassment charges. Phone records will back you up on this. Should you chose to go this route, it will be tough on you, mentally and emotionally.

My best wishes, whatever you decide to do. Keep strong. Do what is right for you and your children. I pray for the best possible outcome for your family. You and your children deserve it. I'll be praying for you, and you'll be in my thoughts. Good luck.

After re-reading my comment, I want to add: I don't know your complete circumstances, just what I've read here. I haven't seen what's been going on, and I don't pretend to know. I don't know if your situation was abusive. Only you know that. I put in the comment about my mother's abusive marriage just to let you know that I have seen people close to me go through bad relationships before. I pray to God yours isn't anywhere near as bad as my mom's was. No one deserves what she went through.

I just wanted to put it out there that I'm not pretending or acting like I know your situation, only looking to give one possible remedy. Again, good luck. I'll be praying for you and your family for a good, peaceful oucome.

This sucks.

I love you.
Patricia,
Thank you so much for your comments. No, they weren't too forward or even unwanted. Thank you for sharing and I appreciate anytime you want to speak up...especially out of concern or an effort to help. I think you're awesome.
