So me and my ex went to court for the criminal harassment charge yesterday. I was on time and he wasn't so the judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest and dismissed me "till further notice." Apparently he showed up a half hour late and was notified that the hearing was going to be rescheduled. He went into a fit of rage because he thought I was going to drop the charge. No one told him that. He just assumed it. He then called his mother and threated that he was going to go to family court and get custody of my son and he wasn't going to let neither one of us see him or some such if I didn't drop the charge. He threatened his mother with this all night last night and tried to coerce her into going coming to court and lying in his defense. He said if she didn't come in and testify against me (perjure herself), he would make sure she never saw our son again. I assured her that his threats were not valid. He can not get our son like that for various reasons (incompetent, criminal history, crazy, etc). He just tried and the judge dismissed even hearing it, lol. His threats are empty. Anyway, she called me up tonight telling me that he started calling her up repeatedly just like he did to me that night I pressed charges on him for harassment. She said he was acting crazy, cussing her, threatening her about the baby, and calling non stop. She said her other son advised her to "Cut all ties with him, nip that in the bud, and put a restraining order on him." I died laughing because apparently I have set a new precedent for taking out restraining orders on my crazy ex, lol.

I am nervous to cry in front of other people including my therapist because I can’t anticipate how he will react. Most of my life I was either beaten or teased for crying and during some of the worst of it I was told not to cry. My therapist asked me how I would want him to respond and I had no words. Maybe just a gentle reply that it was ok? Any positive therapy responses to crying?...
It's so hard to move on from multiple traumas since childhood onward. I was forced to grow up without a family bc they abused me so bad. I was treated like I didn't exist when I wasn't being abused. It has effected me and my life in every way possible. I haven't been able to have anything that resembles a normal life bc of this despite years of therapies and medicines plus self help practices.
