Bullying awareness: Your story
My Life Story Part 7
For me, depression gets a lot worse considering what went on thus far. She was finally released from River Valley, she acted OK for a little while, but as always things get out of hand yet again. It was so bad, the neighbors would think that it was me breaking things and so on, but in fact it was her. She would make me so mad to where I would yell, and she would break things while I am yelling, making it seems as if it was me doing it all. It was so bad to where a social worker came an got her and my daughter out of the apartment, thinking I was in fact abusing them. I looked at my daughter's mother and told her to tell the truth, that I wasn't abusing them and all she could do is whisper I know, but yet just wouldn't get up the guts to tell the truth.There was this other time that me and her got into it, just out of the blue there was a knock on the door. She answers it, standing at the door was a tall black man, he told her to let him in so he can get to me. I guess he thought I was abusing her. I told her not to let him in but she didn't listen. He crosses the door frame and entered the hallway. I dared him to come closer, the plan of mine was using my dad's old baseball bat to make peace with him and the friends he had with him. This man had to be at least 6' 11" to seven feet tall. I then heard his buddy, tell him not to do it because I could have him arrested for entering my home uninvited, so he said some choice words to me, then walked back outside. It wasn't too long after that, she lands herself right back into the mental ward for the third time. She was in there for a little over 3 weeks or so and they came to the conclusion that she was just doing all of this for attention and released her. She was taken off the Prozac and things did somewhat mellowed out. I started working for the newspaper handling some of the route deliveries, I guess you can say I was a paper boy but most my deliveries was down in my car. We had made quite bit of money to where we was able to rent a house, and so we moved down on the east end of Portsmouth, Ohio in which was around 1998, in December.
Around the time we was moving our things into the house, I was still doing my late night deliveries, plus using the time to move most our stuff in the house. I was moving none stop because we didn't want to take so long to make the move. Around the last night taking some more boxes over, I decided to drive around for a bit because I really wasn't in no hurry to get back to the apartment. I came across this woman standing on the side of the road, she looked so cold. With me having a heart, I just couldn't stand seeing a woman being cold like that. I pulled over to her and asked if she needed a ride. She asks if she could just ride along in the car for a bit to warm up and I gladly said okay. She enters the car and we drove off. I took her to the the house and well you can pretty much guess what happened next. After we had all our stuff moved in and was settled, she landed a job working at a shoelace factory. She would work from morning to afternoon or sometime after. During the week and sometimes the weekend. I still had my job delivering papers, and things actually was going pretty good, till one day, I left her movie laying on the heater and it melted. Dirty Dancing was the movie. She went off on me, I just couldn't win for losing with this woman. My ex one day came back into the picture during the time she was working and well that was crazy. We slept together, while my daughter's mother was at work. Leaving me with scratches on my back and blonde hairs on the couch. I didn't take my shirt off till all the scratches had faded and the blonde hair, well she was convinced finally that it was hers. I say that I pretty much got even with her by placing the shoe on the other foot as it were.Things had chilled out some and we were okay once again, till 2000, when my car blew a rod and that was the end of my Job. The newspaper place screwed me out of my last pay check and we ended up happening to move in with my mom yet again. Well while living at mom's my ex and her boyfriend had ran into my daughter's mother and told her what had happened between me and my ex down in east end at the house. On top of that they added a lie saying that I also slept with a woman that worked at Wal-Mart, in New Boston, Ohio. She threaten me and said she was leaving me, but she is taking my daughter with her too. I begged and begged her not to go, I told her that they was lying to her, but the deal with me and my ex was the only thing true. I told her that she had accused me to many times and if I was going to be accused of doing something that I just might as well do it. Plus, I thrown up the fact that she had cheated on me before more than once, so how was what I did, any different? I finally convince her to stick around. She ends up in really bad pain and I saved her life by calling the ambulance and having her rushed to the Hospital, only to later that night having her Gall Bladder removed.
That was enough to show that I still cared about her.Things was okay for a while, maybe a month or to, then she ends up losing her cool with me yet again. She had me in the living room pounding me on my back and I warned her if she didn't stop hitting me she was going to regret it.
