Hi everyone Please bear with me, I just need to share and ramble. This week has been the climax to the most horrible 14 months of my life. My job entails me working with adults in a local government capacity. To cut a long story short. A person decided that I had done wrong by them and thought the answer was to threaten my life with a fire-arm. I trully thought I was going to die. This week I had to face the culprit in a law court and after three days, the jury and the judge found the person guilty. At present I know it will be a custodial sentence but not for how long. That should now be the closure of it, but I am scared that this person and their family will be even more angry with me and I am frightened that revenge may the way forward for them. Even though the person's liberty will be taken away, my fear for my safety remains. The effect on my Fibro problem has been to up the depression and the isolation of the condition to its furthest extremities. I need to talk to my boss who is usually empathic, but sometimes allows the Fibro to overshadow all other issues and pushes it back into the arena of do you think you are coping? Do you need to see Occupational Health? Why do all roads in other peole's minds lead back to fibro? I sometimes get sick of this being the lame excuse not hear what I am saying about other topics totally unrelated to Fibro... In a bit of mess at the moment, this new experience has taught me that the sentencing of the guilty also means a sentence for the innocent.
