Thank you for your response.
Your information is very helpful to me. I guess she has been treating me with so little regard and her behaviour has involved and decimated my entire family. I did have the urge to be able to "label" her. I recognise though, (as a result of reading your response) that if I just remain true to myself and give specifics about the way in which I have been treated (events that can be substantiated), and provide the expert witness statements (which I have) relating to her claims that I have dizzy spells - no true. also that I have a history on Mental Breakdowns and Paranoia (more expert witness letters) which is also not true. I did suffer stress when she announced that she (was taking a break from me), I have since made all of that work in my favour by taking more for me in life and applying that throughout my entire family. One does wonder just where there will be some recognition about her life habit of simply getting what she sees as being in her way - out of the way.
I have managed to get a Court Ordered Counselling session to try and work out a suitablee arrangement for the girls to have access to me. She is wanting six times a year but only in her presence. She was never there when I was there! She puts a damper on everything with the "bad air" she brings and her superior attitude and the way she simply ignores me. Not even polite conversation takes place.
I like to go for a swim, play the drums (African Drums), the girls love the fun of the music and the dancing, painting with water on concrete, cutting fruit into different shapes, just being together and chatting, they can tell me about their school and I used to read to them, now they can read to me. Trips to the library might be fun.
Thank you for your input.
