This is the one. This is the question that is going to ultimately float me to safety or sink me.

A feeling wash’s over my body & instinctively put up my barriers & my safety bubble. The only people capable of joining me in my bubble at any given time is my offspring. I have been conditioned this way over time. I am a product of my environment now. One might call it institutionalized I call it self-preservation. I finally had guts enough to stand up & speak for myself in court since my attourney wouldn’t do it I had to do it for myself. I had been waiting patiently for 6 months to get a 5 second questioned answered & actually ended up initiating myself. I’m glad I had the balls to follow through in court & sparked a representation hearing.
