Wednesday morning Tiara and I drove Trinity to school and on our way home Tiara was holding my hand. She started sinking her nails into my skin and I pulled my hand away and said “stop, don’t hurt Mommy.” She then grabbed my hand again as I was turning onto our street and once again I pulled my hand away from her as she started to scratch me.
Well, that really pissed her off and before I saw it coming she had me by the hair. I couldn’t get myself free because I was still buckled in but I finally got away from her. I then went around to her side of the car and was trying to encourage her to get out and she lunged at me. She had a handful of hair in each of her hands and was pulling with all her might. When this happens I have to lean in towards her not away or it hurts more. Leaning in is problatic because she can usually get a better grip. At one point I was screaming for help.
I yelled, “please someone help me, help me” over and over again and no one came. I was sobbing and hysterical with my head pinned to the sidewalk while she attacked and no one came. I finally got loose and was able to make it to the front door but I couldn’t find my keys faster enough before she caught me. I was banging and crying and still no one was coming. Maybe Tabitha left for a walk?
I was really starting to panic and wasn’t sure what I was going to do when suddenly Tabitha opened the door and saved me. She had been dead asleep and since we have the double paned windows she didn’t hear me. She called Louie and by some miracle the meeting he was planning on attending was cancelled and since it was his day off, he was able to come back home. Yes he was planning on working on his day off again but this changed his mind.
Later in the afternoon I decided to go to my neighbors houses and ask them if they heard me screaming for help? I first went to my favorite neighbor’s right next door and they both said they didn’t hear me. I told them what was going on and asked that if they ever heard me pleading for help to please call 911 for me. I then went across the street and asked Don if he heard me. He said No, “but if I had I would have understood and left you alone”.
That is what I was worried about. Most of my neighbors know Tiara is abusive so they ignore it out of respect for me and our family. I explained that I was worried about being trapped outside with no help and if he saw her hurting me or me screaming for help, could he please call the police in the future. He thanked me for telling him since he wouldn’t have known to do that.
The problem with being stuck in the front of the house is that if I get myself free from her I can’t just leave her and run inside because she could wander into the street and get hit by a car.
So there it is, another day of violence. Waiting and praying for this phase to pass.
P.S. I have good news on the couch. A bunch of my readers urged me to call the manufacturer so I did and it has a 2 year warranty which is valid until November 11, 2013! I just made it and it looks like they will replace it for me. YAY! Thanks for the good idea, some times I need a little help with the simple stuff.
