Hello to all
As my profile says, i am not new on ATS and have been a member for the past 2 years or so, yet had to restart the account, being offline for far
too long has made me forget many passwords!
My real name is Tessa, and in the past 7 months my life has been turned absolutely upside down..my home of nearly 4 years was robbed, the house
taken over by what is known here in the UK as 'chavs'..violence began shortly after and my partner and i ended up fleeing the property for our own
safety really and became homeless living in a van up until right before yuletide. During this time i was also going through a seperation, now a
divorce from my husband, so that only added to everything else! The violence previously mentioned turned to an older man nearby who apparently owed
the local drug dealer money. The teens who did it hospitalized the man, and he was lucky to have survived the ordeal..my partner and i were around the
scene at the time and were later questioned by the police to make a statement, but my partner ended up becoming the main witness to the incident. So
much for witness protection as promised by local authorities and the threats are becoming more and more serious. And everything has just gone into
The main point to this whole little story is that its amazed me how all of these issues over the past months, has made me realize quite a bit, about
the world around me and about myself..Through all the negatives thrown at us, its turned into more positives..i have learned that certain people are
unable to exist or have a happy life unless they are causing drama with those around them. As though they feed off of it, and my main guess is that
its mainly media induced..soaps alone seemingly show people drama and nosiness are a must have in this day and age, and thats all the reason most
people need. the tv condones it!.. An amazing species, man..
Anyhow, just wanted to catch up a bit for those friends i had here on my other account, and to meet those who have showed up while away
I hope everyones looking forward to Spring time finally arriving!!
