‘’Thanks for the support’’ I tell him on the message system. He didn’t get the sarcasm. He approached the administrator of the chat group to readmit me. Looks like I was going to be made to wait, made to realise my place. Yeah. Right.

Besides …

It’s the same group where I picked up a stalker. At first I thought I was dealing with a scammer, that’s what everyone said. One’s phone no is out there, anyone can use and abuse it. In my case it looks like it’s the latter.

So …

I asked to remain free from the group. To please tell the administrator. ‘’I will do so, thanks’’ after I explained about the stalker. I didn’t say about being made to wait. It would’ve sparked a chat about my place, my lack (of patience, subservience). There are other women on the group. I’m the only one who is alone, who had much to say, every day.

Then …

still surprised –
the lack of insight
so pervasive
