Five Weeks (mostly whine)

It’s been five weeks since my plan for this year was upended. I’m trying to avoid falling into an abyss of despair, and that’s using up most of my spoons.
We’re fortunate in that we have been given a waiver on the 28 days of emergency temporary accommodation.

This post may ramble. It’s a post in which I hope to include everything, and my thoughts aren’t entirely clear on much at the moment. Because I have too many things to think about, I might try break this up into sections.
I am immensely grateful for the support that we’ve received.

Why? is the Reason

When I was a child, I would hear a lot of things like this: “Stop being so precocious” or “You’re being a know-it-all. People don’t like it when people are like that.” Now that I’m older, I hear a lot of things like this: “Stop being so high and mighty” and “You think you’re better than everyone else”.

Text says: What they don't tell you... White text over an image of a brown poster with the quote Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

What they don’t tell you…

You’ve probably seen this quote on various images:

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

Recently, I created my own image with that quote on it. I needed to remind me that the people who mind who I am don’t matter.

Text says: I said NO! The word no looks like it's been painted with green paint while the rest of the text is in black. A paintbrush is on the right of the image.

I said NO!

I have an exam on Thursday, but I’m struggling to concentrate because I’m experiencing an issue with someone who seems unwilling to respect basic boundaries.
I’m going to summarise what has happened to date. I’m doing this, in a public post on my site, because I’m starting to feel as though my perception of reality is being distorted.
