I've been a big fan of the word gregarious for a long time. One of my favorite words? Hubris.

You will have to be straight up and just say -- "Your presence is not welcome anymore. Do not call. Do not invite us over. Do not step in my yard." If she ask why KISS (Keep it Simple S....). I know, this was crazy long winded. I think...

So I don't have any real answers, just a sympathetic hug. It was actually a steak...

Upon meeting this family (theirr dd was about 18 months than) they seemed like the nicest people you could know: outgoing, generous, friendly, helpful. And they seemed (seemed being the operative word) kinda crunchy (mom was still nursing, co-sleeping, etc.). We struck up a neighborly friendship.

It's hard to read books and things about suicide b/c they all seem geared to people that have had normal relationships--I haven't really found one that dealt with suicide after an abusive relationship and the feelings that it entails. I do wish...
