I didn''t want to revive my "Rottweiler attacked me" thread just because it''s a negative thread and I''m not feeling negative at all!


I just wanted to thank you all again, for all your advice, thoughts, prayers, nice notes, legal advice and support!

I''m actually at home now. I''ve stayed alone a couple of days, then my BF came for the weekend, then Sunday I was alone and last night a friend stayed with me....but I''m ok!. I feel that by coming home I got stronger, I ''faced'' them and showed them I''m not going to let them intimidate me anymore!. Yes, there is still a thread because they''re not "nice" people...and they''re still @$#holes, but I''ve come to realize that it''s something I can live with. We have ran into each other but nobody has spoken a word. I have seen the dog but he is wearing a muzzle (at least the times I saw him). I actually almost ran into the guy and the dog yesterday in the parking lot, but I saw them and stopped until they got father away (he saw me stopping and staring at them, but he just walked away!)

I''m being extra careful but I''m not stopping my life. I got into the habi of using my house alarm everyday (I didn''t use to do it) and I should be getting my pepper spray in the mail soon. I didn''t get a nice little .5oz key chain spray...I got a big 2oz bottle
and I will use it if I need to!.

So I know it''s still a long way to recover and this is not even near at the end....but I''m feeling like "I''m back"!


Thank you all and big hugs!

M~

Excellent!
Glad you're feeling better. Maybe those people wrote themselves a reality check and realized that they couldn't possibly win the case in court.

Thanks!!!!


Life goes on....and I''m the only one that can decide to get up and go and not sit around every day dwelling on what happened!

The other day I went to a friend''s house and her dog jumped right on me! (without knowing me)...I wasn''t scared at all!!!...I gave him all the hugs and kisses I normally would have given to a cute furry little one!.


And who knows what the future holds! maybe pretty soon I''ll be too busy planning a wedding that I will really forget all about this! hehe

Thanks you all!

You would all be so proud of me!. My neighbors (purposely or maybe not) walked their rott at exactly the same time as I was walking my dog. So I ran into them and we weren''t more than 15ft'' away...and I didn''t freak!...woo-hoooo!. Yes, I did get a little tingle in my stomach, but I just walked away like they weren''t even there!

I really am doing so much better and I believe one of the things that helped me was all of you letting me know that what I was feeling was ok!. I think sometimes we are too hard on ourselves and we don''t think we should be feeling one way or the other. Once you come to terms with what you feel and why then you can start to have some control over it.

I''m still seeing the therapist tomorrow one more time...and I''m going on a weekend spiritual retreat in March. Back home I used to do retreats all the time and I haven''t done one forever, so I''m excited!

Hugs,

M~

Thanks!!!!!


We have an all day meeting at the office!...yikes!...hopefully I won''t break into a happy dance then, but I can''t control myself! It''s kind of like Ellen in her talk show, she just has to dance at the beginning of the show...well, I have to dance, but it''s more like every couple of hours! hehe
