What a week of... I'm not sure of what...sort of highs and lows I guess. The situation with my sister flared up again and was horribly upsetting.Then I took part in a student demonstration, and finally I attended an lgbt society meeting!!
Well my sister's boyfriend is still obsessivly trying to force himself into my life. The whole thing is far too long to type out here.But to shorten it down he became quite vicious and menacing with me the other day.Well that is how I felt anyway.My sister seems to think I am misunderstanding him. At this point I realise the situation is too big for me to sort out on my own. So I have applied to make an appointment with a counsillor at my college to discuss it.Hopefully it will help. The whole thing is really dragging me down, and I hate that it is also dragging my friends down too when they are around me.
On the positive side of things right now, I attended a protest with thousands of other college students in Ireland against the re-introduction of fees on third level education. It is not something I would ever do really. But I am so glad I did. It is something I believe in and it was empowering to feel apart of something.
I think I was spurred on from my buzz of the protest to actually make myself go to my lgbt meeting. I was so nervous about it. I went and sat down really early where I knew the group was meeting so I would have less opportunity to run away. Eventually some people started to arrive then. I felt terribly uncomfortable for about 10 minutes and then I sort of settled into it. I chatted briefly to a couple of people, I think they could tell I was kind of nervous. But now I have broken the ice I think it will be easier to keep going!
Anyways I think thats all I have to report now.
