I made it here to the historic Cripple Creek Courthouse for my child support modification hearing.
My stomach is a mess. This is such a beautiful old building, but it holds lots of really bad memories. I walked up the same stairs where two years ago I ran into my former Mother-In-Law & several women who I had considered friends.
I am reminding myself that I am here today for nothing more than to get the courts okay to stop writing that child support check to him every month.
I am breathing in deeply & trying to remember to exhale. I want to change my feeling about this building and hope I will leave today not scared to defend my rights.
My ex just walked in, saw me and found an area around the corner to sit. 15 minutes until court begins.
