It’s difficult to focus 100% on work when there is a lot going on in your personal life. You know that I sometimes mention that I receive threats. It’s something that comes and goes, and it has been that way for some years now. I am going through one of those tough periods now. Last Friday night when I was at the ice hockey match, I received a call from the security company I work with telling me that a situation had occurred. So, before I picked the kids up on Saturday, we had to go through my safety routines. I have a secure home, an alarm system and at times I have a guard with me. I might as well be open about it because when we are dealing with something else than just the “regular weirdo”, I want them to know that I am the wrong person to mess with.
I have had a hard time focusing since last Friday, it’s inhumane to live under circumstances like these. It’s a stress that permeates everything I do and it makes me distracted and easily annoyed. The kids are with their dad, I have company at home this week and I work closely with the security company. We are doing all that we can right now. I can’t just take a break and go on a trip somewhere, and I don’t want to. I have companies to run and I must be allowed to do that. But, if the blog posts are somewhat less personal right now, you know why. I am doing my best. Sometimes I wonder how much a person can cope with, if it’s not a divorce, it’s someone that wants to hurt me.
