I really get this, especially the part about her pretending everything's okay. It's strange how someone can just... yell horrible things at you for hours and then ask to go to the store the next day with you. Same thing with the nightmares, I won't go into too much depth so it doesn't feel like I'm just venting at you, but I get very vivid ones sometimes and have a severe case of sleep paralysis - most likely due to living here. I'm really happy to hear that you got out of that situation, and that you're doing much better for yourself now. I'm glad you didn't die either, and I really appreciate you taking the time to share. Thank you! I hope things continue uphill for you, and this means a lot to me.
