  1. The Monster earned his GED in prison last month. Without thinking, my first reaction was positive. POSITIVE. I thought, "Oh that's wonderful! I am so prou-" When I realized the word proud was coming I stopped short. I realized it wasn't Vasquez that I was thinking of. He is gone. The sweet kid I taught and loved is gone. He is now The Monster and I was sick to my stomach. How on earth could I forget? Even for a second?? Why would my mind EVER remember who he used to be before he terrorized and tore my life to shreds?

      Amy, he can earn his Ph. D. going forward. Still not going to change a single thing he did to you. Nor that his dark and sorry self is bound to rot in prison without ever again seeing the light of day.

      @EmptyInside Yes....thank you. It was a moment like that...just for a split second, I remembered the person he used to be. In case you don't know my story, I will just say that I am 12 years older than him. I taught him in church school and I loved him like a nephew. He did things with my now ex-husband and I, our church was like family, etc. He grew up, went the wrong way, and then came back into my life as an adult with a sick obsession that I had no clue of. He was 21 and I was 33 when he attacked me in my home with a gun and committed several felonies. I think you are right and thank you so much...my heart just wanted it to not be true...wanted to have compassion and wanted what I have always wanted...for him to succeed and not be like his family. I am still heartbroken not only over the horrific things he did but that it was HIM.

      @Capulet once again you have helped me :throb: Thank you. I will learn to see it like that instead of beating myself up as some kind of crazy person. Thank you so, so much for your words. I needed to hear them. 

      @Ian37 Thank you, friend. You're so right. 

      @Hawkgirl Yes...you're exactly right. Had he not been my monster, I would have been overjoyed and so proud of his success. I think I want desperately to be, but I can't because of what he did...I can't forget it. And I know I shouldn't. It's just so hard. Thank you so much for your kind words.
