I found out today that some people that have not been a part of my life in a long time have been reading this journal. Someone who took it upon herself to let my 18 year old daughter know that I talked of her in MY journal. I have said before I do not use my journal often to air my dirty laundry and when I do speak of issues with different people in my life that are having problems, or that I think are making bad choices I do not go into alot of detail.
I use this as a venting space and will not keep this journal public anymore after tomorrow. I would like to know how and why another 18 year old daughter of a ex of one of our best friends feels she can read MY stuff and share it with anyone, let alone to stir up trouble with my daughter!! I guess I do remember now that back when my daughter was sick the ex I am speaking of did send me a email because she had read on my journal that she was in the hospital (which I appreciated but never responded to) but at that time over a year ago it never dawned on me that she would share that with her daughter who is the same age as ours, nor did it dawn on me that a year later they are still reading it. I would have went private a long time ago had I have known.
If any of you want to keep reading this main journal of mine please leave me a comment and let me know so that I can make sure to add you to my list. Otherwise I will go private and see what happens. For the time being no new names will be added to my list of approved people to read. I will only allow those of you that have commented regular to be added. I have heard to many stories of lurkers that somehow find their way in even when they go private. It will not happen to mine. I only have a few regular readers and you will be the ones able to come to my private journal.
Thanks much Drea & Angie for making something that truly was a place I could vent and turning into something I have to hide!
I am sorry if this entry sounds really bitchy but I am frustrated! I do not like getting unexpected emails from my daughter who is half way across the country letting me know she had "Read what I wrote about her". I have enough drama in my real life and REFUSE to get involved in childish online drama.
I will close my journal and not come back before I start to deal with the online bullshit.
