I was a Clinic Manager for 4 years till it came to a sudden end 6 months ago. I will not disclose why in the likely event I will come across as bitter and twisted, which no doubt I am bordering on. So what does an unemployed workaholic, unhappily married mother of two do? I had my first and only affair after 30 years, became emotionally involved with a man I had no right to (yes, I am a Scarlet Woman too) and went on a cruise with my pay off, with a girlfriend and young son to sort out my head. Unfortunately I was on unsuitable medication which resulted in me displaying signs of bi-polar, including spending money on extravances I could ill-afford. I was in no mood for doing anything other than socialising, sunning myself and generally having fun. When the holiday ended 2 weeks later, I was still unsure if and how I was going to leave. It was a quick decision once home though. My husband was resistant, even when I told him of my unfaithfulness. He finally relented and within the month I secured a spacious 2 bed flat in Suburbia and that is where I am now. How do I support myself you may wonder? Well I have savings that are quickly running out, but irresponsibly expect something will come up sooner or later. I should add that my husband is not a bad man or anything; in fact he provided for me and our two children well for 30 years. Emotionally? Well, that's another story,
During my affair I began writing poetry for my own amusement. It has now evolved into an autobiography in rhyme and I have had interest from one or two sources. Who knows? I had little education as was moved so often from schools as I was a disruptive pupil. I think the beginning of my book shows promise, with the middle being a bit crap and the third part best of all. The crap will be edited out and rewritten. I have been told I have talent by my 'not my agent' who says it should be published (first and only who has read it in its entirety), but I need to know what 'you' think. Am I 'delusional' to believe I will be ? Update on 24/1/13 - yes, it is very likely I am delusional; the 'interest' turned out to be 'self-interest'. Check out my diary posts, 'My Not My Agent', and all will become clear.
Just in case I have not illustrated myself well enough here - how about this?
