I had a dream years ago that I was standing on the outside watching my family having fun with strangers and I couldn't get in with them no matter what I did. Someone else was there, in my place. In the dream, I didn't belong there. It was like I was watching someone else live my life, in my home, with my family.
I dreamed that dream for months almost every night.
I separated from my spouse a few years ago. All my personal possessions are still in the house, we didn't legally separate, no division of assets at all. Last year, he moved his girlfriend into our house. She won't let me on my own property. I have to watch her enjoy the usage of my things, my lawn swing that I bought and put together myself. My truck sits in the back yard, my female lab runs around the yard. She still comes when I call her, but Pam will stop her if she is home. My son takes pics on his camera of home, yard, whatever, and I am not allowed to look through my own sons camera at the photos.
They changed the interior of the house without checking with me. I say 'no' to a change, and they do it anyway. She does everything I used to do, and I mean everything. The only thing that is different is her name. I feel like I am watching someone else live my life.
