      Not so bad during, but afterwards... yikes! No pain, no gain. :( 

  4. Ways to annoy your PTA:

    Me:  What number is your pain today?  (We use a zero to ten scale)

    Patient launches into a five minute explanation about what kind of pain they are having, where it is, what causes it, and how it affects their sleep, work, relationships and every single aspect of their lives.  

    Me:  Okay, that's great information.  But what number is your pain?

    Patient:  Oh, I don't know.  Pain is so hard to describe.

    Me:  :facepalm:

      How do you think your patient would describe their pain if they knew you were rehashing that moment in a public venue?

      @Ron I'll be sure to relay your concern to them.

    Thank you. I loved writing the characters in this one, but a lot of people found Sarah's situation and Grant's handling of it hard to deal with. Which is okay, because people in abusive relationships have a hard time leaving them, which is frustrating for those who are close to them. Elliot and Grant, unfortunately, got caught up in Jim's abusive behavior, as you pointed out. Thank you for the comment!

    The story that you shared about your friend is very sad but also very common, based on what I have heard from other people (and her MIL sounds horrible. I can't imagine leaving someone who is abusive and having them track me back down because their mother told them where I was). It can be extremely frustrating trying to help someone who is in an unhealthy relationship. Thank you for reading and for such an insightful comment, I really do appreciate it.

    Thank you! Grant figured out a good solution for his sister, but it was too little and too late for Elliot. They are both very stubborn men, but love and forgiveness does a lot in a relationship, as you pointed out. I'm glad you enjoyed it and thanks for commenting!

    Thank you very much for the kind words! I think the communication between Elliot and Grant was their Achilles' heel...all of the things you mentioned were spot on. You make a good point, but I'm not quite sure if Elliot revealing Sarah's location would have helped...Jim attacked him as soon as he walked through the door and is obviously unhinged. I'm glad you like the story and especially the characters. Thank you for commenting and reviewing!

    Thank you. I loved writing the characters interactions in this (well, except for Jim) and I like hearing what other people think of them. I'm so glad you enjoyed it and thank you so much for commenting!

    I'm not saying there is anything wrong with your point of view, just that I have a different one. But I love hearing the different ways readers react to the characters and the choices they make in the story, so thank you for sharing your opinion and I hope that you continue to do so. And I certainly don't mind talking about abuse in relationships. It is sadly common and something that I think should be talked about.

    I wanted to respond to a few things you pointed out. Cassie did not write about Sarah feeling sympathy, guilt, or remorse. That doesn't mean Sarah didn't feel those things, but many times, anger and resentment are easier emotions to handle and like Thorn pointed out in another comment, victims tend to defend their abusers. Perhaps the blame for this is on me, because I did not explore her feelings enough near the end. I did not mean to indicate that Grant has had a problem setting boundaries with Sarah for his entire life. Elliot and Grant set a perfectly reasonable boundary. Don't tell your crazy boyfriend where you are staying and obviously don't have your crazy boyfriend over to our house. She chose to violate that boundary to continue to see her abuser. I understand why she did it, but she was still in the wrong. Therefore, Elliot was 100% in the right not to allow her to stay there. Grant was choosing to prioritize his sister's safety, also understandable, but by allowing her stay in their home again, he was also violating that boundary based on past behavior. Elliot is quite good at setting boundaries. Grant, not so much, and definitely not where his sister is concerned. If Grant and his sister do reconcile, setting boundaries is something he'll have to learn. Sarah's behavior was very frustrating, which seems to be a common sentiment with people who have loved ones in unhealthy relationships, but I would put most of the blame on Jim for being a horrible, abusive, and manipulative monster.

    There are people who wouldn't be able to forgive Grant or give him another chance. I think a lot of it depends on the type of person, like you say, their relationship and how far they are willing to go. Thank you for reading and commenting!
