I finally did it! I started a discussion here a week ago asking whether you all thought people could drag you down. I had some fantastic responses and extremely good advice. Just to clarify, this man was a tenant in a house I rent from the owner. He was the only tenant. Following advice from good people on mylot, I asked him to go back to where he belongs, for a short while to reintroduce himself to his friends and neighbours, amongst whom he had lived for 15 years. For a moment (lets say 20 minutes) he was okay with this suggestion, then started to think, then took it very badly. He became violent, which I know he has in him, and I had to hide. Well, to cut a long story short, I took my mobile (cell phone), hid in the orange groves and called a friend and the police. He has gone, I hope permanently, my friend drove him 30km back up the mountain to his village and lets hope thats an end to it. There really isnt a question here. Just wanted to let you all know, its all okay now. Thanks to each and everyone who responded to my original cry for help!

Im glad you have seen this, I know you were there supporting me in my original posting and I appreciate the strength your support gave me. The only way this could recur is if I am stupid enough to feel sorry for him again, believe me that aint gonna happen. Thanks for your support, youve really helped.

That's okay. I have a friend which actually be in the same place with you. You're just remind me of her, and I wasn't able to help her and let her down. I don't want this happen to anyone else. Not you. Not in front of me. I am a little bit harsh in this kind of problems, I hope I didn't offend you in any way :) And I am now just very happy, your good news just made my day :)

Unfortunately I have not seen your original discussion but it is lucky that you had your phone to hand! You must have been quite frightened but at least you have it all sorted out now and you are OK!

I am okay, its taking a while to get back to what I would consider normal, I have to do things I didnt used to have to do (is that bad english or what?) Anyway, I think you get the drift and I thank you very much for your support. You know its almost as difficult doing it alone as it is with a violent person, its called re-adaption (I think.)

I wanted to thank you for picking up on this again. You responded to my first discussion about this and were supportive. Well, as you see, I did it. I have taken my life into my hands and hopefully things will start to improve as of now. Thanks for your support and good wishes. It gives me strength to make it happen.
