Gail — You hit the nail on the head. It is a tyranny!!! I think a lot of women deal with this and there has to be a way to make them see what they are doing to us.
I will carry on and hope that I will also be able to find a way to change this situation. I cannot continue to arrive at my destination physically and psychologically “shattered” as you put it so succinctly.
Thanks for reading and responding. ♥
