It's like clouds left the sky when a stressful thing starts to go away. After a talk with an attorney, I discovered that I had not been sued after all. This company said that they had done so, and I was fooled by all the paperwork. That is the weirdest thing I have ever heard of: a law firm claiming they'd filed but they haven't. I commented to my attorney that it seems like lawyers do a lot of just scaring people. He agreed.
Now I can breathe easy. And go do other work. And straighten out my mind.
And maybe take a trip to the storage unit and get a load of junk out. I plan to drop off as much as I can at Goodwill right nearby.
