Do you think that everyone has that gut feeling that tells you, no don't do it, or danger, fear? I was raised with a lot of very important things un said or understood. The age of non information. Well any way this is why I bring this up.

I guess I was about 10 years old and I was so skinny, I was a stick figure. I was walking to the white cross drug store where I would get an ice cream soda. They had a soda counter with a jerk in those days. It was about 10 or 12 blocks from our house. I used to walk to the drug store all the time. On this trip to the store I was just walking along and I noticed a car that had been by before and went by again. Still not worried I went on to the drug store and got my ice cream soda when I was finished with the soda, I would go sit on the stacks of magazines and read the latest movie magazine, there in the store.

I finished the magazine and was walking home, here comes the same car driving by slowly. I was getting a little feeling in the pit of my stomach. I had never felt that before but it was a yucky feeling. I kept walking and he kept passing by one way and then the other ,as I walked home. Finally I was about 2 blocks from my street and that same car was parked at the curb right before my street. There was no house there that he might visit. I didn't want to go past the car, so I knew the people on the street behind our house and decided to turn up that street. I walked past the house and up to the corner to see if the street was clear for me to go home. The same car was parked at the curb. I would have to pass him to get home. I backed up and by then I was afraid. The feeling in my gut was really big and yucky. I knocked on Miss Beason's door. She opened the door and I ran in her house right past her. She said " Goodness Sharon what's the matter" so I told her my problem and asked her to call my mom. Mom came and She calmed me down . She said I was all right now, and that I did the right thing. The police came and of course the car was gone. I could not tell the police what make the car was or what the driver looked like. I knew it was a white man, younger than my dad. That was all I really knew. It was not enough to go on.

I was not really sure what I was afraid of then, but that yucky feeling in my gut let me know it was not good. In the years that followed I had that feeling several times. Once an old man at the movies, asked me for a kiss and that feeling came again. I told the usher and he through the old man out. I did not tell my mom 'cause she would not have let me go to the movies anymore. When I was a teen and went to the drive in movies, a boy wanted to do more than I did. I was forceful with he about it. That was the gut feeling again.

Maybe some people don't have that gut feeling to alert them when it's a bad thing or dangerous to do something. What do you think?

Well, That's it for now..see you soon?

Yes, I've had these experiences too - and run away successfully. It's when the gut feeling is about people you know that it becomes confusing. Abuse is difficult to escape and it happens to people in all walks of life from non-strangers.

I try to listen to my gut...it's always right but sometimes I don't pay attention to it and typically end up regretting it. Funny how this inner mechanism works...wonder how? Glad it does. Thanks for sharing, Sharon.
