I haven't been around a whole lot this past week because of some things that I found out, and have been trying to deal with, but am at my wits end about, and just have no clue what to do, or if I can actually do anything. If anyone has any advice I would be greatly appreciative for what you can give me. And if anyone knows if I can actually do anything about it I would be very appreciative in knowing. This past January I went through an extremely nasty break up with my ex. And I thought that I had gotten over it all and was actually beginning to smile again for just me, and not just for my daughter. But what I found out this past week has changed that once again. I found out this last Tuesday that my ex has been grilling my neighbors about who I am living with, if I am living with someone. He has been asking htem if I am seeing anyone, where I am working, what I do, who I talk with, who watches my child (and no, my little girl is not his) and basically about any and every aspect of my life. Now, I do not know most of my neighbors extremely well, but I do know some of them, as did he. He also knew other neighbors of mine that I did not know, nor would I have spoken to them to get to know them. But it is the ones that I do know that have told me about him grilling them to try and find out this stuff about me. I have also found out from people that are close friends that he has been trying to get this information from them as well. It makes me feel like I can't have a life anymore. It is also making me feel unsafe in my own home. Now this is the tricky part, and the part where I am unsure of what I can do. Since our break up he has moved back to Australia because his mother got sick. His mother and father and I have always been good friends. And since our breakup I have stopped contacting them because I didn't want a problem like this to arise and him say that I am stalking him, or anything like that. But the reason that I know he is back in Australia is because his father sent me an email about a month ago telling me that my ex was moving back there because his mother was sick and had been admitted to the hospital. I replied to the my ex's father and sent his wife my best wishes and told him to give her a huge hug and kiss for me and to let him know that she was in my prayers. I even asked him to please not email me again because I did not want to cause problems in their family seeing as their son and I were split up now. Anyway, I got an email from my ex's mother Monday letting me know that she was out of the hospital and in it she mentioned that her son is going to stay in Australia now, and that he is once again working for the company that he used to work for. She also said something else that didn't make sense at the time, but now does. She said that people around me weren't as trustworthy as I thought and that I may want to take action, and that whatever I did both she and her husband supports it 100%. Then on Tuesday I find out that he is keeping tabs on me, or at least trying. I don't know what to do. I don't know if there is a way to press charges against him for stalking. And if there is, would it just be my word against his without hard proof? Can it even be done with him now in Australia nad me here in the US? Hell, I don't even know what laws there are in Australia about this kind of thing. All I know is that I don't even feel comfortable in my own home after finding this stuff out. Any advice?
