When I wrote the last post, I was angry, obviously. I wish this was a hoax, I really do. But this is my life right now and it hurt for those people to rip me apart, but I’m over it.
After some consideration and reading your suggestions, I’ve decided to keep going. I need help for this and right now the Internet is my best resource.
I think I should start by addressing some of the comments that these “redditers” brought up: First, I never said that I thought my uncle was Jack the Ripper. It was the newspapers at the time that linked Alice Walsh to the Ripper, not me. The false panel in the trunk is true. Why would I make up something so absurd? The trunk is giving me nightmares now. And I am old enough for this whole thing to be playing out in real time, that’s why I’m freaked. I have a reunion coming up and I’m not sure what I’m going to say when it’s my turn to toast..
BTW, can someone explain what trolling is? And viral marketing? As for the Wikipedia, I did not make the entries, and the person that did apparently got banned or something. I can barely figure out WordPress.
I am not trying to fool anyone and I appreciate all the support and feedback you’ve given. I am going to contact NYC again, they’ve been giving me the runaround for a while but I’m not giving up.
I found this article about the Alice Walsh in my trunk contents.
