It was now 1983 and by then she had divorced from her second husband and she had forgotten all about those visions. Though that for a while after the breakdown she tried to figure out what she had seen, by 1983 she had given up trying to decipher what she foresaw in 1974, and she didn’t even think about it anymore.
Yet, nearing the end of that period of utter darkness and despair which she foresaw in 1974, and around the middle of 1983 when the roof cave in and she ran, she came to understand all those things that she had seen during those three days in which she had lost her mind back in 1974.
For the roof of her world’s castle began to cave in around July of 1983 and she panicked and ran about two months later, when she realized that her whole castle was tumbling down around October of 1983.
To begin with, her youngest daughter and her son-in-law were supposed to buy Thia’s house because Thia could not meet the mortgage payments.
Thia was awfully glad when the loan was approved for them to buy the house—around July.
But, to Thia’s utter disbelief, her son-in-law backed off the deal, and Thia was caught with three mortgage payments behind. Such was the first stage of the cave in!
At the time Thia was working for a pittance in Mr. Coo’s neighborhood bar. But in a desperate attempt to make money to catch up with the mortgage payments she switched work to a barroom that offered her more money.
Then she went back to work her Real Estate License plus she got a part-time job in a fabric store.
For Thia was desperately trying to make money not only to pay her mortgage payments but also for her car payments as well because she was also late with those; but it was too late.
There was no way to catch up with so much back-up. She was running herself to insanity and in vain.
And so, around the end of September or perhaps October of 1983 Thia decided to get roommates and work hard on Real Estate to make enough money to take care of the mortgage and the car payment without losing her sanity.
So, she quit the barroom altogether and the part-time job at the fabric store to dedicate herself to Real Estate completely.
