I'm new to this forum, but not MDC. It's interesting I find myself here. I am on the verge of legal divorce. A very contentious one. My dh left last April. He left me with my two little homeschooled boys and moved a half hour away. He has continued to support us, although the boys had to go to school. And he will support me for a while longer while I get on my feet financially. Ex DH on the surface is a successful, outgoing 36 year old guy. Totally into city living, totaly "cool". However, he is diagnosed bi-polar, and unmedicated. He is completely unpredictable, has been on a manic high for awhile now, and I am concerned for my children's safety.
Last night my oldest ds who is 9 got mad at me and screamed "I can understand why Daddy left you bitch!" I am still reeling from this. He immediately freaked out and said he hates himself. This is directly after the first visit with dad since before the holidays. We just returned from a ten day trip to Colorado. We had a great time.
I've never in my life had him talk to me like that. It was chilling. It was then followed by my 7 year old telling me "daddy scares me."
I don't know what to do.
I don't even know where to start. The see him two overnights a week.
