oh and do not reply to the texts at all. that was hard for me- but don't reply. At all. disengaging is a good tool.
It's probably a really bad sign that even though I work full-time, I dread weekends with H, huh? - Page 2
So sorry you are oing through this. It actually took me about 3 years to finally go to a lawyer. Things would be good for a little while and then he would go back to his addictions. I would get him help - he woul be better for a little while then back to it again. I never saw myself as a divorced woman, but, it is better than living with a selfish addict! Best of luck. Save all the money you can - you will need it and stay positive. You need to do what's best for you and your kids!
thanks everyone. He's been good this week. Well - until I called him at work with the kids school schedule and asked which days he wanted to take off so I could arrange care. He started swearing and cursing and wondering why the schools had a 2 week break - partial before Christmas and partial after. It was so stupid. That kind of "help" I can do without. I really couldn't even tell if he was swearing about the school schedule or something else that was happening that moment at work. Nope - it was school schedule problem. I really do appreciate everyone's words of support and warning.
