I have had a horribly volatile relationship with the father of my 2 kids (5 and 20 mos). We are currently divorced, but have gotten back together on and off for several years. This last "reconciliation" was initiated by me at the beginning of this year and really, I just figured I should get back together with him because he and his mother make my life miserable when we are not together (late for visitation, bitching about child support, taking the kids out of town without my knowledge, bad mouthing me to the kids, not letting me talk to the kids when they're over there, you name it, they've done it). After just a couple of months, though, I was really going crazy again. He is a pathological liar, and I recently found out he may have gotten a teenager pregnant while we were seperated. I was getting to the point of having suicidal thoughts and I started cutting myself. So I went to a psychiatrist and she put me on medication for manic depression. Long story short, he started an argument with me this weekend, I called the cops because he physically threw me out of the house, and they let him keep the kids for 3 nights because he told them I was on meds. He's not even supposed to have our baby overnight until she is 3 years old! But the minute the cops heard the word "psychiatric disorder" they sided with him. Now he's threatening to sue for full custody and declare me unfit. I have never hurt my children, and I am getting treatment for my depression, which only seems to hit me when I'm around him! I feel like I'm trapped in a nightmare! Does anyone out there have any advice or words of reassurance???
