I am doing okay with my kids and my exhusband but just when he is upset he seems to take out his angry in rants that are unhealthy. I think he does this with everyone though and its not about me and him. I learned that its not my place to control this or micromanage him anymore. Drawing that boundary is hard. Especially because we have kids and I want my kids to see two healthy happy parents always. I guess I could drop some hints to his wife in a the most non accusatory fashion...she seems rational and sympathetic.
thanks for your note. write me anytime
Thank you very much. This website has already helped me out a lot. Thanks again.
Hi, I didn't realize you were leaving my posts! Sorry im not too familar with how to use this. That was very nice of you. It's a roller coaster. I did call police and he was arrested and to have no contact with me. But now im home alone hating my job, then coming home with no one to talk to. I miss him alot, it's so hard being alone right now. I get treated like crap at work, at least he made me feel better when i came home, now i'm just alone going through so much. I wish I could take it all back, i dont want to go to court. I dont want to testify, i dont care whether he gets convicted or not. Its like being re-victimized, going through court, having to tell my friends and work. I work in law enforcement so I had to disclose all
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. Take care and have a lovely life
Hi looking forward to your need message
Thanks dear.......appreciate it. Hugs :))
Thanks for the special note. It's hard to imagine myself going away from my friends here, like you and other wonderful human beings! I help myself in trying to help others. I love you all and really hope and pray for a wonderful, beautiful life ahead for all of us. I hope to get stronger, I am here and I hope to continue being here, until I can. I hope to stay here, to share my issues or success firsthand with all of you. Learned so much here, still learning. And I hope for the best. Take Care. Have a Beautiful Day ahead!
Thank you Liz, for posting the link for the HPV vaccines ~ excellent idea!!!
Thank you for everything!
Thank you Liz, I'm glad someone as nice as you is here for people to vent to. <3
i hate being married to an addict! I hate how irrational n impatient he is with me! I hate our lack of communication, I hate knowing I love him sober, I hate him snoring next to me because he only snores when he drinks and smokes, which is pretty much nightly. I hate being married to an addict! I hate it I hate it I hate it!
Thank you ma'am, your feedback and advice I believe is absolutely spot on and I could not express more gratitude from all of the feedback that has been given. God Bless you and your family.
great post you sent reaching out to the mom who was in the cabin with her daughter trying to detox. Such compassion n sincerity in your post. And honesty to the nth degree I loved it! Congrats on your successes friend!
Hello my friend! I'm dying with this pain that my son is giving me. Can't take it any longer I need some help. I just feel like goin far way
Thanks for the note. We're just starting this journey of recovery and appreciate your insight and friendship.
Thanks for the lovely note Liz! Keep motivating, Keep Inspiring. Great to see your optimism and confidence. I wish you and your family great health. May you all find peace and happiness in your life. I am sure that the new year has lots of good news for us in store and we are going to make it great.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hope you are doing well. Friendship is priceless.
Thank you, I hadn´t replied sooner because I was overwhelmed with the whole situation, I really appreciate your support.
Thank you. One day at a time. I went to an NA meeting and was impressed by how hard it is for so many addicts. I think I will keep going.
Hi Liz. I am new to this site and finding my feet but I will see if I can work out how to put up a tracker.
Thank you for your kind words.
Just a quick note to say hi!
Thank you and Sorry for the late reply.
Thanks for asking me in..I'm new to this system. I haven't been on this site, since trying to establish my own business and getting ill, been busy. Thanks for your nice words, unfortunately things got worse. I got very ill due to the stress of my BF and his sons issues..we are no longer speaking. I am taking one day at a time, trying to be on my own. I'm ok just want to be well..My heart issue (AFIB) has been so much better since I am not with him. He just didn't understand giving me stress over his son was not helping my illness..
I have been doing a lot of research and discover my bf is definitely Bipolar and Narcissist. Wow was it enlightening to discover that..its all made tons of sense now..
Just a quick note to say hi! I don't know what it is but everything seems to be working this time. One whole month. This would have been entering my 13th year of heavy drinking.. instead the 13th will be my first of the sober years. :-) My next milestone will be 90 days and hopefully one day I won't even worry about milestones, it will be just a healthy life:-). How are you? Love, Dagmar
:-):-):-) So many days and no empty bottles in my trash... I feel like I can go on like this for good. It will work out. I wasn't ready to give it up before, all those times I've tried to quit.. I'm ready now. I'm really looking forward my all women's meeting on Tuesday night. Last time there were all gentlemen in their 60s. It was nice though and they pointed out all the other groups for me. You're my inspiration. You made it for 16 years, raised your wonderful boy and going strong, I will too.
Lots of love to you and your family:-).
The effort and time and words you sent my way changed my life. I already know. It's fragile at this point but I know. 19 days without a drink, one closed meeting up my sleeve and information about more groups in my pocket. Today I felt like the person I used to be. I felt happy for all the right reasons. Liz, I'm gonna make it this time. I can't even believe it is happening... Breaking free from the mess.
I just wanted to thank you for not only your advice and help, but also for offering to pray for me. Prayer is a very powerful thing and I find great comfort in knowing that someone is praying for my healing. You're amazing!
Thanks a lot,
I really appreciate your support. I've been struggling for quite some time, it even became so bad that I couldn't sleep anymore because of those thoughts and memories I had. I started shaking and I drunk a lot of water in the hope I would become calm. ( it didn't help a lot ). I'm starting school tomorrow and I feel like I could break down every moment. I really don't have much energy left. I have to make a decision and quick other wise I could really become very sick of it.
Still writing this post and getting support of the community really helps me getting thru this. So thanks again
Thanks for your friend request and your amazingly helpful advice and comments about what turns out to be a non-problem for me. Compared to the more real and important issues other people deal with, I'm really lucky and should count my blessings instead of inventing problems that I guess don't exist. But without your words and the insight other women also provided, I wouldn't know this. Can't thank you enough. What a weight lifted from my shoulders. I feel energized and renewed!
Thank you, Liz. Congratulations to you. It's incredible what you've achieved.
