Second verse, same as the first

Well, there have been some "decisions" made recently. I didn't know about them, nor was I consulted about them, but Jack has been making decisions. He has decided he is done, he's done supporting me and the kids and getting nothing in return. So he took all the money out of the checking account and savings account, etc. and now he wants more out of life than "this." I asked him if he could tell me honestly, before we got married, the number of times he drank in front of me, or talked about drinking. He yelled to me, "Oh, so NOW I have a drinking problem, It's all my fault." That response told me volumes. He is so far in denial, he can't see the forest for the beers. Wow. I think I just have to sit here and wonder how anyone can function so far in denial. I'm not making any decisions right now, other than he can begin sleeping in the other room, and this time, I'm not trying to woo him back.


  1. I hope that you're taking care of yourself as best you can in this hard time, and I REALLY hope that you're safe in your home. Do you have a safety plan if you need it? Times like this can bring out all kinds of behaviour in people, even without alcohol.

    Thinking of you.

  2. Thank you so much - we are safe, or we would be gone. I do have a place we can go any time day or night, even dog friendly. I appreciate your caring. You don't know what it means. bless you

  3. I can NOT believe all that has changed since we were last in touch, Melissa. I feel just HORRIBLE. What can I do to help?!?!?!

    Hugs, Kat
