I moved back with my ex-husband 3 years ago. My ex is an alcoholic and my son has issues with aggression, depression, and is possibly bi-polar. At this point I don't think I can repair any damage either have done to the family. My son is disrespectful and in trouble with the law. Both have to be right and have the last word. My ex has destroyed every relationship in his own family with his drinking and blames everyone for his behavior. I keep trying to go forward and get over the past, both will not let it go. It gets better for a while and then one of them triggers the other and we are right back to yelling, screaming, and getting physical and my ex telling my son to get out and he is a piece of shit and always will be. My son explodes all over his Dad and brings up every thing my ex has done and. I am in the middle with issues of my own with my ex. I am blamed for taking sides and both demand that I take their side or I'm out of their lives or I get yelled at for defending my son and I am told to take him and leave. I have no money and I can't get an apartment due to my poor credit. I do have a server job and the money is not good. I have to go to work and worry about what is about to happen at home. It is affecting my job performance and I just want to make everyone see we can be a family without all this drama. I feel like a hostage and I am terrorized by both of them. My older son tells me I am to blame for always babying his brother and protecting him from their Dad. I need help for my entire family.
