when my daughter was nearly one her father came to me and told me he had a drug problem. with much shock i told him dont worry we can get through this. he went to the doctor. and was diagnosed with bipolar. everyone chalked it up to self medication. so he was on the bipolar meds for a bit. but stopped. started leaving at night when she was asleep. and being out till 3am. A friend of ours got money stolen and accused him. Of course he denied it. but later admitted to it when i found straws cut in his wallet with residue. So sorry he relapsed and wont do it again. Year later. Same thing. My money goes missing. Confront him. He admits relapse. Gets help from a clinic. Couple years go by. Money goes missing again. I had enough. Kick him out. WE are done. he can not see his child. Leaves for rehab in flordia for three months comes back sober and tan. gets a job, a new gf, a car, we do split custody. Year exactly later and recently. Loses his gf, loses his job. admits to relapse when our daughter was asleep. Back in rehab. Like when is enough. enough!? i commend him for fighting for his daughter but she is now six and this has been going on her whole life. I have a full time job, car, and trailer by myself. I am so lost? he tries to get help but cant keep clean? i worry about her safety and think he should have little to NO time with her! but i am scared of repercussions!!!
