Tomorrow afternoon (while mom and I prepare all day) I am checking myself into the hospital for dual diagnosis. I am clinically depressed have anxiety and suffer from add. On top of that I have been self medicating to be able to function
We have 3 small children all under 5 years old
Husband refuses to get help for alcoholism. I have been emotionally and mentally abused by him (kids have witnessed) and only one time our fight got to the physical point (kids also witnessed). They now say to strangers that daddy beat up mommy.
It is awful here and my boys are suffering. I am ready to end that suffering. I am getting the help I need (kids are going to moms while I am away because drunk hubby is incapable of caring for them because he is always drunk.
I have a wonderful family and huge support system-hubby does not.
My concern is me and the kids coming home to a sober environment. I need him gone and want the kids. I really do not want to get social services involved but I will, that is how passionate I am for making this right for my boys. Tell me, how do I get him out? How do I get him some help (oh we have already done the rehab thing for him). I want peace for me and my kids. A new loving sober happy life.
