Hi, I have only shared a handful of times about my difficult situation with my husband who has problems with drink and drugs, and I have 2 small children. As you can imagine I have been through some horrible times in this situation. I generally got some lovely kind words from people who understood how I felt. I recently revisited the website and saw 2 people had sent responses mentioning online drs who had prayed or made spells to help there families, against my better judgement and at a real desperate moment I emailed the addresses they gave imagining how lovely it would be if this was true and they could help me too, I enquired how it works and I got responses asking for some info and a pic and my number , I was so down at that moment that I emailed back, then they said they require me to pay for items, I asked how much, it was too much for me to afford so I said I was not able to carry on. One of them keeps calling me and emailing saying it was a matter of my happiness and I need to send him the money even if I have to sell something, I'm getting scared now, I have tried to be polite and say I can't afford it. With everything else going on in my life living with an addict I can't take this extra stress, does anyone have any advice on what I should do.
