lost everyone to drugs
Posted by joles on 14 April 2014.
i lost my marriage of 20 yrs to cocaine and ecstasy, husband chose that stuff over his 3 children and myself. drugs and trying to be a dj was his true love of his life. been divorced now 10 yrs , he is still at it, now hes out of prison , drug dealing is what he done time for, hes back in his kids lives, they think hes god because they are all doing mkat and addicted to it. ive tried to help them but they tell me to drop dead basically, i work 2 jobs,looked after my mum of 85 yrs old with cancer,shes in a residential nursing home now, i work from 8am till 7pm 5 days a week, my partner and i are so unhappy at home as ive got my 2 sons living at home still, they wont contribute to their upkeep at home, spend all on drugs and alcohol, ive exhausted every option to have them removed out of my house, been to police, counsellors etc, and they dont care. my eldest son told me that i need to have petrol poured on me and set on fire. im the one that doesnt do drugs, has an occasional drink and works hard so does my partner, but we live in fear and anxiety. we are so desparate to have a normal life and be happy. it seems no matter where we turn for help,we hit a brick wall. sons ages are 26 and 18, my daughter is 25 and has 2 girls, my ex lives with her and her husband and kids. yes, the are all on mkat and cocaine too. im so worried bout the kids, i have them when i can, but they cant escape the horrible drug atmosphere even when i have them as ive got it at my house with the 2 sons living here. most days i feel so anxious and depressed, scared stiff and so full of dread. i hate leaving my house but i hate comming back to the house after work. my work colleuges are so supportive and try and help but even they are running out of options to try and help. does anyone understand how i feel? i love my kids and dont want to turn my back on them, i want to help them. i just want my lovely kids back how they used to be. i just want them to be safe and happy in life. thank you for letting me unload my problems, it has helped me to feel a bit better.
