Where to go from here ?
Posted by Mitch on 9 March 2014.
My life changed significantly 2 and a half years ago when I found my husband on the floor fitting. I was given the news that he had a major problem with alcohol, my first thought is "Where have I been? Why did not see or know about it?" so after this my husband went to rRehab and got sober and I made a promise to myself that if he was to do this again I would have to leave. Last night I could smell alcohol, he lied to me twice then told me truth, I am sitting her numb, if I talk to anyone I will be judged as to why I am still here and currently do not know what to do? Why do people like my husband always look like they have the upper hand? Why are we not enough for them to stop? How are partners suppose to carry on after this? I really don't think I can watch this unfold and live a life looking over my shoulder? But 16 years is a long time but really was most of that a lie ? Where to go from here?
