I am so sad
Yesterday I stumbled across the fact my husband is an addict. He’s admitted it and I’ve found out he’s spent £4200 since Dec on cocaine.
I have been supporting him with what I thought was depression and a major breakdown. It wasn’t at all. It was a huge drug problem.
We have 3 children, a huge mortgage and he says he wants us. He wants our marriage. He is willing to do anything not to loose us.
He is going to pay his whole salary into a joint account and I can move it straight away, so he has no money. He is wanting to see the GP on Monday (discovered all this on a Friday) He has told his sister and she gave him a right telling off. Next he plans to tell his mum.
But why am I terrified I’m making the biggest mistake staying with him?
I know that somewhere inside he’s still there. But am I being a fool? Am I hanging onto someone who isnt there?
Or is it possible that if he’s totally cut off that this will work? No money, no chance of getting drugs?
I feel like I’m grieving, I feel like he’s died and I’m left in that limbo before a funeral
