Re: Married to Maybe the Most Functional Alcoholic Ever, and Ready to Walk
Please stop and think about the message that you truly want to send your husband here Shimmer.
In my past I had a spiral leg break and was in a cast and on crutches for 18 weeks. I was not allowed to drive. But the only thing I needed help with was accessing the bank, and grocery shopping. At the time I had 2 young children to care for. It was during the first separation from my husband. 3 years apart, before I made the mistake of believing he had really changed his ways and allowed him back. Sure, he offered, but I would not accept his help. I arranged a carpool for my daughter to get to school with one of her little friends. And my mother drove me to the bank etc. Other than that, I did everything else myself. Cooking, cleaning, laundry. Hell, I got so good on my crutches I could just about dance!
My point? Husband doesn't need you Shimmer. He has mates, his son.....himself! You really took him in at your place and let him sleep in your bed??! Wow. If he isn't milking this for all it's worth I'll count myself surprised. You're playing right into his hands Shimmer. I know it's hard when you are conditioned to care for him, but I really think it would be smart if you took a step back. He's a grown man. Make him do for himself.
