Him and the other woman broke up and he came unglued. I knew he had some mental health issues that affected our marriage and his parenting but I had mostly felt safe with DS with exh's gf so that was helpful. He ended up being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and started taking meds. He became a pretty good dad.
Then he stopped taking the meds. He met a new girl just out of high school (he's 31). His life has been spiraling ever since. Every time he takes my DS (which is now thankfully rare) I worry constantly. Our court order states that he has EOWE and Wednesday nights for dinner so he could take him a lot more if he chose.
This past week I got a text from him saying he wants to give up all rights to both of his children in exchange for me and the other mom waiving all past and future child support.
My heart is broken for my DS who does love his father, and yet I know this is the right thing... But it hurts. It's going to hurt so much more when DS knows what is happening.
I had to get it off my chest... I can't talk to anyone about it because DS is always around. I'm meeting with my attorney tomorrow (with the other mom) to start the process. I can't believe I chose such a horrible person to father my son.
