But no, my husband is a selfish excuse for a human being. He spilled morphine pills in my car a month ago. Two were unaccounted for and he never told me. We have a 2.5 year old and a 4 month old. The 2 year old found the pills. Thank GOD he asked what they were and did not put them in his mouth, but I still took him to the ER because I could not risk not taking him.
As soon as my ex showed up at the hospital, I told him that he was out of my house and I didn't think I could let him back anytime soon. He left after we got back from the hospital and went to his mother's. He then tried to ask me for money even though he hasn't worked since October and I have to pick up all the bills for myself and the kids. I never went back to a joint account after our first separation and I was not paying his bills. I did give him some money from our tax return to fix his car and some money since he was watching the baby until my lady could take another infant. Had I known he was essentially using oxy, percs, and morphine pretty much every day, I would have NEVER let him watch the baby.
This time though, I don't feel the fool I did before. This time as soon as I found out things were bad, I booted him. No wasting time, no wondering if I was overreacting, no hesitation. And now I know 110% that I am done and over with him. I sincerely hope he gets clean and stays clean and truly recovers from addiction for his own sake, but I know I can no longer be his wife and I refuse to enable in anyway. If I could remove him from my insurance today, I would. He's in rehab, but I have watched him cycle through the phases of addiction with alcohol. Now that he's on the opiate train, I'm not sure there is hope for him, but I will not put my life on hold or risk my children's safety for him.
