Attempted Murder: My husband and my son's reaction to it....(PIOG)
I don't think I mentioned it here, but if I did I am sorry...but nothing has changed. My son hasn't spoken to me in several weeks. He witnessed the tail end of this because I screamed for him and he had to come disarm my husband. He is staying at my brother's, whom I despise because he HATES ME for no reason at all. He totally could care less that I was almost killed. He thinks I am a huge loser..I almost have a Ph.D., but was a stay at home mom because I could afford to be. We weren't rich like him, but there are various forms of wealth and I felt I had it b/c of my success with my son. My husband was not always violent. He has PTSD from Vietnam, and this was only the second incident; the other was only two weeks before and I knew it was b/c of the PTSD. He had an appt in a week, and I had called the VA and begged them to do something because he was acting so weird. My son is not his child; his father died when he was four. Does anyone have any ideas about WHY he is doing this (my son)? I am going through the motions to get him to counseling, but my brother isn't cooperating...help!
