Where to put it??

Rating: 2 votes, 4.50 average.
Where do I put the pain of the husbands drinking? The lies, the mean things that are spoken, not sure where to put it. It is so hard. When they apologize, you want to forgive and move on and then with a blink of an eye they do it again. What are you supposed to make of that as a spouse. It is so disappointing.

    My heart goes out to you. Have you tried talking to support groups? Ones that might be able to really help you deal with this. There are groups that are associated with Alcaholics anonimous that are for children and spouses of alcoholics. It might be a place to start.

    I don't have the same problem but my husband does drink to much too often to my liking. It absolutely infuriates me. The apologies and the promises only last a couple of days. I hope things turn around for you. You are in my prayers.

    Most of all you have to be sure you are happy. Dont put your self second best to anyone. When DH dose somthing really thoughtless i tell him. If he dosent care I ignore him and his meals and his loundery ect. after a bit he feels bad and aplogises. I like to remind him how much I do for him. They so easily forget that its not little nomes that get everything done so they can relax while we are working our buts off. how did the class go??

    You have put your trust in God, thats a start. A support group would help also. I sure wish I could give you a hug and tell you everything will be okay. Your hubby NEEDS help! You have to remember that you have done nothing wrong and the hurtful things he says - thats a stranger saying them. You have a heart of gold to continue to deal with this, but you can not do this alone!! I will keep you in my prayers! Let me know how it goes dear friend!!
