    Feeling very betrayed right now.

    My husband finally went in for treatment and based on the lab work they have done so far it looks like he has contracted Hepatitis. Which means that he has exposed me to it. I find myself somewhere between wanting to kill him and his junkie friends and wanting to kill myself...

    The first relapse. I don't

    even know what I feel. My husband completed rehab three months ago. The pride I felt for him was overwhelming. I don't even know if I can put it into words. He was really into his recovery and I loved it. Meetings every night, socializing with his NA family, a sponsor. I just...
