At the Crossroads
****** THIS IS AN OLD STORY. WE HAVE DIVORCED.********
So - this morninig I asked hubby to leave. I want a separation while we go through counselling, and I think that the emotional state of our house is in shambles.
I need to step up and protect myself and my son. Hubby said - fine - no more counselling, etc. And he left.
WOW - so, fast forward 5 hours.
He was gone approximately 5 hours. He came back, crying saying that he can't separate that it would be the worst thing I can do to him and that if he leaves, he will isolate, drink and that is not good for him.
I agreed - on terms - that he could stay. 1. He goes to intensive outpatient alcohol treatment 2. he goes to AA 3. He continues with the counselling.
If he does not agree to these three things, I won't do this anymore. I am tired of enabling him - tired of being tired.
I felt ok after he left - I'm so confused now he is back.
