Ohio tornado season has ripped through my life......

We had a tornado hit down the road a few weeks ago but that's not what I am talking about. My life has been completely over turned lately. And I was so embarrassed to share but it has been eating me up!

My husband and I are recovering alcoholics and addicts. I have 20 months sober today and my hubby just had 31 months, and then he relapsed twice in less than a week and was missing for 3 days. Complete agony. And then he came home to get more money to use up and ended up hitting me. So I pressed charges and he is now sitting in jail since last Wednesday and will be til at least the 1st. My kids are confused. I am torn. And my two year old just keeps asking for daddy. We could all use some major prayer!!! Everyday I just ask God to carry me through and help me to do his will.

Now I am just trying to figure out how to pay rent and the bills and such since he went through ALL the money!
I HATE THIS DISEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alcoholism!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARRRHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love my husband. But as long as he is in his disease....he can't ever come back!!!

  1. Oh, Mary! I am so sorry to hear that your life has been turned upside down. I will be sending you positive energy and hope that the situation works itself out in the quickest and best way possible.

  2. Mary, I'm so sorry. Hopefully, being in jail will be his "bottom" and he'll get back on the road to recovery. Sending you the best positive energy I can.

  3. Mary, I've been praying and praying for you (and I know SO MANY other people who are doing the same)! I am so sorry that this has happened. It just creeps in and cracks your life wide open and you don't even know how or when it happened. Tim snapped out of it when he relapsed and this is what I am hoping will happen with your marraige. We all love you, even if you don't know it, and have been praying fiercly for you.

  4. Thanks so much you guys. Right now just trying to put one foot in front of the other.

  5. Hi Mary, Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sorry to hear that your life is so "stormy" right now. Hang in there.

  6. Mary, thanks for the comment on my blog. I wish I was reading the same story about your life. Life can be so hard to take sometimes. God will give us the strength to get through. My mom has always told me that God won't give you more than you can handle. Hang in there, the bumps may be hard but things will turn around....they have to, right? Hugs sent your way!
