going home for ME

i read everyone's responses to my posting... my AH is on dialysis because his OD left him with kidney failure (OD'ing on meth does that)
but i really pondered a lot about our future and how is STILL in denial about himself... not to mention his parents blaming me (??) whihc is also a coping mechanism

i have decided to be selfish and leave for a 10-14 days and GIVE MYSELF A BREAK. his parents can think whatever they want... he is there regressing back in their cocoon at age 31. I am going to take the time to focus on what i want and really think about. best part... i'll be on a whole different continent and i think that will be good for him too.

i think having me "still here" (even though i meet him only once a day for a couple of hours) isn't really giving either one of us the space.

i can;t fix him or his family. but i can take control of my life and make a few selfish decisions for myself.

after days of being angry and depressed, i see a thin silver lining.
thank you to everyone here for their support. i love my husband, but i can't sink into denial with the rest of his family.

Yes you can!! Good for you. There are a few/couple (?) of us who have recently taken trips as well. For me, it was a time to really get back to me so I could see what it was that I want/don't want. Still not sure what I want in the future, but I know for sure I do not want to live the roller coaster anymore.

Wishing you peaceful, serene time for yourself.
