Please do something for yourself tonight that makes you feel good. Read a little, take a bath, drink some tea, take a walk etc. Whatever makes you feel good regardless of the situation at hand.

I understand that it's tough to see the forest beyond the trees sometimes. I am not perfect myself and I am in the midst of my own recovery now. Those little things have helped me to be stronger and realize that I matter too!

After the conversation I just had with him, I am going to run for the hills as has been suggested. He has refused the nurse home care before, 2 times, once the doc at hospital tried to set up, the other time I set up through my doc. I was with him when the nurse came over one time. After that he said they can't do anything for him anyways.

It was clear in the last conversation I had with him today, where I tried to set the boundary of no money, that all he is interested in is getting money. He was angry, said he things that showed he was ungrateful, didn't want the food I bring all he wants clearly, is money so that "he can function, clean his room and put bandages on his wounds". I have heard this so many times and then even after he has money, he still does not clean or bandage his wounds. If I say get home care to help, he says no, if I say call an ambulance if it's that bad he says no. There is no other way as long as I am in contact with him. He is clearly ungrateful, blames me, accuses me and threatens me so I am no longer going to be around. I will change my numbers. I will move, it's too bad I took him out here to go fishing once, otherwise I wouldn't worry about moving but he could bring someone to drive him out here.

As long as I am in contact with him the no money rule just can't apply. I have to go no contact and shut the door to this chapter of my life and move on. Then I have to be sure to never look back. Otherwise he will continue to ask me for money and if he doesn't get it, will make threats, blame me, be mean to me, etc etc and simply I am not strong enough to say no under these circumstances, as the threats either scare me that he will hurt me, himself or someone else.

What I am reading is that he wants to do it "his" way....with your $$. His way is probably going to end in death.

Your way could (and probably will) end in death.

Codependents have an unhealthy sense of "being responsible" for.....well.....everything.

With all of the compassion in my heart I would tell you that he is not your responsibility. Even tho your heart (and his manipulation) is tricking you into thinking so.

With all of the compassion in my heart I would tell you to save yourself and give him to his higher power. If his HP wants him to get help....it's not going to happen with you "in the way".

Terribly sorry that my post offends you, Faithfully, but sometimes being offended is a good thing. The title of your post is "I just can't take it anymore", yet your offense to several of our honest responses suggests that not only can take it, you must enjoy it as you are down-right offended when people agree with you that this man is using you. I stand firmly by my post and have recently, note i said recently, in my journey to get healthy from my own CoDependency, learned that it is actually sinful for us to NOT set boundaries and protect ourselves. God is the only reason I am on my way to a better life and free from the misery of the active addiction of my husband. Because of Him alone, my husband is in recovery (for now) and I am learning that I am not responsible for other people's feelings. I pray that you stay strong and put yourself first, honestly, I really do. CoDependency is misery! Ask me how I know?.

I agree this post/situation is crazy. Is this a boyfriend or relative?

Faithfully,

Glad to read that you had an eye opening experience that is putting you on a path of taking care of you and you alone and going no contact with this toxic man in your life.

And is this the same staph infection he was fighting 4 years ago? It sounds like this guy know exactly how to get what he wants from YOU. if he's dying, go ahead and earmark the yellow pages for HOSPICE.

really casinos? I'm morbidly curious how you grew up that you're buying this stuff. I hope you can get some help for you
