I've reached out to family and I've told them the truth.

I think I might need some kind of rehab for my issues.

Have you thought anymore on what you might add to your existing recovery plan Angie?

I've got a bad infection in my eye and I will be back when it doesn't hurt to look at the screen. I'm not drinking. Thank you all so much.

My eye is better, still infected but I have medication for it. I'm trying to get in a place that is 100% covered with my insurance since I work in the medical field. Of course, while I am out of work then I won't get paid as much and my ex husband is causing issues with my going. It's from 9 to 3 so I can still take my son to school and pick him up. It's the only thing that works. I just am tired of the stress but I'm going to a meeting tomorrow. I don't want to ever drink again but I know I need help and I'm so trying.

I did go yesterday and AA just isn't the right route for me. I know it helps a lot and has saved many lives but it's just not right for me.

That's ok Ang - but please don;t give up finding what is the right support for you.

You could try other meetings, or try other meeting based approaches like SMART or LifeRing?

My ex husband said it is not right for him to be solely responsible if Alex gets sick at school while I'm "having fun at rehab and not working." How does anyone think what I'm going through is fun?! I don't know what to do and I'm tired of thinking about it.

Thats a ridiculous thing to say Angie and very easily dismissed in any court of the land.

It's not, in any sense of the word, fun.

You've been solely responsible for your son many times and never ever complained. Why would you?

Grrr.

I wouldn't ever complain but his dad is saying if I'm in treatment then he shouldn't be the one to pick up Alex if he's sick at school. He's never picked him up,it's always been me but he says since he's in management then he can't. Alex is on my insurance that I have through my job.

I gave his dad a copy of the insurance card since I got two of them in case something happened on his day with him.

In California we have a full week a year for Kincare to spend taking care of loved ones. He hasn't used a day and I've used 24 for Alex earlier when he was sick.

Do you have a start date for rehab? Or are you avoiding rehab based on your ex's threats?

I agree with Dee - find something to support your recovery that works.

Your ex will always try to stop you from improving your life. Don't give him the power.
