Strat,

I'm praying on this for you. Life isn't fair but hope you're on the upside of this soon!

Don't let it ruin your sobriety. Hugs...............

Keep hanging in there stratman. Drinking won't make the situation any better and can make the situation worse. I am glad you're reaching out right now.

I know this must be hella frustrating Strat, but to put things in perspective, 8 hours in court beats 8 hours in detox anyday!

Well, I owe it to the kid to let him know that I am ok.

He has suffered greatly the past 2 years

I'm doing the right thing here amn't I guys?

Like, initially I wanted just to give him his xmas presents last year.

But in reality I know that I will not be able to have a real relationship with him anymore.

It's a natural thing to want to be part of your sons life Start. I wouldn't stop fighting for you, why would you? why would any Dad?

But I know that I will not be able to have a real relationship with him anymore.
Don't make forever declarations on the way things are now.
Things change

Hi Stratman,

I am really sorry to hear that you are having rough time. Stay close to your SR friends. Remember that feelings ebb and flow.

Don't lose hope! I know it sounds stupid but I've seen many seemingly-hopeless situations resolved for the best with a bit of perseverance. Keep doing the right things and don't give up. Hang in there. I know it's hard, but try!

I am losing hope Myth. And I am trying. I'm trying to bring this to fruition, remain sober and battle with depression at the same time.

I just got off the phone to my solicitor. There is no date now, after 6 months. The courts will contact me when they decide a new date.

Guys it really feels like I am being ostracized now. Does anyone in Ireland know how any of this this works??? I'm just getting depressed.

See a doc if need be. Keep the Faith. Pray. I'm praying, too.

Hang in there. Stay sober. Things will turn around. Believe that.
