Can i ask you all to pray for me?

That's huge coming from my mouth. Just please pray for me. I'm not in any danger of drinking. I am not in any danger at home. The stress of living with an active alcoholic while in recovery really got to me last night and this heavy, depressed feeling is haunting me today. I need this feeling removed for today so I can make the best of today. Please. Thank you in advance.

I wish he would get pulled over and arrested. I wish he would wreck his truck (and not hurt himself or anyone else) just to open his eyes. I wish I could win the lottery and be able to move, bring my poultry and rabbits and carry on without him. I wish I could get a job offer that was flexible with my schooling, offered benefits and enough pay to get me out of here. I wish he would just stop drinking even if for one week. I wish I never entangled my life with his. I wish I sobered up sooner so I could see this one coming. I wish I moved back to New Jersey three years ago and started school there, then I could at least be by my family (although I truly believe I would still be drinking). This is what races through my mind this morning.

Prayers going out to you. Life throws some curve balls at us and our solution is no longer available to us. When life seems too overwhelmed I ask God for healing and direction. Your are one of the few that has made it and your story has not been written. Reach out to others and Work on making your world a little better. This living stuff is so hard sometimes but with God on my side and my sobriety there are brighter days ahead

Jen, been there done that with a partner. It ain't easy. Making a sober life after living a drunk life ain't easy. Hard as hell.

It's worth the work.

Prayers for you, Jen. Keep writing. I have a journal on my computer in OneNote. When I have a big problem, I give myself 15 minutes a day and I just write about it. It is one way I connect to the Divine. You said writing gave you some peace.

I have figured out some pretty big problems that way. May you find clarity and solutions.

Hi Jen, Your "I wish" post is very touching. Remember that our God can do exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond our own wishes. Keep praying BIG prayers of growth, healing, and restoration. I'll be doing the same for you and yours today. Lotsa love your way

Prayers for you, Jennifer. It is very hard living sober with an alcoholic. I hope something happens on your wish list, to help make your life more manageable.

I will pray for you Jen. Try to keep your head up. They say God does not give you more than you can handle. He must know that you are strong enough to make it through this.

Sending prayers and strength your way. I have walked in your shoes so I know first hand how difficult living with an active alcoholic is.
I am glad you are checking out Dee's links on how to leave.
