I'm sorry to hear you're feeling like that. There's a lot going on, but I would suggest going to counseling. You can have someone to talk to with no reservations. And having that can help you think through a lot of what you're going through.

I hope that helps.

HUGE hugs!!! That is how my first marriage was and I remember all the times sitting waiting for him to be home...and the sinking feeling in my stomach when he was late and I realized --it was one of those nights.

The decision to go or stay is one very difficult one that only you can make and only when you have put enough thought into it that the solution becomes clear. I had many people tell me to leave, but until I had had enough--I couldn't/ I did love him and he was my daughter's father. When he was sober, he was a great dad to her and a good husband to me, unfortunately, I got tired of being second best to this alcohol and buddies. I also could not deal with the broken promises to my daughter. But that is my story....hopefully yours has a better outcome. Message me--I will not judge you in any way, remember, I was there for 10 years.....

Counseling, for both of you if possible, but if not, at least for you. You are young and you have two beautiful children. Nothing is irrevocably broken, you just need a little help figuring out what steps to take. Counseling can provide that without judgement and without bias.

Most health insurance plans will cover counseling in part (after your deductible is met), but if not, do a web search for outreach services in your area.

i also feel that counseling is a good option. it'll give you much more than a quick conversation on here could do.
