He is seeing an attorney today. He moved out about a month ago, but we go back and forth. He is very controlling and has made me feel crazy. He plays alot of head games, I never know whats truth or a test. He does this with my kids too and they are tired of it. I'm in counseling and its helping me find my voice, but he says all this is my fault and I fight not to give in to that. Lots of things have happened that my 13 yr has told my exhusband which has made him feel the kids are not in a good situation. He has been patient, but I feel that is coming to an end. My daughter has said if I stay with my husband, she will live with her dad because of how he treats her.
I haven't worked in 9 years and so afraid I won't be able to provide for these kids. I applied for stamps yesterday. I can't tell you how terrified I am.
My exhusband lives 2 1/2 hrs from here and yes the gas is an issue. He does want to see the kids more, he feels he only has 2 weekends a month and has offered to help me. He is a good dad, but hes also very critical of me. Things that were ok when we were together and not now. I do feel the boys that are 10 right now need the role model of their dad. I would like him to be at the things they do because they do grow up so fast.
But I don't want him in my business either. He has a very controlling wife that seems to know all. They have alot of money and a big house, it drives me crazy the way they seem to buy the kids.
I just feel I would be moving from my support group, I would know no one down there. It does have its upsides, if my daughter and I pull resources together, it may provide a better place to live and she could help out. She really does want to be with me too, we get along really well. I just don't want to create more hardship for these other kids. The boys are 10 and Katelyn is 13, if I didn't already mention that.
I have this summer to decide this and I just feel sick. I just pray that God will take this and show me the way, its bigger than I am.
