Trauma to his children


My husband has an ex who is an alcoholic, has been in and out of the hospital because of it and was told not to drink at all. Of course she started again. We got a call from her family about it , she called her boyfriend drunk and driving, he called them and they called us. After talking to them that’s when his 12 year old said mom was drinking again. He told what he knew and we decided we could not let him go back there. What if they found her dead? Not to mention the drinking and driving!! The trauma would be unreal! He also has a 15 year old who is I really believe autistic, lots of other people have said the same but when it is mentioned to his mother she freaks out and says no he’s not doing that testing and usually stops going to that dr. The 15 year old is all about momma and will not leave her side at all, hates dad and I and just repeats everything momma says. I almost think he would kill himself if he found her dead. She uses his ADHD as a crutch and blames the other son, who is also ADHD for everything so he will end up resenting his brother. We talk about all this with him , he is in all the gifted and talented at school and really is perceptive.

So mom has so far tried, guilt, bribery, “the you don’t love me “, thing , has tried to get him out of our house and into her truck and he just keeps telling her he will come home when she gets help.

She won’t, she denies it all and has convinced herself all she believes is true and we have lied about everything turning her child against her.

His grandmother called him and as usual puts it all on him and his brother. Told him to go home and said to just call if something happens!!! Oh ok so let the kids deal with her drinking, let the kids be the ones to find her dead , what is wrong with these people!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!

Seriously!!! I am just beside myself, as it is I can only try to save one from the trauma and abuse , although the grandmother says they should deal with this together so they can support each other. ? I don’t even know if any of this will hold up in court for temp custody. I don’t know what to do. She won’t admit she has a problem, the only proof we have is from the 12 year old testimony and I just don’t know what to do to help the 15 year old!!!!

Anyone have any advice??????????

Disappointed in humanity


I am one of the “high risk” people out there and I am so disappointed in the amount of people still out doing whatever they want. I have not left my property in weeks now and it is mostly because of inconsiderate people. The traffic on my road has not slowed, the schools are the only change it seems around us. My husband is an essential so is still working and thankfully does not come in contact with many people. We have hand sanitizer that he uses before he even comes in the house and the packages and mail all stay out on the porch for 3 days before I open anything. He will throw away whatever is junk instead of even bringing it in and takes some things out of the amazon boxes.

I have never been afraid to die but I also have never had all I ever dreamed for before. I think the thing bothering me the most, I was depressed!!!! What?!?!? I am only slightly doing things differently, I never left my house anyway!!!! Maybe once or twice in a good week and it was either just to drive or it was with my husband shopping. Soooooo, I don’t get it but, even though my life did not change a lot it effected me a lot. Oh how the emotions and brain works!!!

High Risk


People are just being crazy , buying out toilet paper? I mean, really??? Yup, that is what the virus is like here in Maine. I live in a country area out side a small city, about an hour drive to a major city. As of this being written we had 52 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus in the state. I never went out much so staying home is easy for me but my husband works for the railroad, so he has to work to make sure things people need get to where they are needed.

I am a high Risk with my autoimmune so every time he leaves the house we worry about when he gets home. The railroad is not going to inform the rest of the guys if one of them gets sick even though a lot of the guys have high risk wives, the Union is working on that but I don’t see it happening. The majority of guys are carrying Lysol wipes with them to wipe down the controls before their shifts. We have wipes in every room so he comes in the back door using a Lysol wipe to open and close the doors and goes directly into the bathroom which is right next to the black door, takes off his clothes and puts them in a bag and takes a shower. Then puts the clothes in the laundry.

I feel guilty that my family is suffering more from this because of me, my son can’t go to his girlfriends house, she has lots of siblings and is still going to the gym as I write this. I know he is mad and says she knows what she is doing but, it would only take that one missed spot or something.

I don’t know if it’s enough or if it’s too much? I know I am scared, I know the thought of leaving my husband and my sons all with out me worries and scares me. I have known for over 20 years that this one little pill is what kept me alive. I know at one point I though God was cruel giving me something that I could not just sleep for days with, that I had to get up and face the world long enough to eat and take my pills, which means I’m awake now. This is on a whole new level now though, I could die if I leave my house and come across someone sick or something else that has germs from the sick on it. I try to keep updated with real information and just hope it blows over very soon!

Final Plans


Since we are not working on the sun porch or changing windows downstairs, they did not add them to the plans, I actually do have windows!!!!
What it comes down to is, taking the whole second floor off and building a new one, adding a full bathroom upstairs, moving the second story stairs and putting on a small addition to square it off . Then we change the downstairs bathroom , laundry room and added kitchen space where the addition is. The house is 30 x32 finished.

This is the side that faces the fields and will be the new view for our new master bedroom and bath!
Love this new back to my house!!!
We may put the deck from end to end so we can have a covered section.
