8. Thank you so much for this, RC.
I appreciate every single thing you said. And yeah, once trust is broken, it's damned near impossible to get it back again.

Funny thing is, it's now been 1 month since he told me, yet he hasn't filed for a divorce. Of course, that would take $$ away from his addiction. I've noticed the benefits of not having to clean up after him, of having a significantly lower grocery bill, and an overall peacefulness and calm in this home, especially with the cats. And most importantly, I am seeking the healing I need to deal with MY issues, and am growing closer to God every day.

I still pray for Andy every day, but also realize that he's headed for self-destruction. And yes, things won't change until he hits rock bottom. Perhaps there might be forgiveness ahead...I still love him, despite what he's done and said... but for now, he is toxic. I can't be dragged down to his level, because it would try to destroy me. I deserve better, and will do what I must to become and remain healthy.

Thank you again for sharing so intimately. Sometimes we just need to know that we don't walk down a road alone, and that others have passed this way AND SURVIVED.

Love ya, sister! :loveya: :hug: :hug: :hug:

and a good ear skritch to Raven for me!
