I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it takes a real man/woman to admit that they have a problem– and to go a major step beyond that and seek help. Those individuals who understand that some issues simply cannot be handled without some outside assistance have my admiration and respect. My husband is one of those people. While he certainly doesn’t have the greatest track record for smart decisions and productive behavior [and I am not speaking poorly of him because he will be the first to agree with you]….most, if not all, of his mistakes can be attributed to his struggles with substance abuse. It is with cautious optimism and tremendous joy that he has decided to voluntarily enter a sober living facility a few towns away from us. It is long term yet he will be released for Tatum’s birth. Regardless of what I have endured I hope for the sake of my children that he can get his life back on track.
