Good morning, everyone. I usually post in P.E. because my difficult child is at a Residential Treatment Center (RTC), but I think this is more suited to being in here. My husband is an alcoholic. Has been for a long time, but things are getting worse. I could write for days about dysfunctional extended family dynamics with my inlaws, etc, but I won't for now. Anyway, like I said, things are getting worse, and it seems that things are coming to a head. I think that my inlaws are going to issue an ultimatum: either husband goes to rehab, or he loses his job (he works in the family business). I am a family black sheep, and my mother in law has been adamant that I not be involved or even told anything. My sister in law thinks this is horribly wrong and has been my informant. I am just trying to keep my together and take care of my boys. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone, privately if preferred, who has dealt with anything like this.
