Beside neurotin, my fiancée has been clean and sober for four days. The needles are gone, and he hasn’t had a single drink. We’re going on the fifth day today!

How this came about: He was taking one PBT a day, at 7:30 in the morning. Last Thursday (it’s Tuesday now) he was down at a dangerous…

Catch a Break

I can never seem to! With a fiancée who still doesn’t realize that because he doesn’t work yet, I need every penny of my own hard earned money to pay his/our bills, and that just because I say no when you ask for money it doesn’t mean I don’t love you and want you to be happy. I sacrifice every single day to be sure that we both have a place to live, and he wants to buy cigarettes, beer, skateboarding stuff, but I have to say no. I haven’t let myself buy anything that I did not NEED in months. Months! I just want a jones soda and a muffin, but I guess that will have to wait. You want to live life on the edge? Be poor. I mean truly poor. We don’t eat some days, not by choice, and that’s very frightening. I know I’m almost out of the woods, but not quite yet. I just want some hot chocolate from my mom and a good night’s sleep.

Oh, by the way, my right eye is trying to swell shut, and I haven’t the slightest idea why.

Yellow!

I love my job, it’s very rewarding, but wiping a 25 year old man’s ass is not very rewarding in and of itself. Other than that though, it’s great! Working four days on, and three off, is just wonderful for full time pay! And I get to go home and relax for a few hours in between my double shifts over the weekend. By the way, got a couch yesterday. My Bobby McGee is a baller. I also just found out that he is making me ribs tonight, bam. Anyway, I’m thinking about starting a blog on living with an alcoholic struggling to change. I’m considering it. I think it’d be interesting for some people to see it from my side. A Non Anonymous maybe. The turmoil involved with addiction is incredible, I never thought that dealing with any problem would be this difficult. So that’s where I’m at I guess. My client and I did a lot of nothing today, it was quite the bore fest. He’s eating ice cream, and I’m blogging. Getting ready to wind down (from our wound down day) and put him to bed. I’m gonna finish out this hot summer day (90+ degrees in the U.P. God help us) by eating some ribs and watching a movie on our new couch with my honey. Have a great time whoever may come upon this.
