Hi Dr. Michael,
It has been a while since my last post to you. I do need this correspondence with you for my own "mental health". Although things in my husband's and my lives are crazier than ever, I do feel a peace and feel that things are on the right track.
As far as my husband and the issues I recently discussed with you....I am so proud of him! He knew that he could not jeopordize "saving" his twelve year old daughter in any way and made the commitment to clean himself up. Although he's been a pain in the butt, he has not given in to that commitment. I actually snapped the other day because I was under so much stress
and I felt that in the last two months he has not listened to me when I attempt to express my feelings. I made myself heard by blowing his phone up with text messages while he was at work. I pushed him as far as I could. My technique probably could use some work, but the next day he was kind and sweet and truly listened to me (Remember my pending Book, "Please Pass the Peas). The cool thing was he didn't resort to any vice because of our horrible argument. He said he had no desire to do so. His priorities are definitely in order.
Meanwhile he has been attacked in every way by his evil ex-wife. We are both very concerned about his daughter. It does appear that her personality disorder is very severe. The things she and her shadey Lawyer are doing are crazy. The Just Answer Lawyer we have been in contact with has helped us with the motion to enforce psychiatric evaluations of both parties. Do you think he should include in the motion examples of her projection indicating they are possible signs of a personality disorder?
I know I have expressed that my husband has relied on me to help him with his legal paperwork. I actually don't mind, because I too want to do everything possible to recieve custody of this little girl. I love her like she's my own. I actually was able to turn my case with my evil ex over to hopefully my final Attorney and Forensic expert. What a relief! Now, I have so much time on my hands, ha ha.
So to update: Head-lice is gone; my 52 year old ex still has his 30 year old girl-friend with her 9 month old illigitimate baby; my 17 year old son has an adorable girlfriend but is adament he does not want to have an illigitimate baby; my 9 year old son thinks his dad is a "poop off" and wishes his step-dad was his real dad. He also thinks his step-sister's mom is a "poop off" and wants his sister to live with us forever; my husband is drrug free and looks and acts very healthy; I'm in late stages of menopause; I was told by my lastest Attorney it appears I have a major settlement coming my way.....
Can't wait for that vacation!!!!!!!!
