Welcome to the forums and especially with the pain you have been going through (thankyou for having the courage to reach out to us....you are strong JJ)
As you are aware meth is a vile addiction. My friends son was (is) addicted to this poison and the rehab alone cost about $35,000 and he is still taking items from her home and reselling them for a hit. Can I ask you how your husband manages to pay for his meth?
I am very sorry that your husbands addiction to this vile drug has affected you and your childrens lives. My heart really goes out to you on this as I have seen the behavior of a meth addict and the effect it has on a family JJ
The police not wanting to get involved is bizzare as even possession of crystal meth is illegal...the last time I checked. The property issues are important yet so is the well being of you and your children too
You mentioned that when he crashes he becomes emotionally and verbally abusive to you and the children. This is emotional abuse which is the same as physical abuse. There is no difference JJ
I am a volunteer on the forums that has 35 years of experience where clinical anxiety/depressive illnesses are concerned.....however from what you have posted....the emotional abuse is also domestic abuse...its not on!
Beyond Blue have links with the super gentle people on lifeline 13 11 14 who can offer excellent advice where a partner with a meth addiction is concerned. The counselors are qualified and non judgemental too!
You have everything to gain and nothing to lose by making this one call JJ.
We are here too of course. There are many gentle people on the forums that can be here for you as well JJ
I hope you can post back with any thoughts/questions when its convenient for you JJ
thankyou for being a part of the Beyond Blue forum family JJ
my kindest thoughts for you in this difficult time
