Alcoholic violent ex scares me

My ex is an alcoholic in total denial.he went to prison for assault on me and battery to his mother, he took our child out and got drunk until he passed out with her in his care. He abuses his parents who keep taking him back and threatens me via txt message.

He has lost his mind and behaves like a mental person,totaly irrational and can only ever think of himself. He abuses people until they have enough then when nobody will take him in he fakes overdoses for attention and always wants people to feel sorry for him.

I am afraid for myself and 2 children(1 whom is his)as i do think he has mental problems and has lost his mind and i don’t know what he is capable of or how far he would go. I don’t know where this is going to end i think in his state of mind something serious is going to happen.

Stop the insanity now

Dear Scared,
Your ex is the reason we have 911. Let him know you plan to use it and then do SO when necessary.

Best, Joe

Hi-I am sorry to hear about your terrible predicament.

It sounds to me like you should see a lawyer. If you cannot afford one you should be able to get a public defender but you may have to go through the police department to do that – I don’t know.

I think that if you would go to an Al Anon meeting (for family and friends of alcoholics and drug addicts) it would help you. There you will meet others in the same or similar circumstances as yourself. I go to the meetings and they help me immensely.

Fortunately, I have never had to deal with someone violent. However, my son who is a drug addict has driven while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The law considers the car a weapon when someone does that. He is now in jail, and it is not the first time. He is saying he is sick of that lifestyle and does seem to be taking some good steps. Every day I give my day to God and I pray for him, also.

As you probably are, I am heartbroken over the whole situation. However, through Al Anon and other support that I get I have learned that I have to take care of myself. I also see a counselor, talk to my clergy and see a physician’s assistant. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I think you really need to get some support for yourself.

Best wishes and I will be praying for you-Lynette
