  1. She is sharing that because this could happen to YOU. My suggestion is, call this number: (888) 425-2666, the Al-Anon help line. It will help you not only to know how to handle your wife's behavior, but how to deal with your issues also. Addictions are an insidious form of illness, and they can and do end in death. Please read about the roles family plays in addiction. Since your wife is in legal trouble now, there is no time to lose. Praying!
  2. This is what I know about addictions. I was raised in a family of alcoholics. Seriously: mother, father, brother (after he was a teenager and from then on out), drinking every day. My favorite alcoholic beverage AT AGE FOUR was creme de menthe. Yeah. I suggest you educate yourself about them before you make any decisions. Your wife doesn't JUST need prayer (although she and you need that desperately). She is gonna need rehab if she is willing to give up her addiction, and you and your sons need support. Resources: Alcoholics Anonymous, Al Anon (for you), Christian rehab centers. That should give you a good start. YOU need help too, and Al Anon will help you see what your side of the problem is, and help you get what YOU need. This will help your wife also. Please PM me if you have further questions. Praying!
  3. Well I have some great news: NOT DYING. Turns out the really scary diagnosis, although it is a real diagnosis, is mostly there so my insurance company can justify me being on oxygen to the bean counters, lol. So yeah I am on oxygen, but it is due to sleep apnea and not anything I am going to die of. So HUGE RELIEF!!

    The not so great news is it looks like the assisted living stuff is going forward, universally supported by ALL my docs, and just in that process now. Please pray the Lord's will would be done with these next steps in my life and my family's life. Because I am going to have to live apart from my husband and his beloved parents, and this will be hard. :( And also new stuff wrong they are testing for. But nothing seems like a big deal after THAT scare. :)

  10. Serious Illness, Need Prayer

    OK so just going to pour my heart out here, both so you can see and to organize my thoughts. On December 20, 2017, on a routine office visit, my PCP diagnosed me with hypoxemic chronic respiratory failure. It's as scary as it sounds. The prognosis is very bad: there is no cure, it is progressive, and you know what happens when you stop breathing. The only possible hope here is that MAYBE my PCP diagnosed it so Medicare would pay for oxygen (policy change is possible), but the bad news is that even having it on my chart indicates I am DEFINITELY not healthy. I am on disability for more than one illness; I definitely cannot work. It's so bad I got disability on my first try, and they check every few years to see if I have improved, but mostly they leave me alone. Because of this, my husband and I moved in with his parents because he could not take care of me on his own. 18 years later, husband's issues are worse (he works full time but other things are hard), and in-laws are in their early 70's. No amount of trying to help me with my various issues, which include physical mobility issues, is going to make my husband not sick himself or my in-laws younger. My own family is not an option. So we are looking at assisted living for me. The family who know (including husband and his parents) are 100% behind the idea. I initiated this, so no one is pressuring me. I am looking at moving out of the home I have lived in for 18 years and not living with my husband, which is a painful thing to contemplate. But I can't take adequate care of myself and they cannot either, so this is it I am pretty sure. I meet with my doctor Friday to find out what she was thinking when she made that diagnosis, and also to discuss my recent ER visit where I had some scary symptoms. The ER ultimately didn't find anything, but all they do is determine: 1) is the patient in immediate danger of dying? and 2) do we need to hospitalize them? If the answer to both those questions is no, they send you home. It doesn't mean you're NOT sick. So it looks like I may see Jesus sooner than I expected. How do I feel about this? Well on one hand, yay seeing Jesus and eternal life! OTOH, I only have NOW to make a difference. This is why a long life is a blessing: more opportunities to serve the Lord. So I am sorta mixed about this. I will follow up after I see the doc and we figure out what need to be done. Please pray for this whole situation. Thank you SO much.
  11. Ok, well I have news. My PCP diagnosed me with hypoxemic chronic respiratory failure. This is an incurable, progressive, and usually fatal illness. I am hoping this is incorrect or merely the scariest way possible to say I need oxygen. I haven't clarified with her yet why she did this, so prayers I have misunderstood this diagnosis and somehow it is all OK. Because otherwise I will meet Jesus soon. Which is actually pretty cool. :) Please pray for me. Thanks. :)

  12. Christian Tarot Cards

    Topless dancing in a drum circle is DEFINITELY Pagan, so we know for sure the Enemy inspired this one.
  13. What is the best anti-virus?

    ESET and Malwarebytes. ESET was recommended to me by computer techs, and I have had zero issues. I use it to protect my phone too.

    Thank you, shanee! I just followed someone's advice and confessed what sins I am aware of. I did feel better after. I am pretty much right with God so not a lot to change there. And Bible study is pretty much always a good idea.
