Hi Kristen, I've deleted everything except for this post. I'm very proud of you for letting go of the chaos and focusing on you and your kids. Especially you though. I know it probably sounds trite, but you really deserve a much better partner. Someone who will care about you as much as you care about them.

If you ever feel like, I'd love to know how you're doing. And you can just talk about YOU and not the chaos you're leaving behind.

My very best to you.

Nancy

Thank you, Nancy. I will pop in soon with updates.
Yesterday a friend of mine and Lincoln's, relapsed on crack. I had been talking to him everyday, and he seemed to be doing so well and was very happy, so I was blindsided by the news of relapse. It made me think of how time and time again I have seen that no matter how well Lincoln is doing, or how perfectly happy Lincoln is with our life and our relationship, he will always ruin it with his addiction to crack.
My friend I told you has her own problems going on, asked me, "if I was in your situation, how would you advise me". I realized I had two friends about 10 years ago who were in the same situation I am currently in, and I recall how tragic it played out for all involved.
Between our friend that relapsed, and reflecting on the situations I saw my friends go through, I realized why my favorite quote has always been, "Let go, or be dragged".
I've been dragged long enough.

-Kristen

Hi Kristen, yes, you've been dragged long enough is right! I'm very happy you let go. You 'sound' empowered now. Which looks good on you!
