I'm Going to Jail?

ROFLMAO!

That is what I was told by Mr Man this morning. 

Because I "am in possession of a controlled substance not prescribed to me".........however, I reminded him that "I do not possess them, they are in HIS home and HE is taking them."  I am only making sure that he doesn't accidently overdose.

I said "go ahead and have me arrested for trying to keep a drug addict alcoholic from killing himself or someone else" because I am not afraid of going to jail.

1)  I know the sheriff...

2)  I am known by a couple of judges and several attorney's...

3)  I do not have prior records of drug use and dui.....

4)  The charge won't stick anyway....

5)  I look good in orange!

My attorney friend told me a couple of years ago that if I ever needed assistance with getting help for Mr Man he would be willing to go into the judge's chambers on my behalf.  So...go ahead, arrest me!!  LOL.

Mr Man states that "there will be reprocussions" in his journal entry of today.

But I have a plan too, Mr Man.  You have a Dr appt on Tuesday.  I'm going to get into a heated debate with you tonight which will result in my giving back your drugs with the statement "here, go ahead, take them, kill yourself if that's what you want"........therefore you will begin your over medication and I will suggest a toxicity report be done on Tuesday.

I did go by the new Doc's office today to pick up the medical release form.  I asked the intake lady if I could specify certain "ailments"...she said "such as?" and I had her list "alcohol" and "drug abuse".

She also gave me all of the intake papers to fill out for a new patient.  That way we'll be ahead of the game.  She got the impression that this was a very serious appointment for me.

I have every feeling that Tom is on his way out......out of my life and he knows it.

How do I feel about that?  Sad.....he has such potential.  He can be a fun and loving person.  But he's out of control and it doesn't seem that he wants to be "normal" whatever that is.

He likes his addictions and he doesn't want to change.

Maybe it's time to let him go and let him live his life.

Sharon, I feel for you.  I really do.  I lived with addicition for so damned long that it killed the love completely.  It was after I stopped being policewoman to the substances and said like you did...go ahead, drink all you want.  I'm done counting and hiding the stuff because he always managed to get more somehow.  It's sad but you simply cannot let yourself and Miss T sink with the ship.  I was just reading your other entries.  I have to tell you your pictures of Tom on the deck hit home so hard.  I've been there and done that and saw that with my ex just about in every spot imaginable inside and outside of my old house.  Good luck.  You always have an ear here.  Love ya, Chris

It is so sad.  But as you know crazy is NOT the new normal.  Time for some healing for you and Miss T.  Wish it were different for you.

It's so saddening that it boils down to this, but..... one has to do what one has to do to protect yourself! I'll continue to pray for relief and comfort to come your way! Take care of you my friend - We're here if need be.

im sorry to say but i find the answer to the problem in the last two lines you wrote..it is hi s beast to carry.. you and miss T shouldnt have to spend years ..constantly picking up the pieces of his messes ..god know one day he may just snap out of it and realise how good he had it and it will be too too late..sharon dont suffer daily verbal abuse from him for years ....love Sue i hate telling you what to do but i have lived it first hand and wish somone had made me see i was enabling him to continue to abuse himself...such as you hiding his meds he needs to be accountable even if its not good

I was going to ask, "why do you stay?" but you're ahead of that game too.  It is sad when you can't save people from themselves when they don't want to be saved.  Don't waste your life, Sharon.  Live and dream...your life and your dream.

I want to see you go to jail for trying to prevent him from going to the morgue.  You are doing the right thing, but I can see you are getting taxed by the whole situation.  I don't envy you but I am impressed by your strength and devotion to help.

when an addict is NOT willing to admit they have a problem, nothing anyone does matters in the end. I have learned that thru a marriage and being raised by two drunks. YOU do not deserve this but i understand why you fight FOR him. I just hope he is worth it!
love, lj

I know it must get exhausting keeping tabs on all day long and battling with him.  I hope the doc appt goes well.  You deserve so much more.Oh yeah, does Tom have a journal???
