daughter meets druggy
Posted by david on 7 March 2016.
5 years ago my daughter left her husband for another chap he seemed ok to start with but as time went on I learnt more about him he had done time for badly beating his wife infront of his children he is a drug addict and I believe she is taking them , he agrees to let her see her children(she lost custody of them so long as the chap is around they are looked after by other family members)then stops her at the last minute or he lets her meet them then 2 mins later will phone and order her home and she goes, I asked her why she does not leave him and she replied dad I would but its not that easy I have to think of the children she rarely sees the kids or phones not even on there birthdays on the odd time she answered her phone to me he is in the back ground shouting and swearing to give her a few hundred quid (I refuse) since she has been with him she has gone from having a nice house her kids to loosing weight no money begging for money and food outside shops sleeping in doorways she has been attacked by drug dealers and ended in hospital and scarred for life for not paying there debts she has been been to court for shop lifting driving offences he has been to court for several minor offence he is a foul mouthed violent & controlling bully due to all this I am now suffering for post traumatic stress & depression I have been so low I have self harmed considered overdose and have been off from work for three weeks and hope one day it will all end I just cant cope with this at times but councelling is helping but it seems a slow progress
