    Hello Everyone,:biggrin:
    Happy Holidays to all! I know it can be hard around this time a year but i hope you all made the best of it.
    I just wanted to share what has been going on with me these past couple of weeks.:biggrin:
    I have been very depressed because ever since my parents divorced i have not seen my dad at all (its been a few months) no calls, no visits... i took it very hard and became very sad and angry which did not help with my hubby at all. We would get into arguements because of it....
    Everytime i go through things that are hard he goes through them with me and i have felt so bad about that.
    DD is doing so much better :biggrin: He has been so great to me lately...and to a point it scares me but i am really enjoying it on top of that i am trying my best to be good to him as well like he deserves... i still slip at times but i really am trying. :)
    He made my christmas so wonderful....Bough me a huge real xmas tree in which i have never had before so that made me very happy and he took me out to get it when i was having one of the worst days ever...yelling and screaming that i didnt want to live anymore. He huged me, picked me up off the floor and i didnt even have to get "beautiful" or anything:biggrin: We went shopping together, we decorated the tree together and i even had the honor of taking pictures with him and my beagles in front of the tree for xmas eve!!!! :)
    He bought me a mini tree for the bedroom as well.... I just feel very happy at the moment and lucky to have such a great guy in my life I dont know how long this will last and i am afraid every day that he will go back to that stranger that i dont like or that i will screw things up again...but i have learned to take one day at a time and appreciate him while he is well.... He is looking to become a firefighter so i am trying my best to support him as much as i can :biggrin: without being such a brat...
    He has been very caring, and lovable...he hugs and gives my kisses :) We cuddle at night and i sleep so much better now :) I even get very excited that he shaved and dressed so nice and even sat next to me at christmas dinner :) Its like getting a treat!! :)
    He is an amazing person and he has done so much for me....i just wanted to share with everyone that he means the world to me. I want to say thank you to everyone for the amazing support and advice! Without you guys i would have been so lost..and i hope to help someone here....anyone... i know how hard this is and how horrible days or even life may seem....Yet Everyone here is amazing and i am glad we are here for each other. You are all in my prayers...

    Another Happy Face!

    The police dept. made hubby return to work just before X-mas, as they were going to be working short. He had to work X-mas Eve. (He turns into the BIGGEST Grinch at X-mas because of all that he's seen on the job at X-mas.) We had plans to go out of state for X-mas, & he was kind of excited about that-- though I think he was more excited about leaving town & leaving X-mas encounters behind him.
    His X-mas Eve Day shift was uneventful & almost behind him... 30mins before his shift ended he gets a call re: an overdose. (just perfect) So hubby shows up & there's not 1 OD but 2. (& he has to go to the hosp w/ them) 1 was DOA, the other still alive & lucky enough to get his stomach "pumped out". He'd taken 30 Lortab, 60 Xanax, & 90 Methadone. :naughty: Not enough to kill him, but enough to make him wish it had. (Treatment isn't pleasant.) But he lived!
    Somehow this event seemed to restore hubby's faith in the holiday-- maybe because he felt he'd made it thru X-mas without multiple catastrophies? Whatever it was, I'm thankful for it. That day hubby made a 180 degree turn around. I had the 1st X-mas in 10yrs with a husband who was happy, warm, laughing, affectionate... this person was the man I fell in love with. It looks as though we got a X-mas miracle. :biggrin: That man is still here today-- not at 100%, but a far, far cry from the man he was before X-mas. I hope & pray this lasts, if only for a while, as it's showing him how much of life he was missing. I praise his efforts like crazy :clap: , but not so as to go overboard or so much as to make him self-conscious. I just thank him for trying. I still give him lots of room & don't place alot of expectations on him. He's been "gone" for soooo long that right now, this is enough. :biggrin:
    Thanks for listening to our story.

    Wow!

    Thanks so much, Hannah! I'm still gonna take it 1 day at a time. it may not show here by some of the things I say, but I'm an eternal optimist with a heavy dose of realism thrown in! I'll keep givimg him space & all the other stuff... But it's sooo wonderful to see at least part of the man I fell in love with again! :kiss: :biggrin:
