I hope you are doing good!
Thank you for taking your time to read this. I would like to tell you about my partner and myself. How we are trying to get a second chance at life. And when i was looking for options i have seen this one. I hope this will warm your hearts and thanks for everything in advance. Ok so the story begins when i met this guy amazing looking and most amazing person that i know. We are a couple from Australia. It was love in first sight. We met in 2018. I loved him very much and we started dating. At the time the only thing i did not know that my partner was started using drugs 2-3 months before i met him and he was struggling. Don’t get me wrong apparently before even he started using and having a problem. He lost his job because of being discriminated and had a fight with one of other employee. At the end they both get fired. He was working in Logistics. Because he lost his job and was going through rough times a friend of him introduced him to it. Yet soon after with all the stress and struggle he was going through. He got addicted. Soon after when we first started dating. 2 weeks later i learned the whole story when the craving kicked in. I was shocked but i was also in love. I can’t let go of a person that i love. I promised that i will be there for him. I had my savings and i had a good job. I was in the travel industry. Soon before i could realize my partner become more agitated failing to find job and being in this situation. Even to the degree that his car soon to be taken away because of the debt. While i was handling both him and my job i was also getting stressed way too much. Some days failing to work properly. I had my savings and at that time i thought that i could help him with money issues. Yet both my debt and his grown bigger as he got more and more anxious without a job and the drug cravings getting worse. Soon I also ran out of money the savings i had trying to solve my and his debt. And the 1 year that we are in a relationship everything was going worse and worse as he was now living with a friend who does drugs and that i don’t live alone. Some people may say that i should have left or ended the relationship. Sorry i am in love and i always believed in him. Despite everything there came 2019. And with 2019 the stress of my life and burden took away my job. As we ran out of money we tried to do Airbnb and side jobs to keep float. Always being behind on rent and the money demand increasing from my partner. And that night came. He started asking me questions and now started to think that i am a person who is scamming or stealing his money and i am the reason that he lost everything. Day by day it gone worse. The two person who loved each other now dark times have come. At that time i did not much know about drugs and what they can do. One night as he was again asking me if i am stealing from him to the degree if i was in a international scam organization. That night got psychical. I ran to the police without my phone as he confiscated it. The first time I went to the police and explained they already knew what was going on. But I also didn’t wanted to go to police for a long time because I can’t see anything happen to him. So i decided to keep silent and work it out. And that’s when everything was lashed out. Apparently he was cheating on me with someone else for over half a year with drugs involved. And with his paranoia grew he saw me as enemy. I even had to take out loan to cover for him. That was the worst night of my life when i learned that. I cried for so long. All my 2018 and 2019 got wasted. I lost everything. I lost myself and he got more fallen into cravings. And one day he came to my door. He got aggressive and nothing I say made him believe that I loved him more than anything. And then what happened next was either the end or the new beginning. Police came with a Mental Health Care officers. Which on spot was manage to put him under the Mental health act and take him into a mental hospital. I got devastated but I knew maybe the hospital is the one thing that can help him. With the level of his aggression they put him into the highest level. And medication, craving and all the struggling process started. First I could not visit him as I think he would hate to see me thinking I put him there with his paranoia. I still visited him hospital after a week later. And then that day close to end of 2019. He first time said sorry to me. I saw the man I fall in love with again. The medication the doctors were giving were slowly started healing him. But still he was not allowed to leave. When he said sorry to me all my 2 years of struggle was there but I promised to be beside him. And I visited him almost for 2 months everyday between 10am -8pm visitor hours till he got fully healed. For him to not feel alone. Because i knew when he saw me he smiles. Struggling 2 months of rehab he was totally clean and the medication he was taking is working. I forgot the mention the first time i went to see him. His doctor said have I heard of Pychosis. That’s what happened. He got paranoid and it targeted me as I am the closest. After struggling 2 years when he got out of the hospital we came home. I am a person that always believe in second chances and people deserve love. To judge is easy. To love is hard. Since that they after so much struggle he is a recovered drug addict and I have gone over anxiety disorder with this incident.
Now Since December 2019. We are a happy couple. We struggled love each other and made it happen. Now trying to fullfil one of our dreams. Open up a plant shop show people that you can achieve with hardwork. The business that we are trying to build and the debt we are trying to clear from our past. I wanted to share our story to help us get a second chance in our life. From paying to rent the paying the car debt, The loan and now that we want to register a plant business and get a retail store. Thank you for anyone who stayed for this long to read.
