On July 28 it was brought to my attention that my husband of two years had been selling our things to buy drugs. Somehow I didn’t even realize he used drugs, let alone had a problem bad enough that he’d be selling stuff to get them. My first reaction was to kick him out but the next day he came back and we talked. I told him that I’d be willing to take him back if he’d go to rehab. He swears he doesn’t have a problem and refuses to go. I love him more than words can do justice, but I have a daughter that I have to look out for. I can’t risk him bringing that crap in the house with her or him being on it around her. Unfortunately he was the primary source of income. I am a full time student going to school to be a dental hygienist and I work part time as a dental assistant 24 hours a week. I fear I am going to have to make some hard choices in the very near future to get by. I really don’t want to give up on an education that will provide financial security for my daughter and I. After this semester I have one semester left. I am currently paying almost $9000 a semester but hoping that without his income I will qualify for some financial aid next semester (will be my final semester). I also really do not want to sell my house, I know if I can make it through May when I receive my degree and get a job in dental hygiene I will have no problem affording it by myself. I have already eliminated all unnecessary expenses that I have and have become very frugal. But if I don’t get a little bit of help I’m going to have to quit school to work full time plus lots of overtime or put my home on the market and hope it sells in time for my daughter and I to live off the equity until I graduate in May. I can’t sit back and hope my husband comes to his senses and realizes how much he has to lose if he doesn’t get clean and what he’s putting his family through. Bills are coming due faster than money is coming in to cover them and what little we have left in savings after paying for my tuition and books won’t last nearly long enough.
