My husband and i have only been married for 3 years and been seperated 15 months of the 3 years we have a 7 year old son together and i have a daughter that is 16. My husband has been a chronic drug abuser for over 30 years. I have been with him off and on for 10 years now. He is very hard to live withhe steals money out of my purse and takes bill money and lies about what he done with it or even taking it he is very verbally abusive and controlling, also he has a heart disease and hepatitis c he has had 17 heart catheterizations 13 stenths and a difribulater implanted in his chest he has 2 children form a provious marriage and has been in jail for failure to pay child support 7 times and owes 24,000 in back child support. He is disabled and drawing SSI. He has doctors that treat his heart problems but he still tries to deny the hep c . He is still doing durgs such as marijuana and i do believe the other drug of choice is crack, he doesn't do it in front of me and is very much in denial of the use but i know when he is messed up on drugs and that is usually when a good bit of money gets missing. We have lost several homes on count of his behavior and he has also ben in jail several times for fraudelent checks. Why is this man living in my home right now? because i have always had faith that one day someone other than me would realize his problems and help me get him help. I can't do it alone he refuses to listen to me an d he denies drug use and the fact that he has a problem. I am at my whits end and he is well on his way to the grave. If any one has any information at all that may can help I sure would definately appreciate it and i am very sure my 7 year old son would also, he loves his dad and worships the ground he walks on, but he in no way understands what is wrong with his dad nor do i
