I have decided to attend my first al-anon meeting tonight. Anxiety attack is already setting in just making the decision. Have chickened out many times before. I don't do well around people I don't know. I have been married to a functioning alcoholic for 20 yrs. He has had a job change about every 18 months to 2 yrs. Has always got another job right away, has done his best to support us and our 3 kids. I have tried too many times over the years to get him to quit or slow down, it really cuts into our budget. I guess today was the breaking point my psychiatrist has been telling me I would hit. He left his job Feb 12th,took a job delivering pizza to help pull us through til something else comes about. I suffer with CFS,Fibro,Anxiety and Depression, am on disability, cannot work. He left with my daughter today so she could go buy a car, they took my car which needed oil, she asked him if he had money for oil, he said yes, he stopped and bought a beer then told her she would have to buy the oil,knowing she was draining her account to buy the car. Why doesn't he understand, if we can't stay on top of the bills, why can we afford beer????

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
