This is my first post and I will try to be as brief as possible. My wife had a brain anyuerism (spelling) about three years ago and since has been taking opiates off and on which has turned into opiate addiction. She is a registered nurse and has lost (been fired) two good jobs in the last two years with the last one being on 11-25-2007. Immediately after the job lose she decided that she needed rehab. She found one that she wanted to go to that has a good reputation, so I sent her to it. It is about 750 miles from our home so she flew down two Florida where it is located. There is a portion of the therapy that is called family group therapy. The therapist and my wife want me to come to Florida for four days for family therapy. Here is the issue. I have two jobs and a farm to take care of as well as the kids. There is also the issue of money, the cost of travel motel etc not to mention the bills for the rehab that will be coming in within a month or so. I am sure that insurance will pay alot of it, but not the entire amount. The therapist(s) and my wife act like this is no big deal and I should just head on down to Florida. I support my wife's recovery and will attend anything she wants to attend when she arrives home, but at the same time I have other responsiblities to my family as well. I don't think I am going to be able to make the trip. Am I being unreasonable? I feel terrible about not going, but I just can't afford it financially. Don't hold back let me know if you think I am wrong.

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...
