This is hard to write. . But I really need some help on the situation. A couple of weeks ago my ex-husband tried to kill himself whilst he had our children to stay. He has the children to stay two nights every two weeks. I can't help but think that he is really selfish to do this because even now weeks later, when asked about how the children would have felt finding him, he just says "they would have to get over it."
I know how hard mental illness is as I have suffered all my life. I don't want to appear to be victim blaming but he is making this really hard. I first found out this had happened when children services rang and informed me. He is now no longer allowed unsupervised contact with the children because he refuses to get any help that is offered to him. He was given antidepressants and told me he put them in the bin however two days later I found out he's got them back out and start taking them but did not let me know this . I know some people may think that's none of my business but he was happy to let me believe he was getting no help whatsoever. I feel guilty for thinking and feeling the way I do but I've had to deal with him being manipulative throughout our whole relationship.
I just don't understand why he wouldn't want to seek treatment and get better for the sake of our children. All I've had to deal with since we have broken up is being bad mouthed and manipulated.
I don't know what more I can do I've been taking the children to his family and picking them back up afterwards so he can see them. He always throws my illness in my face however when I am ill I try my best to get better for my children. I feel awful, I don't know what to do, I don't know how to make this better, am I a bad person for thinking the way that I do?
I just can't stop thinking about how this would affect the children they are only 7 years old and 9 years old this whole situation would have traumatised them. They're struggling with the situation as it is and physically he is perfectly fine. But their routine has now been altered.
He just shows no empathy or remorse towards the children whatsoever and this is what I have a major problem with.
I have been in a relationship with my partner for the last 2 years. We got along great and after just 3 months we moved in together. I moved areas to be with him and moved into his house. I was so happy, made new friends and my life was good. A few months later I had terrible news about my mum having secondary breast cancer which devasted me. On her 70th birthday, my partner asked me to...
