My ex alienated my children from me for almost 3 yrs and there was nothing I could do about! During that time I was attempting to complete an RN course. It was like being in a pressure cooker and I did not pass by one point. Anyway, now I only have 2 semesters left of financial aid left (b/c I almost have a bachelor's degree in psychology - which is pretty much worthless) and that is not really enough to get a degree to get a decent paying job. I am broke my car is breaking down, my clothes are worn out and so am I. I have been going to AA meetings b/c I drank alcohol to cope. But I think this is where I belong. The people at AA want me to blame myself and I have enough sense to know when a person without guilt or remorse has destroyed my life - it wasn't me doing the crazy stuff.
