I currently live in a toxic environment where I know my husband needs some help. He doesn't believe he has a problem. I see him spirialing more and more downward- for the past year and a half. We don't do anything as a family and can barely eat at the table together. He won't take Prozac and refuses counseling (we can't afford anyway) ... this all stems from an unfortunate job elimination from an executive level position - he has fallen hard. I'm afraid we will never replace the lost income and he is older (almost 64 now) and the discrimination is palatable for older workers. No one wants an older worker and doing minimum wage jobs is humilating for him. This situation is also horrendous for our teenagers and with that, it puts me on the 3rd rail. I am working...24/7 but it's still not enough. I am at my wits end. We don't dare speak to each other or we will fight like electric barb wire. I hate the idea of ripping my kids hearts out with a divorce, but it just might be the best thing for all of us. Anyone else out there experiencing this quagmire of a problem? This rotten economy has really ruined lots of families because their is no movement in the job market. It's like an opportunity-less economy. I'm just lucky we can live in different places of our house.
