I just can't take it around here anymore. But this is my house and I'm not leaveing for nobody. He comes home and has to pick a fight with everyone in the house. I don't care who it is. He just dosen't want me to be close to anyone. I think he feels that I not giving him enough attition, if I'm giving it to my granddaughters or anyone else. He wants to stay drank all the time and highed up and I wish he would stop. But all he is doing is trying to do is kill himself and I wish he would stop. I just can't take all of this anymore. I need some peace and I wish they all would give it to me and try and get along.

Sounds like you have a really tough situation in your house. In my opinion your granddaughter and your boyfriend are the problem that causes you to stress. Maybe your boyfriend is right in some way but like you said he is always drunk and high plus he don’t want you to be close to anyone. Your relationship is not healthy. You should get some help or try to talk to him. Better yet, talk to both of your granddaughter and to your boyfriend to work things out. If things don’t work, you have to get rid either your boyfriend or your granddaughter. Your stress would prolong if you don’t take action. Leaving your toxic environment for awhile would help you to relax and decide the things you have to do.

Check out a local womens cnter sweetie and get some help for yourself. It sounds like you really need it. I know what it is to live with constant stress. I think that you will be able to get the support you need if you contact a center and ask for supportive therapy. You should not leave the house. Unless you feel he will get violent. Consult an attorney.

We are not married. This night that he started the fight he was in the right, even though he was drunk and went about it the wrong way. My oldest granddaughter is 20 years old and should have a job and supporting herself. And we shouldn't be giving her money to go out with this one and that one. And to buy her minutes for her phone and her smokes she should be doing it herself.But nethier one of them need to be putting me through all of this.

It sounds like to me that you need to leave or get rid of him. No one has the right to control another person by saying who they can talk to and who they can't. I hope that he doesn't fight with you in front of your grandkids as that can really mess with a kids' mind and they don't need that. If he is drinking and getting high, he needs help!

no, he dosen't. But one is 20 years old and he was right about two things she needs to get a job and get up and help me around the house. Instead of laying around sleeping all day or being with this one or that one. And the other is 15 years old and he is not complaining about her, she is not the problem.
