I guess I should update about Te.
She got sober again and is back at work. So far so good.
The following weekend, she got invited to go to a ranch with a friend. I changed my tactic and this time, and instead of cutting her off, being angry and saying hell no… I just said okay.
and My mom did too. We would watch Dante and let her go. I mean, she was drinking with him, might as well keep him safe.
She ended up coming back the next day and picking up Dante.
Her boss talked to her and let her know if she needed more time, to let her know (I guess one good think about the pandemic). but she ‘s been working and doing well since.
they had her run her first IOP (intensive outpatient program) and told her they would like her to move up to case manager.
I talked to Keisha (who is working for me temporarily, who ironically hired Te = small world) and she told me the position would be Recovery Coach, and if she does that in 2 years she could move up to Coordinator!
So I just hope and pray her binge was a one and done…but this has happened a few times each year since she’s been back.
At least I’m not dealing with this AND that Abuser.
It really helped ME not having to deal with that. I was still stressed and anxious and sad, but not to the level HE made me by being so mean and nasty to me about it.
So even with this… life IS so much better.
