When people are in severe depression, Johnny84, their intellectual functioning levels are lowered; it's as if they are living in a "fog". They
really don't know too much about
how destructive drugs are in the long run, and they don't really care at that point. This is something else you need to discuss with your psychiatrist; your children are not too young to be able to understand that saying "no" to drugs and alcohol may save them from great difficulties in life.
You have to teach them for them to learn these things.
I've been thinking about
you a good bit this A.M., and I think it wouldn't hurt if you printed a copy of all this material and put it on a desk somewhere in your home where your wife is likely to see it.
She's actually in an illegal situation now using drugs that may constitute a felony drug charge against her. It's very dangerous to be involved in that kind of irrational thing.
She may not even know the serious legal difficulty she is in right now.
Maybe you should think about
getting the police involved for her own
life's sake. You have a lawsuit against the person providing her with drugs, as you probably know--charges? Contributing to a felony drug
use charge and alienation of affection of your wife.
Otherwise, you need to talk all of this out with your psychiatrist; he needs to know the truth about
what's happening in your home and
will offer you his best advice about
what to do. Don't endanger yourself or the children by trying to intervene in the drug charges. Let the professionals manage that completely. You need to know, too, that information which you provide to a psychiatrist regarding criminal activity is a requirement for him/her to report to the proper authorities in some states. I don't think they are protected as one might be in the hands of an attorney. States may differ in that regard, however. You
are in territory now that we are not permitted by the rules here to discuss.
Take care of yourself and the children now and be careful.
