Please pray for me as I again face what nearly destroyed me via my father, then 9 years into our marriage and after 6 years again last night. I know it is an addiction, but its more than I can bear while sick myself, contending with sick children, a possible closing of dh's company and relocation of the company to Ireland (we are in the states and will not relocate) , financial troubles of said company which caters to the auto industry (nuff said)  and a special needs child with a condition so rare I have to explain it to the doctors!  Forgiveness is mandated I suppose, but restoration is a separate matter and I am so bloody DONE! Dh knew what I endured due to my father's same addiction to this 'stimulus', and we only barely survived when he admitted his own same addiction.

I can bear no more. My priest lives in another state and is elderly, so no help there. I need prayer that I don't do something wrong in my anger and hurt.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Last year I discovered that my dad had a secret that my brothers knew about, that he pulled my mom into, that it had been going on for many years, but it was hidden from me.  It was the reason why my brothers are not Christians.  I found out when it nearly blew my family apart.  But my parents have been working on it, and it sounds like they're doing much better than they were before.  My mom finally stuck up for herself and said she didn't want to do it anymore; the pastor said it was a no-no; it sounds like they finally got through to my dad.  So I hope to encourage you that there is still hope.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
