It's 4 AM and I am unable to sleep....my family is destroyed thanks to my husband who has gambling addiction. Tonight he took all my money for mortgage and food and lost it ALL. This is not the first time that happened; however, this now is the end of our family as I run out of all my savings, RRSP, even hidden money around the house that he managed to find and spent. I don't know what else to do. I am desperate. I don't have a penny to pay anything, not even to buy a milk for the kids or get gas to go to work in a day. I am hoping there is goodness in the world and someone will help me, as I don't know what else I can do. I know it's not world's problem, and there are people who needs $ way more for more important thing, but I am lost. If you would like to know more details about my ordeal, I am willing to let you know, but it's just too embarrassing to share it with the world right now.
Update - we survived one week by begging for help from my brother in law who so generously helped me to pay for rent this month. My friend gave me some food; however, I was not able to eat too much anyway. Sold couple household items for gas money. Feeling weak, tired, old and helpless. Seems like nobody cares. Counting my options, which there aren't many. One solution is running in my mind, but that I don't want to consider, because I do not want my children grew up without their mother. Isn't there any goodness in the world anymore? Did people stop caring? Are we this insignificant? I just want to scream, but I do not have the power anymore. Life sucks
