Have you ever just wanted your life to end?
I don't know what I did to deserve this, I have always thought of myself as a pretty decent and good person, but apparently I pissed off the universe sometime, somewhere.
I give. I'm done.
My husband had a Boy Scout event on Saturday so he was gone all day. In case you aren't aware, we had two Boy Scouts for a while, they quit. My husband keeps going. Of course he does. If he is there, he doesn't have to be here. This happens almost every weekend. I BEG him not to leave me with him and he just chuckles. He is not as awful to him as he is to me and I am Jacob's target. He attempts to pit him against me through lies and when I tell him Jacob did XXX and then Jacob gives him Yes, Sir, No Sir, he gives me the side-eye. Years. Years of this.
Jacob started screaming at 9:54 because "It is 6 fucking AM I shouldn't have to empty a dishwasher before daylight!" and kept going. Anytime I attempt to get help from my husband his response is to call the cops. Everytime. This time I didn't even call him. I called the police. The short version of this story is the cops were complete assholes and actually had him record them telling him that until he graduates we are legally obligated to him and CANNOT kick him out.
Seriously. They seriously did that.
The cop in October told us we could evict him at 18. I guess that is not a thing.
Also, you need to go through the local government to have him evicted and he has thirty days after the forty-five days it takes to complete the eviction process. He has squatter's rights.
Today, he missed the bus.
A solid hour of stomping, cussing, slamming doors, throwing things, beating on the other kid's doors, spitting, splashing toilet water, peeing on the floor. The three of us locked in our rooms. My husband, of course, is at work. He would never behave that way if he were here.
When I finally "get up" since I need to get these other kids dressed and out the door, he bellows at me that I need to "get my ass up and take him to school". Oh yes! Let me get on that! I said no. Act Two commenced.
So here we are. He can walk to school. He walks home every day. He just won't because my lazy ass should be driving him. He called my husband, of course, told him a bunch of lies so that guarantees our evening should be just as pleasant as our morning. I guess he'll stay here all day long cussing and screaming and destroying whatever he can whenever he wants because I was told specifically the police could not help me. I told them he might kill us one day and that bald ass fuck just shrugged.
I am done. I am just fucking done. I do not know where to go from here. I just know I cannot continue. This "child" is never going anywhere. He won't graduate now because he knows he can live here forever if he doesn't. He doesn't have to work, doesn't have to contribute, doesn't have to pay bills, he just stays here every fucking single day of his life and abuses us and is allowed to do so. If he were my husband those cops would be encouraging me to leave, it's my child so now I can't? AND I need to work and support him?
I understand the desperation suicidal people feel. You feel trapped with no one to turn to and no where to go and the complete and utter unhappiness just buries you. I try. I try to fix this. Everyday I try to fix this. Everyday of the past 18 miserable years but it never gets better. At least before I always had an out. I knew the day would come that we did not need to keep him here, something to look forward to (and I realize that looking forward to the day you kick your child out is pretty perverse), and now.....it's not there. Our sentence has been extended.
It will never end. I have been given life without parole. And I don't even know what I did.
Let It Go
