So my daughters father is a douchebag of massive proportions. We have been split up since 4/01, when I left after 6 years of terrible physical and emotional abuse.
In 3/05, he was arrested for child abuse when my daughter snuck the phone to tell me he was hurting her brother (not mine, I swear I'm not a Springer case). He was convicted and spent time in jail and didn't see her for two years.
Now, because of WA state and their insane swing towards fathers rights, he has visitation again. He's using every dirty trick in the book to get more time, and has accused me of being a drunk. I went through an evaluation which I was SURE I would pass with flying colors...I am a responsible mother with a great career and my drinking is limited to 1-2 times a month in social situations. Somehow their diagnosis was that I "abuse" alcohol.
This is half vent and half asking for help if anyone has any information that could help me. I'm shocked that this is their diagnosis. I honestly drink less than most people I know. If you want to flame, please restrain yourself because I totally can't handle it right now.
