Reaping the Hell Someone Else Sowed
I have been living with a hate filled - h a t e f i l l e d - rotten teenager for two and a half years. I have had my property damaged, stolen, destroyed, have been constantly called names and have had to parent the father to parent his son lest no parenting but screaming and yelling empty threats that do not correspond with reality persist so that I start to pity the delinquent who just got off probation for assaulting his mother because he turned 18.
This is soo bad because I spent 13 years of my life raising my son in a home where there was peace and no fighting between adults to raise a good kid. I gave up a lot to take care of a son the right way. I got no child support and parented my son appropriately. I got a good result. I got a good son.
I got pregnant by a man with a long standing job and whose wife left him. Everyone I met said this guy was a good guy. I was infertile most of my life and was taking a medication that, I didn't know at the time, caused fertility. So, I was in love and everyone said this was a good man. I married the man after we had our daughter but it was also at that time when the step son came to live with us after his mother had the delinquent arrested for pushing her during a fight they had. The mother gave the delinquent up during the court proceedings, over the assault, and said she didn't want him back. We ended up with the son so the dad wouldn't keep paying a thousand per month in fees plus paying the mother a thousand a month child support for a son she gave up. Once the boy got here, it took two weeks for me to start getting called names and for my property to go missing, property (which is mine) to start getting destroyed and for me to become the evil woman ruining the life of this boy.
Shortly after the boy came, my nice man turned into another person. The man I saw go through hell without loosing it during the divorce from his ex-wife, who everyone called a crazy on a rampage for 10 years, turned into a yelling, screaming maniac who is by far one of the most inept parents I have ever met. The son is rotten and filled with hate. I am parenting both of them. I have a great education, have worldly and personal achievements and now have a beautiful daughter and it is all tainted by the step-son and the man I married that I don't feel like I know any more.
