Hello guys, I have a Husband that is addicted to the game Destiny, I never should have bought the game for him in the first place. It started as a friend of his from work wanted help with the game. So he asked for the game, I didn't really want to do it but he promised me it wouldn't become a problem. I bought him his Playstation with our taxes because he wanted one so bad. But shortly after buying it I noticed that he was gaming alot more, he had had a playststion while he was in the military and would game on his down time with his friends. I bought the playstation for the family not just for him but no one else ever gets to play it. Anyways, after he got the game Destiny we had made a deal, he would only play for 3 nights out of the week so as he gets his family time in as well. But after he got laid off, he started playing everyday. It seems like he's not even looking for work. Yes he is on unemployment but it is not enough to survive on and it won't last forever. I have to stay home to be with our special needs baby, but I'm starting to look for jobs myself. This is the second marriage for the both of us and we have 3 kids together. I am getting tired of taking care of everything that everyone needs and clean think of getting a job, but before I think about that I have to think about what I am going to do with our daughter, the other two kids are old enough to get their basic needs met and I don't worry about leaving them with him, just our smallest one! She's the one that needs the most, but I also think why do I need to go and get a job because of this game... WE (My Husband and I) agreed I would stay home and take care of the kids. I'm just getting tired of it. Last night was a big eye opener for me... my sister took our kids so that we could have a date night because I told her I really needed it. Well, his date night idea was to go for a walk... we went to his friends house so he could BS with the guy, I did talk to his wife and my friend but we were supposed to be spending time together alone. Then He came home and turned the game on, He's made so many NEW friends on that game. I can hear him Laugh and Joke with them and wish he would do that with me, when I get him to talk to me it like one word answers and such. I sit there and Cry and it seems like he doesn't care, I ask for him to come to bed and he litteraly throws a (BIG KID) fit. It really is driving me crazy and I feel so alone... I've been trying to get help for I don't like 6 months or so. I am glad I found this site I have been reading posts from others and think to myself this is me, this is how I am feeling right now. SO I thought I would share my story... just looking for help and support. Cause I have to think about more than just me, I have a special needs baby that needs more than this.
