I was molested when i was very young and my parents divorced

I was molested when i was very young and my parents divorced when in was a year old. My dad was an alcoholic he went to treatment and now is sober. my mom and i have a very unhealthy relationship. she drinks a lot now. I ran away young and had a teen pregnancy in a very abusive relationship. I left with my two daughters and worked as a CNA until i was diagnosed with stage 2 brain cancer. this april i will be married with my husband for 3 years we are not in debt but we could be if i can't get my spending under control. sometimes i hide purchases or feel bad after i buy it. i am trying to stop spending but even though i dont need it i will obsess until i buy it or don't i just can't stop.

That sounds like a good plan. You've got a lot of awareness and that's so important.

So I would say since I have admitted and put up my credit cards and said it out loud that I had a problem and told my husband what I needed him to do to support me and not make me feel worthless when he talks to me about my shopping it’s helped. I am seeing a psychiatrist next week and than after that a therapist hopefully. I know it will continue to be a battle but if I take it one day at a time and fight the urges I get I know I’ll get through it!

Good for you, i have been through almost the same situations in my life. Ihave seen 8 shrinks in the last 25 years, i have tried to kill myself (four times)i have spurlged several times once it put me in jail, for fraud $125,763.41 was charged to 14 credit cards and 12 open accounts, i also do cutting the last time was about a month ago, (37 cuts), received 14 stitches. I will tell you that getting an shrink, is probably the best thing you can do, i hope you get great results from this seeing a shrink.. .
I am a psycho-affective disorder w/dual personalities. I have been married for 43 years and lately has been totally good to me, and helpful in all aspects of my life. I am sorry i am jumping all around but i hope you will follow thru seeing a shrink. I am glad you put your ccards away they can do such damage to a marriage. I know for a fact , i did jail time. I hope that the Good Lord will give you serenity, peace, understanding in your life. Things will definately get better for sure.
My prayers are with you, and see the shrink, and therapist in the near future.
