Family of Six~~ Mom overspends anon
mother and wife with depression and spending addiction problem

Family is suffering because of mom's selfish behaviors

Hi everyone,
I'm lost and don't know where to go. I have a problem with over- spending, and being sneaky about it. I've tried to stop so many times, and I'm sure my husband has a hard time believing I want to stop. I feel so badly for him, the pain and distrust he feels. He won't talk to me now. He's told me before he'd divorce me if I kept this up.
I feel bad for my children, who need things, and there isn't the money, but when I want something, I find the money.
I got caught today, and am grateful, because I can feel the reality of the situation, rather than going on in my own little world, thinking only of myself and my petty little wants.
I know I need to trust God more than I have, I know He will provide the best answer to this dilemma. It's hard trying to maintain a connection with Him, while I feel so scared and scattered.
Please send your prayers for this family~ I'm so desperate for a change. Thank you.
