hi Mich, sounds like you are making the next right choice. Usually we have made life so overwhelming ( by adding to the already overwhelming factors in our life) that it comes down to just trying to make the next right choice. One step at a time. You have taken quite a few, the debit card being the latest. Finding a good therapist that will put the focus on you sounds like another good step. It is not uncommon for the strong care taker type personality to succumb to gambling addiction. I would say that describes me as well. A few others here I know also. I think part of it is that no one is taking care of us the way we take care of them. I’m glad to hear that your husband is being so supportive and was able to step in and take over the finances. You can do this! Just keep focusing on the next right choice for you and your recovery. All the best, Laura
