    Just A Child

    I met my husband when I was sixteen, seems like a lifetime ago (almost ten years). I think I loved him from the start. We got married when I was eighteen. He was my everything at that time I was at a difficult time in my life. I was either going to go really bad or really good. He made me good. After we were married he started driving a truck, made good money. When I found out I was pregnant we could afford for me stay home with our baby girl. Then I found out he was having an affair, he convinced me stay. I went back to work actually as a Comm. Officer for a local police department. Went back to school as a Criminal Justice major, I was going to be a Parole Officer. The last year he changed. He became moody, and aggressive but never physically violent. I became scared that it was going to become physical, so I left. I've been on my own about a month now. I just found out today that for the past four to five years he has been smoking meth. I had no idea, it's my job to know, and I didn't. That's what hurts more than anything else. I guess I just didn't want to know. Looking back there were a lot of signs. The late nights with no sleep, being gone so much, the odd occasional chemical odor, the severe acne; I could probably go on forever. I don't know if I will ever get over the lies, and the fact that he has gone against everything that I am about now. It's my job, I should have known.
