"It was a great night! Can I call you tomorrow?", he said. I still remember the day I met the love of my life. How could I forget? It was 10, no almost, 11 years ago when some friends and I had decided to go out and have some drinks. I'm from a small town near the border with Mexico. We had decided to go down south and have a good time. But right at the last moment, we were on our way to our destination when my friends cousin changed her mind and direction. That decision changed my life forever. That night I met the love of my life. I went out to have a good time with my friends not to hook up with anybody. "Hey!" Ana whispered. "That guy has not taken his eyes off of you since we got here." She giggled. I told her that I didn't care, I was there to have a great time with friends. All of a sudden he was tapping my shoulder inviting me to dance. I told him I didn't know how to dance and advice him to ask my friend. He said, "but I want to dance with you." I looked up at him and he had the most gorgeous eyes with long eyelashes and pouty lips like Johnny Depp. He was so handsome I fell in love right that instant. The rest is history. We've been together almost 11 years and somewhere along the way he lost his path. He started to change. I didn't know it was an addiction that was taking him away from me. I didn't find out until 5 years ago about his addiction. I noticed little changes at first nothing big, but noticeable. It wasn't until last year that the big changes came forward. He would spend less time at home with his family and started spending more time with friends that I didn't even know. Obviously that let to fights and separations, but he ended up coming back and I ended up accepting him because I loved him. Then he cheated on me and then he started lying and stealing doing shady things. He stopped working and stopped being a husband and a father. He just changed. Today we are still together. I know he loves me and I know for sure I do too, I just don't know how to help him if he doesn't want to be helped. He was a loving partner, father, son and now there is no sign of that person who I fell in love with. I know there is a lot of people out there with the same problem I'm not the only one. Please I need a guiding hand as to how to handle this because it's getting to the point where I'm losing my mind. I just don't know what to do. Please help.
