And I have definitely questioned myself- did I spend the money and forget? Could I have dropped it? Could my brother have taken it? I do feel crazy sometimes when we argue even if I have a valid reason to be upset, and one thing he always gets mad about is that I don't trust him. I don't really believe that he's trying to hurt me, but that he's trying to protect himself. Which I know is selfish of him. We've only been married 6 months... I don't know what to do.
I would think about leaving out for my own security.

That a great idea! I think that having a therapist could help you with your feeling.

((((TheOutsider90)))) I'm sorry you have to deal with this. You have every right to be angry... it's likely he's manipulating you. I'd reconsider this relationship... I'm so sorry

Skeezyks, you just helped me realize something very important. It is better to guide folks to read up on topics they would benefit from instead of telling them what to do.

TY TY TY TY TY!!!!!!!!!

My brother has been struggling with addiction for a few years now. It's gotten very bad lately and it's been wearing on the whole family, which I'm sure has not made me very easy to live with. The other day I confided in my husband that I always blamed myself for my brother's drug use (because I'm the older sister, and I'm supposed to protect him. And because he started experimenting when I went away to college).

Anyways, some background- my husband used cocaine before we started dating. I told him back then that I didn't want a relationship with someone who was using drugs. Lately, I've been wondering if he's using it again. I could be paranoid because of my brother's problem, but he's been sketchy with his phone and staying out with friends late (and no, I don't think he is cheating). A couple days ago 80$ went missing from my wallet. I was already stressed and started asking him if he took the money, because there was really no one else who would have. He denied it and got very defensive when I asked if he was doing coke again. He yelled at me for not trusting him. What hurt the most, was that he said I am going to drive him to do drugs. I just can't take it anymore... This isn't the first time money had gone missing. It could have been my brother before, but he wasn't around this past time. I'm already losing my mind over trying to save my brother, I don't think I can deal with any more drugs...
TheOutsider90, I am so sorry you are in that stressful situation!! I am glad you are here, though, because lots of folks here can relate to your situation and provide with with feedback and ideas on what to do next. And I see you are getting great feedback already. Bless your heart, I hope everything works out for you.

Sounds to me that he is doing drugs again. Knowing you want to be in denial because you don't want to deal with it.

But as you said 80 dollars went missing and your brother was not around.

As far as your brothers choices to do drugs...You could not follow him to college and be his support or live his life for him.

You have to realize that God or a higher power is in control for the fate of your brother and not you...I had to realize this for one of my sons.

And the minute I got super burnt out finally after many years of loving, protecting and saving my son....I one night said....I give him to you God...because I can no longer drain myself of this wasted energy concerning worrying about him every second.

You can only make choices for yourself....You can chose to stand by your lying husband...or you can chose to ask him to do something about his "problem" HIS problem...just like your brothers problems are your brothers problems.

Or you may have to make a choice to remove YOURSELF from the situation YOU have control ONLY OVER YOUR CHOICES and you can chose to be happy or be in the constant chaos that drug addiction brings with it.
That is great advice!
