Hello @Mommato3 thanks for sharing your story. It sounds like you have been through so much and are in a really difficult position. Protecting your family and your career is understandably very important to you. You sound like a strong, loving and committed parent, and it must have taken so much strength to deal with the trauma in your past while looking after 3 children.
When something threatens to take these away that must be very confronting and scary to deal with. It sounds like you might benefit from talking to a health professional or a counsellor about your situation. I can see that you're not located in Australia, maybe it would be worth searching online to see if there is a similar service near you that may be able to provide you with more support. Have you and your partner ever had any couple’s counselling? It may also be helpful for the two of you to talk through your situation together with a third party.
