Al-Anon Friends needed
I have a husband who occassionally over drinks and is impossible to deal with! There is a need for a group for those suffering from an alcoholic family or friend. I requested a group for us but it still has not been made a separate group. What do you think? My personal concerns will be made later.
Thank you for your comments.
Sad but, TRUE!!!
So glad you shared that and hope this is read by many...You have described exactly what happens and the addict in our lives, stays strong in their disease as long as there is someone absorbing the emotional wreckage of the illness...We do what we know and so common to go from an alcoholic Family of origin to a marriage of the same...We really believe we're either doing something different or have a handle on what needs to be done and zap...We're toast!!!
This is a great example why the whole family needs to be in recovery and not just the chemically dependent person...Everyone plays a part, needs help and support...So glad for your awareness and recovery...Addiction will suck the life out of anyone close by...
It was hard for me as I'm the only one who got the help..My family thought I was the crazy one and I became the black sheep should we say..In time I saw the truth as the pain let up..I was finally get healthy in my life and seeing how I took the blame, shame and weight of the family disease upon my shoulders..I was so tired, sick and in and out of the doctors with nothing wrong with me..It was horrible..I was so depressed and full of anxiety I just never knew any different as that is all I knew all my life..That roll is the roll I grew up in and lived all my life..It work until I just could not do another day and that is when I hit the halls of Al Anon..My family is still doing there dance and I have a healthier and better me..I don't dance unless I have good music playing in the house...I don't go into the ring and I don't fight anymore..I have boundaries and I stand up for me as I FINALLY SEE I MATTER.. I hope and pray the same for anyone out there searching for recovery!!!
