Hello my friends
How I wish I wasn’t back here writing about the life I lead with an alcoholic son.
Why can I not write a nice upbeat blog about family’s, you know, day to day funny things and sometimes difficult things that happen?
I did start another blog. It’s all about positivity and how I am going to change my life for the better, I was so very determined.
I haven’t been back writing there for a while either.
So to explain, I took this blog off from view of the public because I had pointed my son towards the many useful blogs on here of recovering addicts. I found their blogs so inspiring and learnt so much from them, I thought he could too.
But I’ve come to realise that he’s not going to read them, and won’t find links to my blog, so although as I said I wish I wasn’t back here writing, in another way I am glad.
I know there are other family’s out there in my situation and it helps to write, to share, to get a response from people. Because the harsh reality is in real life, friends, colleagues, family, try to understand, want to listen a little, but they just don’t get it, don’t understand why, after so many years of dealing with Faiths alcoholism and its consequences I’m still there for him, in the background now, but there, I can never totally walk away.
So this is a quick post, at the moment my life is so very busy, I will write more and fill you in on what has been happening, there has been a lot, but tonight I just want to reach out again to my followers on here and say “hey, we are both still here and alive, surviving, getting by, let me know how you have been”
I should be cooking dinner, I will be in trouble, but, I’m so very glad I’m back blogging 👍
PS. Sorry I’ve not had time for pictures or checking my spelling etc, I just wanted to get this out there, and this is me.
