This has been a really hard trip home for me this Christmas. Hard for my friends and family too. I will spare you the details, but I will say there is a silver lining.
I am glad that I am sober this time. It is not easy. Last time I came, I broke another good sober run I had going. It gets stressful.
But if I am drunk, I can’t…
Baby sit or
Help my loved ones.
I am constantly on the verge of tears or vomiting, but not from alcohol. So that is a good thing.
Daphne I am so sorry you are going through so much. I’m glad you are sober and here. I don’t have the words to help you feel better. But I’m sending you love
Thanks for letting me vent guys. Your kind words mean a lot. My family is not always so kind to me, even though I am really doing everything that I can for them. But I love them and I am grateful,that they are still with us.
That sounds very frustrating and stressful and hard for you. I am glad you are sober and venting here. Your family is lucky to have such a kind and compassionate person as you there to help them thru.
Your strength and sobriety is inspiring
This is a great place to vent and seek support, we are proud of you!
All families have a degree of dysfunction, because families are made of people…
And people are dysfunctional.
True. I have to be empathetic and forgiving and patient. I am not always easy to deal with either. And I have not been home since 2019.
I’m sorry, sometimes it’s hard to stay sober but you have a good run going. We are all here to support each other.
