Saturday, when i walked into the door from a long day of work, i was met with news that a good friends step mother ( whom also took me in as a step son 6 years ago with the lunacy between my own mother and myself) passed away in her sleep that afternoon. I quickly collected my friend and drove her to her fathers house in...

I broke a cardnal rule for myself. I reconnected with my mother after 5 years because of my health. To be completely honest, i did it because i was ready to die from my stomach ordeals and wanted her to know that i didnt hate her and still loved her. She came full throttle back into my life and convinced me that florida was where...

I can empathize with you. Alcohol addiction runs on both sides of my family, a big part of why I don't drink often at all. I can see myself easily succumbing to that. One of my parents is a functioning alcoholic, they don't drink until they get home from work but when they do it's many drinks and tokes. What bothers me most is that is how I was raised. When I voiced my concerns and dislike for it, I was told it's none of my business and it doesn't affect me. My best friend is a heroin addict and has chosen that lifestyle over his friends and family. We haven't spoken in I don't know how long, he also surrounds himself with enablers. At one time I enabled him, indirectly, and I was in denial about it. Addiction is such a selfish act, just know none of it is your fault and no matter how much you want her to change she only will when/if she's ready.

That's pretty intense. Alcoholism kills.ย 

TToday is my first day back to work since my stomach issues. Saw my new GI doctor yesterday and i am encouraged by not only his demeanor, but his candor as well. He wants to be fully aware of what i am going through before suggesting possible treatments plus was honest of his opinions of the care, hospitals, and various treatments for my conditions. He...

Well 2016 is over. Thankfully! I started the year off in the hospital and ended the year the same way. Christmas eve i was sick with stomach issues and went to the ER. The issues were the same as i had been having all year and again, i end up staying multiple nights. This time, however, i only threw up and held no food or...

I think that's why we moved to the sticks and I'm very selective on who I'll be around. I wish the very best to you and hope with all of my heart that despite what is going on you will find some peace with your past and current ongoings. I know it's quite difficult I truly do. But once you let go you find a bit of freedom to just be. Sending lots of love my friend. Focus on the present moment find a journey to find yourself. In that you will find your way. I was once told I can't save anyone but myself. It's good to be there for your mom but you can't save her unfortunately. You can only take care of yourself and in that you can be healthier and better for others. ๐Ÿ’š you are an awesome soul. Things have a way of working out. They are just trying to teach you something. Once you find it and learn from it you'll move forward. Big hugs!

Oomph. I hope you get everything you wish for and more. As for my wishes... I just hope the world doesn't deliver itself the death blow next year. You're always welcome in our snug little country!ย

My mother is an alcoholic. she doesn't drink socially, she drinks daily and to a horrifying extreme. I have seen the level of her vodka bottle in the fridge and she is drinking over a liter of vodka a day. To put that into perspective, a liter is 33.8 ounces of liquid. A mixed drink by Indiana law will only have 1.5...

I'm so sorry, addiction is a horrible disease but you have to remember you can't make someone get better, they have to choose to get better.ย 
lamarmelade:
a disease unfortunately! but the problem never comes out of nowhere, so there is a reason! she's your mom, give her a drop of more love and more likely to say you love her, distract her that there are forces, it is hard, but one she did not exactly get out there! I liked your photos with Grandma! I want you to smile three ๐Ÿ˜‰

I drove into work today to hear the news of shootings in Munich. The news was devistating because that is not how i remember the city. Munich is ling considered the safest city in all of Germany. When i was there, i was welcomed in all areas of the city, but found three friends who took me in, when in all honesty they didnt need...

All i have thought about this last week is when i make this move to Florida in late August, looking to start my own kitchen and get back to being me. Recipies and...
