alcoholic mum in rehab
Posted by chowebella on 19 December 2015.
New to this ans feeling rather overwhelmed, thought sharing my story may help. Ive recently found out my mum is an alcholic, recently seperated from my dad she turned to the bottle and things spiraled pretty quickly. To see my mother so low she even considered suicide made me take action and we admitted her to a detox and rehab unit this week. Only now I feel like the worlds worse daughter, i think about her every second of the day and its breaking my heart. She rings and desperately wants out of there which hurts me so much. I keep telling myself its for the best but the feelings of guilt and sorrow are so overwhelming its taking every ounce of strength I have not to jump in the car and go pick her up. Shes been in detox for 3 days now, does it get easier? Will she hate me for this forever?
