My alcoholic mother
Posted by Natty on 13 August 2014.
This is my first time talking about this on this kind of thing . The story is about 6 years ago my father committed suicide . It left my mum me 18 at the time and my younger sister 17 in a state of shock . My mum took to drink and will not accept help . She has moved away from me and cut off contact . I recently had a miscarriage at 19 weeks and tried to carry on getting in contact left messages etc but nothing . That was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do and had no support from her. I'm so angry and upset ! Just want her to explain herself or do something but she just wants to ignore me . I don't understand .
