My mum was an alcoholic for as long as I can remember. I have been through years of heartache, anger and resentment. Despite losing everything-friends, family, job, house she was in denial till the bitter end. She lost her battle and died in August. Her post-mortem has confirmed her death was entirely alcohol related. I don’t know how to feel, I’m angry, sad and dare I say relieved and with that I feel guilty. I question why? Could I have done more? I suppose my question is how have others overcome the grief? It’s not like normal grief as I have guilt / resentment. I want to remember the happy times but they were so long ago that’s it’s hard to look back that far. I can’t open up to people as most people don’t understand.
