I’m 36 years old. My mother has been alcohol dependent for my entire life.
I really want to share my story with you.
I have experienced situations that most people won’t ever even think about but I’ve been trying to get through life but I have now found myself struggling to cope without drugs.
I detest alcohol and I have stayed away from it as I have a huge addictive personality.
I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 12.
I was prescribed ritalin but stopped taking medication when I turned 16.
I started using cannabis to self medicate.
I’ve had a terrible childhood and I am suffering from the traumas and abuse I received during my childhood.
My mother has literally broken me and has done the most horrific things to me.
She recently had her leg amputated and down to alcohol abuse.
She has a blood clot that could move at any moment and it would kill her. she’s now a ticking time bomb.
my brother and I have paid her mortgage for over 15 years as she nearly lost the house.
we were only supposed to pay for a year to get her back on her feet.
covid came and it rocked my world. I lost my own home, car, job as id just joined a new company at Xmas just before covid arrived.
Whilst loosing everything I still managed to pay my moms mortgage. It made sense for my partner and I to move in with my mother as we were always there anyways plus its a 3 bed and she was just using the down stairs.
