As a COA, I grew up in an environment where every day was uncertain.
Nothing that your mum did is your fault! It is NEVER your fault!
Scared and lonely is what she feels
It started when mum started to find beer bottles and wine hidden all around the house.
Are you feeling sad or maybe bad.
I didn’t tell anyone about the bottle, just kept it to myself as with everything else.
Don’t let something like this hold you back, it is their problem not yours.
The thing that keeps me strong is help lines and I realise I am not alone.
It was horrible. When she used to get up in the morning she acted as if nothing was wrong.
I had had no one to guide me or to tell me that it was not my problem or that she had one.
