Big things are happening

My SIL is here visiting. Surprisingly this has been a very nice trip. We are going to have lunch together tomorrow just us girls. We need too, we have a lot to talk about. I have come to the conclusion after a very long time that my husband is an alcoholic. I am pretty sure of it and I think my sister in law believes it as well. Be ready it seems this blog is about to be active again. I am looking into finding Al Anon meeting in my area and also seeing what I can find out about our insurance covering counseling for me and maybe him if I can ever convince him to do it. I need to find a way to deal with this while not also messing my kids up for life. Wish me luck.

Good luck, mine is a functioning alcoholic and i've given up trying to get hime to go to any form of counseling or quit, I just police him the best I can.
I always tell him "If you push me to the brink and I leave - that's it. I'm not coming back."
Wishing you the best honey.
