Am I Allowed to Be Angry?

Is that "legal" when you are caring for an alcoholic?

I cried last night when I went to bed. I cried because my mother had just gotten up from one of her "naps" and it was 11PM and the first thing she did was fix a screwdriver and light a cigarette. Am I allowed to be mad that my mother is killing herself and doesn't care? Can I be mad that I'm trying so hard to make her healthy again and she just doesn't give a sh*t?

I think it's time I called Al-Anon. I'm the child of an alcoholic and I need help.

I am so sorry Linda... this is not an easy road you are on. Let the tears flow.. they are a release. Al-Anon may be a good idea. ((hugs))

Yes, you are allowed to be angry, and Al-Anon can be a good resource for you to have someone to talk to who is or has gone through the same things you're going through now.
