At the suggestion of my therapist and prompting for years from many other people, I finally went to an Al-Anon meeting. For those of you not familiar with Al-Anon, it’s similar to AA but it’s for the family and friends of alcoholics. I went and explained my situation with my Dad. For the first time, I talked in a space where I felt like someone understood me totally and knew my pain and heartbreak. I’m actually really excited for my next meeting!
