Hello and thank you for reading. I am a 28 year old woman who lost both my parents early on from alcoholism. It was a very rough road watching the people you love walk down the dark path of alcoholism and watch their lives spiral downwards out of control. My mom passed away in 2009 at the age of 43 and my dad in 2013 at 52 years of age. I couldn't believe that I would ever lose both parents so young when I feel like I needed them most. The pain and anxiety that I am left to deal with are extremely devastating. I hope I can do anything I can to inspire addicts to change for a better outcome because not only are they hurting themselves but they are deeply hurting the people around them too. My parents left me alone in the world with nothing but emotional and mental pain that I must struggle with on a daily basis. Please if you are one of these people who need help I am here and I care because I would never want your family to suffer the same fate as me if I can help it. Your time is a blessing, thank you.
