Caller shared her discouraged about her daughter who suffered a stroke following an attack, and is now disabled ...but has also turned to alcohol.
It's difficult to watch loved one suffer. Watching them do so while addicted to alcohol and/or alcohol crushes the stoutest of caregiver hearts. This mother and I chatted for a bit on what her role is and isn't ...and what she can do and can't.
Sometimes, as caregivers, we must give firm boundaries ...but turn away to not show the hot tears that fill our eyes.
Yet, there is a path to safety for caregivers of addicts/alcoholics. We talked about it on this call.
