I've joined this forum hoping to talk to someone that can relate as I know there will be alot of people out there in the same or similar situation as me and my family.
My dad has been drinking alcohol for as long as I can remember (I'm 29) He's never been a violent alcoholic, growing up my mum was a stay at home mum looking after 2 kids while my dad worked and financially supported us which is what he uses against my mum if she ever tries to get him to stop drinking or refuses to get his alcohol from the shops. So he could be mentally abusive at times.
Fast forward a few years, his health has really gone down hill, he has cirrhosis of the liver, his memory is really bad, he has seizures, he's always in pain and can hardly walk, my mum has to help him around the house but he still drinks and won't give up, it's like he's just given up on life and doesn't care if he dies.
I just don't know what to do anymore, one minute I'm angry at him because of everything my mum has to deal with then the next I feel sorry for him because he has this horrible addiction.
Is there anyone else in a similar situation?
(sorry for rambling)
