This blog-space is for anyone who suffers from having a family member struggling with an addiction.  My mother has been an alcoholic my entire life and over the past several years, she has chosen to cut me out of her life.  Follow me as I detach myself, explore the concept of “mother”, and re-conceive what it means to be a family.  To accompany my offline memoir writing, I will post weekly with the hope of emboldening others to know they’re not alone.
