I am an ACOA.My dad was an alcoholic who also suffered from a mental illness.He passed away in September of '06.For years,I struggled with unforgiveness toward him,but thanks to therapy,I emerged victorious.He and I made our peace before he died.We never addressed any of the "issues" but by then he had Alzheimer's and was on medication for his bipolar disorder,so he was very sweet at the end.I'm here to share my experience,strength and hope.However,I still struggle with what is considered "normal" and what isn't,I sort of have to guess at it.I'm 45 and have been on this search since 1994.
