Since the death of my stepfather 5 years ago, my relationship with my mother has been very rocky. She has taken to drinking as a way of life and it is making her sick. My biological dad is dying from liver disease. I am a single mom with two little ones and have not used "vices" in 3 years to deal with this loss. However I have just been living day to day, procrastinating everything. I am now realizing that I need to set some higher goals and DO something for the sake of my kids, it just seems so hard without any support. I feel like I am waking up for the first time in years. I am not sure how close I want my kids to be to my mom or dad, knowing what they might go through if we loose them.
