I'm kind of new to this, so I don't know if this has been a topic lately, but in an alanon group I go to one of the discussions I attended was about shame and I was so surprised because I have been living with unbearable shame since I was a child. I didn't want my friends to come to my house because of an alcoholic relative that lived with us, there was always something crazy going on. And when my husband became sick and lost his job because of his drinking I was so ashamed I didn't want to let anyone know, but now I realize that talking to people helps so much. Alanon is changing my thinking in so many ways.
