My husband is in Alcohol rehab right now. We have been together for 18 years and Married for 9. My husband has (in his alcoholic state) painted quite a picture of me to his family. They blame me for his drinking and want him to come home with to them when he comes out. Now, I am a codependent, I know that, I am working on that since the "bomb" of rock bottom fell (Started Therapy and reading about codependency). I can see that I have enabled him because of my codependency, I realize that I don't think I was strong enough to face or confront what was going on - I however did not cause his alcoholism!! I have tryed to reach out so we could be a united support system for him - but there is a line in the sand. I do not want all of this drama to continue to go on after he gets out, How should I handle this??
