im glad to have found this group. It doesn't matter where you're from, what walk of life you're in, we are all sharing one common thread... our alcoholic husbands. i need to learn more about the disease. I'm just now (after being together almost 19 years) being able to say, and admit, that my husband is an alcoholic. He's also a type I diabetic, which scares me more than anything. Alcohol is bad enough for an otherwise healthy body. But my husband is not healthy to begin with. I get scared sometimes.
