just back from holiday, went with good friends managed to i have to bury my gran. the vigil is tomorrow and serviceon monday. my mum got out hosp whilst i was away and was drinking heavily since. she fell yesterday and now has a black eye, her head stitched and eye stitched. i saw her today she was so drunk she just lay on the couch.
i did notmind in fact the reverse to plan my grans funerla myself,all i needed was her to be not know if she will make it.her arms areall covered in the large bruises where she has been bleeding.i got her clothes ready but will not know until tomorrow. i feel so hurt when i look at her.she has lost it,doctors told her if she drinks she will die,so she hits it hard. her partner now hands me a number of a care home who specialises in her type of care, she will never agree. iwant to be free of the worry,but do not think i will be.fingers crossed

Allie, it is good to hear from you!  I'm so glad that you were able to get away with friends for awhile.  You really needed that.  So sorry for what you came back to with your mom.  She is just killing herself.  I wouldn't count on her showing up for the funeral.  Truthfully, it may be best if she doesn't, as she would most likely be drunk.

Just know we are here for you.

Gentle hugs,

Hi Allie, So sorry that your grandmother passed. And that your are having to deal with your mom. But like Connie, I am glad that you were able to get away and have some respite from all the stress.

Take care..........thoughts and prayers.......
