Megera - I can relate to your situation in another way. I have an alcoholic cousin with lots of mental illnesses. Any time someone in the family is sick or has a set back it is his excuse to "fall off the wagon" and say oh woah is me... Then he will say "it wasn't my fault, I was just so worried about
x that I couldn't control myself..." I don't really tell him anything about
my life. I try to only talk about
neutral topics with him.
