A note about blog changes

There is a new tag for posts called Al-Anon. Obviously these posts are about Scott's alcoholism and its effects. Al-Anon posts will have the comments turned off entirely. They are not written for the reader; instead they serve as therapy for the writer: an attempt to collect and expel thoughts and emotions while dealing with the disease of a loved one. It is for my well-being, and not your entertainment.

With that said, I can always be contacted through e-mail. Threats and judgments will not be read.

The official Al-Anon website is located here.

I considered going once, but my brother wouldn't join me. I eventually never went ... I think it's healthy and brave that you are going/or writing for yourself. :)

I had a friend who went for years and found it really, really helpful, Good luck!

I'm glad you're doing this... very glad. And anyone who emails you being judgmental deserves to have their email displayed prominently on this blog.

Smart move. Gotta protect yourself. Even though I don't know you, I want you to be healthy and happy. Hope my comments have never made you feel judged. (All 2 of them!)

Good for you for being assertive on this one. No one really knows your relationship, but you two :)

Sarah,

I am so glad you have become involved with this, and wish you all the luck in the world going forward!

Best of luck!

Wishing you and Scott all the best with this xx

Goodluck to you and Scott. It's a wise move to remove comments. You don't need people criticizing & being rude right now. Just focus on helping Scott through this.

I would be lying if I didn't say I was judgmental. That being said, I want to wish you luck in dealing with whatever situations you are in, postive and negative!

Good for you, Sarah! So glad you've found a way to feel comfortable on your own blog again...I was afraid you were going to stop writing, and that would have really bummed me out for many reasons. I wish you all the luck in the world that Scott is able to find peace with himself and his life...and that you are able to be there for him without draining yourself in the process. Hang in there!

Good for you Sarah, I had to move blogs entirely to be able to speak freely. I think its great you are going to write for yourself this is YOUR space after all. Good luck and a big virtual hug x
