MENDED BY MATTHEW WEST
My mom recently moved in with us to get back on her feet. I have always known she is an alcoholic, has been as long as I can remember. Having her live here really hit it home for me, and due to my past and boundaries I have set in my life, I had to say something to her. I told her with love that drinking wouldn't be allowed in our home, and I also told her she is an alcoholic. She disagrees but said she would honor my request and not drink while living with us. It's only been two days and she has made several snide comments about how she isn't drinking and she's not an alcoholic. I just found a bottle of rum in her room half gone. I'm hurt, sad, mad, and terrified to tell her I found it and that unless she seeks help she has to go. Please pray for strength for me and that I can keep peaceful and calm. Please pray that God shows her the truth of her illness and she would seek help. Pray for our relationship. I don't want to lose my mom.
