Hey Heels,

If she had gone to Al-Anon, she might have also found the courage to leave your Dad. I left my ex, and he died in a river a year later. I went to that city to pick up a truck that he had failed to pay a loan on(in our name), but didn't go to the funeral. Al-Anon doesn't necessarily help you love someone again. It helps me love myself for who I am, and retain my self-esteem in the face of someone who is trying to knock it down. I really admire women who can live with active alcoholics and still be happy, because I have yet to be able to do that.

Love,
Happy
