She gets upset, starts fussing with me about drinking while im drinking and i go ballistic under the influence. This process goes on and on. I explained to her the worst time to talk to me about my drinking is when im drinking...can end being dangerous. I scare myself the next day with thinking about the parts of my drunk tirades, at least the parts i can remember.
I think the fussing is fear - sounds like she's really worried for you, mistory.

you can't change someone elses behavior - but you can definitely change your behaviour, and the way you respond to hers.

Get busy
