Never liked intro's LOL

I usually skip this part of a forum... but after 45 minutes of trying to come up with a screen name unlike any others I use, and find one that wasn't in use on this board, when the timer went off for the oven, I laughed when I typed in CookiesAreDone and it was available.

My mom is single (in that she doesn't live with her boyfriend of 15+ years), alone, with a large family of insane unsupportive sisters that make everything worse. In the last year my mom went from functioning, to non-functioning.

I'm mid thirties with a family, and we live abroad so it's hard to check on her in person, and literally makes me sick when her phone is off the hook.

I joined this site after coming across a poem written and shared on here from 2005 from another daughter of an alcoholic mother. The entire thread moved me to tears.

Hi, Glad you are here. I am an addict. But I grew up in an alcoholic home.
That has to be hard being so far away. But as you have probably already seen. There are forums here for family members.
Hope to see more of you.

Welcome to SR Cookiesaredone. Great screenname by the way. You probably already know this, but in case you didn't, I'm attaching a stickie and you might want to visit it.

Adult Children of Addicted/Alcoholic Parents - SoberRecovery : Alcoholism Drug Addiction Help and Information

There is a wealth of information on SR and I wish you well. It isn't easy standing where you are, but there is hope.
