Thank you so kindly. It is heartbreaking but also comforting to know so many of us are dealing with this very thing.

Hi Trish. You will find a lot of help here.
Also, have you checked out Al Anon, and meetings local to you? There is a lot of (free) face to face support and camaraderie to be found there.

I hope you find the help you need
