What was your room like? Arthur Anderson Art artnscience-(at)-yahoo.com
Harry and Neal,
I think you guys already know from my posting that I know how you must have felt. I was lucky to have an older sister, we were able to bond together for safety when the storm raged outside her locked door. My door never had a lock on it. A while back I posted a message entitled "It's a great life if you don't weaken" which talked about the private shame of living in a house where alcohol creates frightening scenes.
After I attended a group for adult children of alcoholic parents I understood that 82% of families are dysfunctional. This makes those with stories like ours clearly in the majority. What a sad statistic. I hope the 12 step programs are making progress in restoring functionality to troubled families.
