Alcoholism Acceptance or Not
SDIL is an alcoholic and has been for a few years. She was driving drunk with SGD and doing several other disgusting and awful things before she was admitted for treatment. Now everyone treats her as if she's a saint for wanting to get better and I'm not buying it or appreciating it. I think she's fake, self centered and all about the attention but I seem to be the only Debbie Downer in the situation.
There are times I'm so angry at her for what she's done to the entire family and don't want anything to do with her and then I see everyone else doting over her and feel like a monster. I just need some advice from both sides to help me understand.
I think what it comes down to is I don't understand addiction and so many of us can function without addiction and nobody gives us a nod, but addicts can destroy lives and usually not even remember the damage they've caused and people want to celebrate them. I'm not a heartless person just trying to wrap my mind around it and understand from others who may have dealt or are dealing with similar things. It's just really eating away at me. I'd like to make peace with it I just don't know how.
I appreciate any feedback.
