#39

Hi I am a 39 year old woman whose partner is an alcoholic who has now lost his business and has not worked for a year. I am a professional divorced woman who owns her own home and would describe myself as attractive, intelligent, from a stable and loving family background and reasonably well adjusted! I have read many books on alcoholism and really would like to chat with sufferers of this disease to learn more. I have been with my partner several years. He now admits he has a problem which is progress in itself but is dragging his heels over rehab. At the moment my mental and physical health is suffering. I am feeling very down, isolated, lonely and finding it difficult to concentrate at work. I don’t know what to do for the best and although I love him to bits I know that my only option may be to leave him although this will break my heart. If anyone has some advice it would be greatly appreciated.


#40

I have been married for 4 years now and my husband has left me and my kids. He is verbally abusive and what I consider a alcoholic. I have been in councilling for the past 2 months and found out I need to get out of the relationship before it gets worse but before I could talk to him and have the both of us seek professional help he decided to leave and get his own apartment. I am left with the house and the memories that reside here. It hurts to know that he is willing to just throw our marriage vows away. I want us to get help together but he doesn’t seem to be willing to do much right now. I realize it the best thing that probably has happened to me and my kids but I am single again and don’t want to got through this alone. I am looking for support to help and him to reconcile!

#46

I am a woman, a mother, an artist, a poet, a sister, a daughter, and most of all a part of humanity hoping to serve humanity. With 16+ years of sobriety after decades of alcoholic self-absorption, it is my goal to be of service, to help others combat crippling depression associated with HIV/AIDS, alcoholism, addiction, etc. By facilitating a positive, productive, esteem building outlet, I believe it is possible to help convert the “failed” human concern to a successful, more fulfilled one, at least for a while and without adding to or interfering with current medical prescriptions. At Urban Art Retreat, it is hoped that we can provide CarePlace and the many it serves with an additional benefit at no monetary expense to the organization or the population it serves.
