There is help in the rooms of Nar-Anon Family Groups. I would not be sane, or even alive if I had not crawled into the rooms where mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, grandchildren and loving friends gathered to share their experience strength and hope. i hope those who are suffering, wondering what to do, will find a meeting near them. www.nar-anon.org has listings for everywhere.
