I have never posted on these sites but have always looked to them for support. But I think I’m at the end of my rope.
My wife of 10 years (together for almost 20) is a alcoholic. I guess she is a high functioning one. Ever since we started dating alcohol has always been around. I have never really thought she has a problem till 2 years ago. She was admitted to the hospital because she was sick. Her eyes yellow and all other ailments. Turns out she has cirossis and I’m sure other things she isn’t telling me. I thought that would be the wake up call she needed but I was wrong. She says she wants to get better but only goes 1 or 2 days without drinking. I have tried to set boundaries but she will not stick to them. I have dealt with this for at least 10 years and I’m tired and drained from being a single parent to our 9 year old. I just don’t know what to do anymore.
Thanks for any advice
