Libby I have only just read your story and I suppose the wedding has already taken place. I do hope you went and enjoyed it without the strain, anxiety, dread, and the myriad of feelings we experience from our alcoholic partners' behaviour, especially in public.

It is well past time for you to be living a life with joy, and hope and control over your emotions. By that I mean you can choose what feelings you want to have at any point whether at a public event or at home.

I have been a member of Al Anon for 33 yrs and it saved my life. Certainly my sanity.

Please look at Al Anon on line and find a phone…
