It's been a 10 year struggle for her. She was put on suboxone last year and then started taking more than she needed. Anyway, she's almost done her 28 days, and I'm feeling a way that I'm not proud of. We used to do pulls together years ago, but once I got pregnant I was able to stop. We are close, but don't live super close where we are in each other's day to day lives. She, her husband and my parents all live really close to each other.
Anyway, my parents rarely call my since she left and everything is about her. I know this is important, but just call and ask how my day went or how the kids are. My sister reached to/wrote letters to everyone, but me and I'm offended. I just feel a very unimportant person in my family's world even though I wrote her, went to visit and brought magazines and sent emails. I'm annoyed and don't know how to deal with these seemingly petty feelings
Thank you! I've been reading a lot of memoirs about addicts, but I didn't even think about Al-anon. I didn't realize I had so many feelings about it until just recently. It's just really hard to process
