So grateful for Nacoa

Hi everyone. Not sure how active this message board is but discovering Nacoa in the past couple of years has been a huge help to me, especially reading other people's stories and finding others who understand what it is like to have an alcoholic parent. So was pleased to see a message board and hope there will be people around to talk to. My mum has been having mental health problems and drinking for twenty years now, it started when I was 13 and I am finally getting round to dealing with some of the impact it's had on me now I'm in my early thirties! I find it really difficult and emotionally exhausting thinking about it all but need to as it has had such a big effect on my mental health and continues to. This is my first step towards dealing with it...
