reaching out


My dad was a gambler all the years of my childhood, he was followed by loan sharks, we moved frequently all about the country, leaving friends and belongings in the middle of the night, .... Now all of my fears and out of control, controlling behaviors are surfacing due to my son. He had a year of recovery but relapsed recently, and I am scared, feeling controlling and crazy, thanks for hearing me, great to have a common ground in which to vent.
