Greetings!  My name is Anna and I am a mother learning to navigate the trials of an adult daughter who has an alcohol addiction.  This journey is painful beyond my imagination.  At times I feel like I am addicted to the addict.  I love her and she is always my daughter.  I do not love the addict.

My hope for sharing my story is to somehow lighten the stress and pain I constantly feel.  I am striving to live my life, to remain joyful through the pain and confusion that comes from watching my daughter struggle with her addiction and all the crap that comes with it.  

Thanks for dropping by!  If you are experiencing similar circumstances or have in the past please feel free to comment.  One thing I remind myself of daily is that I am not alone on a journey such as this!
