Dads off to Sydney soon. They think his vertebrae might be crushed. Operation very important. Chance he might be a paraplegic if they don't get it sorted out soon.

I'm SO EXCITED!!! Tasmania on Sunday and Brisbane in 2 weeks!!

Mar. 2nd, 2012

Kind of a bit worried. Last month or so my mum had admitted that she's drinking too much. They open a bottle at lunch, around 12 and then drink until they go to bed at around 1030. They probably go through about 6 bottles during the week. My dad is an alcoholic and he's sometimes verbally abusive when he's drunk... But that's old news.

I'm just worried about my Mum, she seems I enable him by saying 'oh, it's 12 let's have a glass of wine!'. I'm now having to drive everywhere after lunch because they shouldnt. But what's really worried me is the last few weeks that mum get on the couch after dinner and is obviously out of it; think kids at parties. She pretty much doesn't remember what I say, tonight i told her to watch out because I had a drink near her feet, 10 seconds later she knocked the glass over and didn't even know anything about it until I was mopping up my full glass.

I don't know what to do. I'm worried. Really worried. And Mum's excuse is that they're stressed. So I feel that me saying anything would be unfair. If this was happening once a week, I wouldn't mind, but now that this is an everyday thing, I DO mind.

Today when we were at the shops, at 330 I said to mum we should go get a coffee to which she said "do you really want a coffee, I'll get you one if you do but I want to go home and have a glass of wine."

The situation is just awkward I guess. I'm trying to pour all my energy into me, and getting better (bar cooking dinner and cleaning up after it 6 days a week), and as much as I'm concerned I don't want/need anymore problems. And I don't want my parents to have problems.

I'm just so unsure as to what to do, I don't think I could handle both parents drinking themselves stupid everyday.

Brisbane 2013

So talked to my parents, put in a deferral for Uni for one year... Pretty much the aim is to work my arse off this year on my health, food, stress, self opinion etc so that next year I can go back to Brisbane and Uni full time. I Have an appointment with my psych next week so I'm going to talk to her so we can start working on it now. I want to go back to do Uni on campus, and to see my friends... But I don't want things to turn out badly, so I'm going to have to work bloody hard. But I work hard, so I believe I can actually fully recover this year.

This is the best I've felt about myself and the most positive I've been in more than a year.
