As you know I write this blog anonymously. My alcoholic husband first went into rehab nearly 10 years ago – he had a few ‘slips’ (I hate that word – factor 10 life shattering earthquakes would be a better description)in the years that followed. The last one was nearly 2 years ago and he has no interest in going back there. I’m thinking of coming out from behind the veil of anonymity – if I do so I feel I could reach more people. I’m thinking of doing a weekly video post which people might find supportive.
I’m holding back because I’m thinking ‘what will people we know think’. I don’t want people to change their opinion of me or my husband (being protective of an adult again!). We’re in a good place now and I want to show others it is possible. Alcoholism is such a wide spread disease but soooo hidden. Do you think me being non anonymous would make a difference – would it give you more of a connection?
