I am 19 and I live with my parents and my mom just recently went to rehab for alcohol. I knew she drank but I did not know how much until my father pulled at least 20 huge bottles of tequila out of her bathroom. She went to the hospital the day before she went to rehab because she was drinking while taking her medication and became delirious. She was laying on the floor and the medic had to help her walk out to the living room and lay down on the gurney and she was laughing the whole time. I was shocked. so for the last 3 weeks I have been playing mom, cleaning, cooking, washing, buying and picking up my brother from school and on top of that going to college. My father started talking about how we have no money left. I have tried to find a job, but I cannot find one. I have been trying for at least 6 months. I am afraid I cannot continue college and will have nothing to do with myself. I have not been taking fabulous care of my chickens lately. Their coop is full of poo and to top that off they are getting to big for the coop. I am afraid I will have to find a home for all of them since I cannot take care of them and I cannot live in my parents house forever. I am soooo sad. I love them like they are my babies... My mom is coming home tomorrow from rehab. I think she will just go back into her drunken stupor again and my dad will leave her. I am so worried right now. I can't believe mom was so selfish to waste herself away like this and did not think of the consequences. She would even complain about her back hurting at night so she could have an excuse to go back into her room and drink. I am disappointed in her.
