It is currently 3:08am right now as I lay in bed awake next to my sleeping husband. Unlike him though, I cant sleep.
My brother called me today once I was off work, crying. My father had begun drinking again. Im pissed. Drinking is what killed my mother, and now he was going to follow the same path.
For my whole life, my parents had been known as alcoholics, ruining mine and my siblings childhood. It wasnt until 9 months ago when they found out drinking was killing my mother that they quite. Hard part was, that I knew they hadnt. I noticed the empty glass by my mothers bed side table when I would visit. Once I confronted my father and he said,”Its just a little” well, it was a little too much. When they had actually found out she was actually going to die, they finally stopped stopped about 3 months ago because they still had hope.
Now my mother is dead from drinking, and my father has started up again. My mom wouldnt want this, but he doesnt care. Says hes in too much pain. Does that mean that he was in too much pain raising us? Were all in pain now though, but we get through it and live on. Sad part is that my dad is an angry drunk.
I cant stand to watch another parent die the same way, it rips me up inside. I had tried talking to him but he just tells me he’ll stop and never does. I dont know what to do, but theres nothing to do. My family has always been fucked up, i dont know why i thought her death would keep us together.
Anywho, thats the reason I cant sleep. Plus i keep seeing her in my head, lying in that hospital bed struggling to survive. We killed her. We really did. My mother wanted to live, she told me to make sure she was resuscitate because she was scared of dying. The woman cried on me for havens sake. But my dad signed her death when he chose not to resuscitate. I hate him for getting her start drinking, and I hate him for killing her in the end. I miss my mommy, and now she will never be there to tell me how proud she is of me, to tell me she loves me, or to just laugh with me about stupid things moomoo does. She never got to see moomoo. We kept talking about when she would get better, how she would come over to my place and have some steak an watch a movie. She just, never got better.
