(#1522) Beverly B (Lewisville, TX)
July 1993 in Columbia, MO  EVENT: Missouri State AA Convention  TYPE: Al-Anon, Female, Story

Very spiritual, energetic, has just come through the most difficult time of her life.

Her 15 1/2 year old son was her qualifier when she came in.

Beverly was born in Chicago. Raised in the city, there was lots of drinking in the family - mom was out of control, dad was the happy drunk.

There were lots of fights and long periods not talking to each other.

The family is riddled with alcoholism.

As a child relationships were two is company but three is a crowd. The home was well kept but her friends were not invited back.

At age nine they moved into the suburbs. She moved at some point to Ogden Utah and did not fit in, skipped school, but managed to graduate.

Got a job in the defense plant and finally fit in but had gained excessive weight.

She met her current husband of 37 years while working there.
