(#869) Corrie L (Wetumpka, AL)
8/21/2010 in Cartersville, GA  EVENT: 33rd Allatoona Roundup  TYPE: Al-Anon, Female, Story

An Al-Anon member 16 years since 9/18/1998, Corrie starts the talk saying, "My life is about to change dramatically in about 10 days." She is definitely not an alcoholic but her life has been profoundly affected by alcohol.

Her father is English, her mother Dutch. She grew up overseas. She felt different. Her basic premise of life was "If I was somebody other than me then everybody would like me."

She never planned to marry an alcoholic. They came into recovery together. She sobbed uncontrollably when she learned in the rooms she could not cure her husband of alcoholism.

Corrie is funny and insightful. Enjoy.
