This blog has been written from the perspective of parents of an addict. As we all know parents aren't the only loved ones affected by an addict.
I know from comments and e-mails that brothers, sisters, grandparents, addicts and so many others read my blog. I would imagine that much of the pain may be very much like what we feel as parents but I also imagine there are unique issues for them dealing with an addicted loved one.
In the past I have posted many links to other bloggers, many of the them other parents. I also want to try to recognize other loved ones of addicts that write as a way of dealing with their pain.
If you are a loved one of an addict and write your own blog I'd love to list you. Here is a link and if you comment or e-mail me I'll list you too.
