Have anyone of you dealt with an alcoholic parent? It’s taken such a toll on my mental and emotional health. I’m so tired of it all. I don’t know how much longer I can keep going like this.

Sorry to hear about your situation. I have not. Has your parent sought professional help?

I haven’t either but would be willing to listen (if it helps); free of judgement.

Not alcoholic parents, but older brother when I first came to US like 20+ years ago. Seek professional help and ask parents to seek professional help as well. Also, talk to community leader usually from local Masjid for guidance and intervention. Also, keep yourself busy by picking up either a hobby, extra work or anything that you enjoy to take you mind off of it. Your company may also have a program to discuss with professional. I know Accenture has a hotline to discuss these kinda matter which is 100% confidential and no cost.

Desperate to have another baby in a couple of years but also need to change jobs due to lack of promo over last 2 years. I'm really stuck on what to do as the 2 companies I've looked into with a good (ish) mat leave have both rejected me. Staying at my current company until after baby isn't really an option as I hate it so much and it's getting me down. The company is actually OK but I'm not happy with my level and I have no support. Any advice for me?
