Thanks, Mrs Harry. Unfortunately, no. I was an only child, my father too, and all the elders are gone. My cousins were all younger than me–I was the oldest child in my mother’s the family. My Dad was in the army, so we moved around alot–sometimes two or three schools in one year. I didn’t learn to read until Grade 3. Have been reading up a storm ever since. I did pretty well in school with very little effort–my report cards said: ” Jane could do better”! I didn’t do home work, assignments were always late. My parents didn’t push me–they had their own problems. I’ve been told that the only child of alcoholics are called “the forgotten ones”. I wasn’t hyperactive–but a day dreamer. It is all pretty much a blurr. I became an alcoholic, too. I’ve been sober 31 years now. My sobriety brought me some sanity, for which I am very grateful. I live a very busy life now–doing volunteer work in the community. That helps. But most of the time I am running in circles like a wet hen. I want to stop that! And enjoy life more.REPORT ABUSE
