    As a child, nearly every adult in my life at some point  had to grapple with this issue.  

    I was "fortunate" enough to be diagnosed with epilepsy at 21.  When that happened, and when I went on meds, they told me no to drink.  So I didn't.  And I haven't.  It's just not on my radar.  

    So I am happy that I was able to dodge that familial bullet.

    There were those who didn't change anything.  My Uncle decided to sit on in his char, drink beer, take pills he got from the "pharmacy" in town, and just generally squash any future he ever had.  

    I have read my Mother's diary from her times in rehab.  It is crushing to read her post rehab journal.
