Lived Experience: Peggy Carlson

Read Peggy's Story


I know everyone thinks I should leave Bruce. Maybe I should but I don’t want to. If we could turn things around and he got some help, I know things would go back to the way they were. I love Bruce and I think he can be a good father. I stay with Bruce because when we are both sober, things are really good. He is good to me, I know he loves me and I for sure know he loves our children. They should grow up with a mom and a dad. Anyways, whose to say I would be any better off away from Bruce than I am when we are together. Who can help me? Who can help Bruce?
