She's in Recovery Online resources and community for the women in recovery. "The (addicted) woman is attacked not only for her failure at motherhood, but for her abandonment of more general nurturing and caretaking functions that are at the core of the female role. 'Good' women are primarily concerned with the needs and welfare of others... and when women are no longer willing or able to serve.... - even for reasons beyond (their) control -- the response is usually not support or sympathy...."
Those words were penned by author Marian Sandmaier, in her book THE INVISIBLE ALCOHOLICS, in 1980. http://www.shesinrecovery.com/ -
