He's the Best.

I love my dad. We were such a perfect happy family. He was sober for 15 years. Then it came back. We struggled a lot, now, he's been "recovering" for a good two years - meaning, actively seeking help. He goes to AA meetings at least 3 or 4 times a week but he still drinks. He is away at this weekend getting treatment at a rehab facility because it is spiraling out of control. He decided to go, though it was tough for him, like maybe he was giving up on doing it himself. Last time he went away he stayed sober for 4 months afterwards. I'm hoping it is just as good this time. I love him so much. It hurts me that he is so depressed. This time he talked about suicide. It is so difficult because I just can't fix his problems. He tries so hard but he can't see that he is still the person he used to be... before the motorcycle accident.
