My ex-husband and I have been divorced since she was 2. Up to the age of 6, I became and active alcoholic. Since then I have maintained sobriety and I am an active member of AA. My daugter was placed in her fathers custody during my active disease. When I became sober, I realized the long drawn out battle to gain custody of her was not about her but it was about me and my selfishness. I then realized all I want for my child is to develope and maintain a loving relationship and be the mother that she never had. After letting go of this fight, my ex-husband and I live in the same town and share custody. At this time, my daughter thinks the moon of her father and I seem to be such a burden. I have done some 12 step work around this but I can't seem to think that her behavior towards me, the not wanting to be around me (except when it is fun for her) is because she dislikes me, dislikes who I am.
