Carina’s younger sons, Quinton and Roland, claim Carina drinks too much. They also say that when she drinks, she lashes out – usually making them the target of her rage.
“She says vicious things that she doesn’t mean,” says Quinton.
Roland disagrees. “Quinton sees it as she’s grieving and she’s weak, and we just need to take it, but I honestly have no tolerance for that behavior,” he says.
Carina admits she drinks daily to numb the pain.
Roland says, “We’re constantly worrying about her, and there is no way that we can live the rest of our lives like this."
