          Why Teen Says She Fears She’s Going To Come Home And Find Her Mom Dead


          May 5, 2017

          Rachel says her mom, Aundrea, is a pill addict and alcoholic who ruined her childhood.

          “When I was in fifth grade, she came to my school to visit me. We were in the lunchroom, and she got up and started singing and dancing. That was really humiliating for me, because I was known as the girl with the drunk mom,” says 19-year-old Rachel. “My mom would show up to pick me and our carpool friend up and she would be drunk. There were times where I had to drive because I didn’t want there to be an accident. I only had a learner’s permit.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is your family a stressed mess?

          The teen says her mom has ruined every birthday, holiday and family event, and even showed up at her brother’s college graduation drunk.

          “I have found her passed out on her bathroom floor with a box of wine sitting right next to her,” Rachel says. “One time, I walked in and found my mom passed out on the toilet, not responsive.”
