    Reader comments on Sister Helen

    Subject: Sister Helen
    Date: Feb 21, 2007
    Sender: Norma ulmerPrevious | Next

    I stumbled upon the TV channel and watch the documentary of Sister Helen. It left a tremendous impact on my life. I have alot in common with Sister Helen, although I have never had any addiction problem. However, I am also in my late sixties, I have survived/endured/lived through 3 generations (father, X-husband, adult son) of alcoholism. As I watched this film, I said to myself, "I just live a few miles away from this place, I just have to speak to this woman." She could help me I know, because I have been such a co-dependent and most of the times I am at my wits end. I was devastated to see that she died. I knew that she would understand. I am a certified RN having worked at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center for 25 yrs. I have been through it all, worked rehabs, a jail in Westchester and have been very effective in my duties. But with my son, I cannot even help myself, so how can I help him? But Sister Helen, lost two sons and she would know what to tell me. What a hard life she had. Yet, she still had a sense of humor, she was strong, would not buckle, and gained the respect and love of these desperate souls. I wish she were alive today, so that I could thank her for the wonderful work she has done. I know that God has already rewarded her for her labors of love. Norma
