Our expert says:
Alcohol interacts unhelpfully with anyone's personality and behaviour. The effect would be more so in anyone with a ny degree of significant brain damage. It is o course unfortunate that you became physical violent, even to a minorr degree, but apparently it was in response to provocative verbal violence, a form of abuse that is too often overlooked. This relationship is becoming abusive, due to what BOTH of you are doing, and it would be wrong to place the sole blame on you for responding eventually to verbal abuse.
It sounds likely that you would in no way be physically unpleasant to her if she stopped drinking and stopped the verbal abuse.
If the relationship is to be repaired, you BOTH need to be involved in relationship / couples counselling.
And it would be short-sighted and foolish for her mother and sister to overlook both her provocation and her problem drinking, which needs to be tackled, for her sake.
