This is Dorothy and both myself and Doris are in this together simply because we are so much involved with each other and we are counterparts of two family members. I am the counterpart of Susan the oldest sister or child of Tamara's fleshly family. Doris is the counterpart of Tamara's fleshly mother. Tamara's mother had many problems and I am sure she had a very terrible upbringing. Many times I was the one who took care of her in different ways. I am the oldest and therefore I became the mother in this sick fleshly family. I was expected to take care of the younger ones simply because the mother was gone. Sometimes she was just out drinking. I should not have had that responsibility but I did. Like the oldest sister I began to drink but I waited until I was twenty- one not like Susan who started drinking at the age of twelve. I speak for Doris many times because she wants to be left in the background. Tamara's mother was a severe binge drinker.She did not know how to take care of us. We are sure she did not even want us which was said in many ways.
We are very much alike in some ways but in other important ways we are just the opposite. I came to despise the mother and at the same time Tamara because she was the smallest in the family for twelve years and I had to take care of her.
