My mother is 51 years old. I am 23. And I've had more of a friend type relationship with her more than her being my mother. I havnt lived with her or had her as a mom for 10 years Infact I really don't feel like I have a mom. She's an alcoholic and quick tempered and crazy. She has pushed literally everyone in her life away. She spent 6 months of last year in prison for multiple dui. I have a rocky relationship with her and it's very hard for me too keep my cool around her or to spend my time with her. Recently she has been diagnosed with Huntingtons disease. My grandmother died of it and 3 of my aunts have it as well. This gives me a 50/50 chance of getting it.

My question is I'm having a really hard time with all of this I'm not sure at all how to deal with any of it. I don't have the means to take care of her but shes all alone and will get worse until she dies. A sick feeling In my stomach tells me I don't have to deal with it and it's not problem another telling me she's my mother and I need to do something. But what? I'm also afraid she is going to try to commit suicide at some point. What would you think or feel or do if you were me about her?

Another should I get tested for it? Huntingtons, Some say it will ruin my life some say I should know and prepare myself idk
I never been so unsure about anything like this before
