I sure relate. I don’t hang out with coworkers after hours nor do I drink with them. I get myself in enough trouble working with them all day. I wish I could just tape my mouth shut. I literally yelled at a coworker 2 weeks ago. Though she was completely out of line, there is never a good reason to lose my cool and holler at my work neighbor. I immediately told my manager what I did and asked her for some guidance. She knows I have ADHD, her husband has it too. We talked, I didn’t get in trouble but my anger needs attention. I’m currently in therapy talking things through and it helps. My 2 cents, apologize, forgive yourself and focus on work. There will be a new drama in the workplace any day now that they’ll focus on. I’m sorry about your mom and her sobriety, that’s stressful.
