What a day

  • Hi I would like to say how I know to a degree what you are going through with the addiction issue.  I am a recovering alcoholic and have been sober three years.  And it took roughly six months prior to that to get me to seriously take the effort/s to stop drinking.  I was admitted over 6 times to mental hospitals trying to figure out why I was so anxious and depressed all the time, which I drank to cover them.  Once I discovered why I had an addiction and the ammuntion of why and how it made it easier to stop drinking and for me to actually follow through with the detox process.  I am also addicted to narcotics, I am working on getting off of them.  So in the course of the roughly four years, I found out I have borderline personality disorder, severe anxiety, non-spec. depression, ocd, ptsd.  Alot of things I know but I had also just found out that, I was at a high risk do to the fact I have an addictive personality.  So thus starts the other chapter in my life that I must close.  If you ever need to chat or want to email me, email me at brittany_d_o_neill@yahoo.com

    Sincerely,

    Brittany

  • Wow, I'm sorry that you are going through this but totally respect you for sticking by your hubby's side and helping him cope.  I'm not sure a lot of people would do that.  In the end, I hope that he is able to kick his issues and you two can move on together.  

    Hugs,

    Jackie

  • Ooooh yes, life has a way of throwing curveballs when you least expect or need it.  I'm thankful to hear that hubby is motivated and willing to work towards a healthier life.  It will certainly be a difficult journey but my hope is together you will pull through.
