I kinda feel the same right now. It's depressing, but I have to remind myself that it's part of the process of getting to where we want to go. Alcohol deadens our emotions (literally, in the brain), but it doesn't define us. We are so much more, and we get to decide. Do we matter? If we care about ourselves, the answer is yes.

Glad you're here Thatdeliveryguy and sharing your thoughts. We're not as alone as we think we are.
