Just a quick update

Hello friends my presence on SR has reduced recently as i have loads going on which is good but a lil bit stressful im ok im spending more time with mrs sw & getting ready for decorating & the arrival of our new king size bed

Im sorting out some counselling & possibly some psycotherapy for extra help in my sobriety im ok but i have known for a few months this is the next step in my recovery

I suffer with depression i dont often tell many ppl that and only a few know, im a lil embarrassed about it but ive accepted il need a lil help to overcome it

Im telling you guys primarily so you dont think im off drinking somewhere and to keep my friends in the loop as only a couple mods & friends know at the moment

I am a lot busier and even now at 9pm im playing catch up

I just wanted you guys to know im ok & sober

I am waiting on a few apts & i have to make more apts and im making more time for mrs sw and we have been watching Lost from season 1 recently and im lost in it lol

Im hoping to be a lot less busy by friday btw my hair has really grown back and im praying my ear is better as i have finished the course of medication, i need a gp to check the infection has cleared, its been over or around 7 months since ive had my head underwater or had a hot bath i have had to have lukewarm baths as steam can mess my ear up or any moisture for that fact

This was meant to be a quick update lol

I think thats everything so if im not around much just know im super busy getting a LOT sorted out

I will be back posting loads hopefully by the end of the week

Spk soon guys

No shame or embarrassment in talking about our mental health! You help many others by being open about depression and the willingness to seek professional assistance.

Good for you my friend!

No shame being depressed. I suffer depression too. Actually, I assumed the majority of alcoholics have dealt with depression at one point.

Glad you are ok. Never be embarrassed about getting depressed. I too struggle with it. I think you are wise to get some extra counseling it has helped me a great deal. Enjoy the bed!
