Who knew

Hi all,
I have not posted in a while, I'm doing well, my depression is getting better and I'm staying sober!! I still do not understand depression I always thought it meant being sad or hopeless. Now working with my docror, I get it a little bit and I see how I used alchol to numb myself from it, but alcohol stopped working and took over. I'm in a good place now that I have more knowledge about underling issues, with my alcoholism. I read here every day, attend AA every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day, the support, from AA, SR, my doctor and my family is fsntastic.
I read an article on cracked.com author John Cheese, about depression, he is very comedic with his writing but he described exactly how I felt.
Learning never stops and being sober is so much better.
Thank you all your posts mean a lot to me and my recovery efforts.
Love ya all,
Mick

What a wonderful update Mick!! I am glad you found a doctor who is helping you with depression, it is definitely a tricky thing to get under control. I am also really happy to hear you are sober. I hope you will check in more often!

❤️Delilah
