Lost for words

So I actually love sobriety best thing anyone can do I truly want to turn my life around but the addiction brings me to my knees!!! I just wanted a nice sober day but that seems to never happen I take full responsibility for my actions but sometimes I cant handle things Iím dealing with bipolar which the medication Iím on now has made things worse try to call doctors they arenít in on top of that my mom called me and told me her cancer has spread and she is pretty much all I got left other then brother, kids and husband Iím kid free and husband free just me I decided to down a bottle of wine to numb the pain but it has made things worse antidepressant and alcohol donít mix I put a gun to my temple and thought about just ending everything but thatís not me I will not give in I donít know why I done that guess Iím lost Iím just looking for positive support to get me through this Iím sry you see the negative side of me Iím not me at the moment I did lock up the gun because I truly love life and not ready to give in!!! Any support helps thanks

I hope you don't get any more alcohol. Drinking will make you more depressed and hopeless.

Would counseling be possible? Sounds like you've got a lot on your mind. Might be nice to have someone to open up to.

Anna beat me to it with the links. We take the safety of our members really seriously.

It very important you ask for help when you need it Nichole.
We want you to be safe.

I'm sorry for your mums diagnosis.

I know it's a scary thing but drinking just makes the fear worse in my experience.

Nichole, putting a gun to your head is extreme. You need help, please take care.

Having a gun in the house is not a great idea actually. Many people here, including me, are battling the force of addiction and I see people DO recover and you can be one of those too. It does sound like you need some help and there is nothing to be ashamed of there. I see a psychiatrist. I need one now. There may come a time when I don't but that time is not now.

PLEASE keep posting and letting us know how you are. I am sorry about your mother. That is a very difficult situation for both of you.

Noone can force you to do anything, Nichole, but I hope you'll reconsider.
It's very hard to commit someone if they don't want to be committed.

Is you husband and family around?
like Anna says, take care, ok?

We can never be sure what we might do in a blackout.
I think it would be incredibly dangerous for you to drink to blackout tonight.

Like I said we can't force you to seek help but please stop drinking - it's just not the answer.

Nichole, Please don't regret posting - we're here to listen & help if we can. You said you truly love life, sobriety, & aren't ready to give in - those are thoughts to hold on to. Please stop drinking so you can have a clear head. We need you here. Keep talking to us.

The point is - you have a whole life ahead of you. It can still be wonderful, despite the challenges. It doesn't have to be filled with pain & regret. You can rise above this sad time & find yourself again.

hi Nichole, most of us have had terrible, terrible low moments. I was there only a month ago. I couldn't even bear to think about the next day. But the next day came and I dealt with it and things look at lot better now, just a small number of days later. You can deal with this but you need to start somewhere, maybe not drinking right now and trying to get some rest is the best thing you can do right now. Tomorrow you can start to think about where you go from here. It will be ok but drinking is not going to help you deal with this.
