    So I went to see a D&A counselor about a month ago, and she said that I had re-wired my brain over the twenty years of severe alchohol abuse and drug abuse. I made it so that the only time I was happy was when I was drinking, The only time It would release the endorfins or whatever, was when i was getting plasterd. So when i soberd up it was awfull, I was angry and depressed all the time. It was bad, I was having trouble at work and at home, freeking out at people, everyone was scared of me. I was ready to start drinking again just to be half sane, because i was definitely insane. All I could think about was having a drink and getting wasted. This condition was not getting better, it was getting worse. The D&A counselor suggested that I start taking prozac. I am not one who believes in this type of drug, I was against it totally, but i went along with it because i had nothing to lose.
    Today I feel like a mew man, I am not angry or depressed, I dont freek out. I have no desire to drink or use drugs, This totaly blows me away, I have only felt like this when i was a kid, before I started drinking.I obviously have a chemical imbalance in my brain! I think prozac is going to help me stay sober for the rest of my life. I feel great, I wonder what its goona be like coming off the prozac when i stop taking it? lol
    Anyway please post comments and suggestions, this forrum has been helpfull for me! Thank-you.

    Now that I have stopped abusing my DOC and am back on my meds I feel like a new person. I am still a bit depressed but not as depressed as I was when I was using. I was a different person when I was abusing pills.

    You may have to stay on the Prozac for a while…

    I am glad you are doing so well..

    Hey Guzler, Good to hear you sounding better and to see that your feeling calmer now.I have anger issues too.!

    Im so Glad you went to see someone about it as you were not feeling the best last time i saw you post…?

    Prozac… hummm, yer I tyred that but it only worked for awhile, the depression came back, and so did the anger. But thats was just me.Everyone has different reactions to it, it seems. I do hope its good for you.! 🙂

    Im still pleased that its better for you now.Like you said…Most of us have fryed our brains, me certainlely, so it stands to reason that were going to have mental problems afterwards…! Did’nt mean that in a bad way, if you know what i mean…?…:) .

    Wishing you the Best Guzler… :kickbutt
