Here I am AGAIN. This time is different though. My husband now knows about how much rum I have been putting away as he has been watching the bottle (even though he doesn’t know about my hidden bottle). I also went to a doctor to get some help. Turns out I am also depressed. So her options were: 1, try therapy, 2, get chemical dependance counceling/help, 3, sleep meds (b/c I don’t sleep), 4, anti depressants, or a combination. Her thinking is my depression is caused by my alcoholism and if I can stop the drinking the depression might go away on it’s own. I chose to start therapy and stop drinking (with family support). But I am so depressed, tired, achy, etc. Do I have to go on anti depressants to get through this??????
