    I got really choked up reading your reply, thank you. Your support means alot and I feel completely isolated and alone, especially since no one even knows what's really going on with me at home. I have found more support today in this group than I ever expected and I desperately needed it. Thank you.

    Hey, @Dm993... How are you doing today? I put the emphasis on today because that's really all any of us have. Yesterday's water under the bridge, and tomorrow might not even come. So concentrate on today. One day at a time! Please check in with us when you have a chance.

    Please give this...us...yourself...and everyone who may read you're story a chance,a chance to open the blinds and let in some light that the isolation has taken from you.Even if it only happens here please keep sharing, venting,releasing.Over time the feedback you will receive here will slowly eliminate that feeling of isolation, I know simply because that's exactly what I did and if you go back to when I first started sharing I was lost,empty,ashamed, I hated myself, I felt alone,I couldn't stand my own reflection in the mirror. I am human so obviously there are time's where I still feel isolated like today,I spent nearly a year aggressively breaking down my own perception of me,I put literally everything on this site,I cried,I complained, I questioned why I even tried,I was full of self pity and I shared all that vulnerability right here and I slowly started to mend my own perception of me.I still constantly read and post,in the beginning reading all these stories made me cry...alot it broke my heart to read the pain other's were dealing with and I tried to respond to everyone, I tried to deliver Hope even though I couldn't find my own,but without even knowing it I was helping myself by allowing other's to get to know my own pain.Today I got turned down for a dream job I thought I had in the bag,today I am a bit sad and depressed but I will be ok,if I had gone through this 1 year ago I would have locked myself in a room with multiple case's of beer and a huge bag of dope and honestly I wouldn't have cared if I lived or died.I know you're struggling right now but keep sharing,keep venting and all those thing's that torment you inside slowly start to release them,at you're pace don't rush anything to fast but little by little release the pain and I promise you it will change you're life for the better.I pray you check in here today if nothing else just to say hello:)

    I'm doing ok, it has been an emotional rollercoaster and I'm trying to figure out how to get through the next week... My husband came home last night and we are going on several trips. One a short two day trip tomorrow and another week and half trip with his mother Christmas day. Oh and we are driving so I won't be able to hide any alcohol and I know I will probably feel stressed and I don't know how I'm going to cope. I guess it is the perfect time to stop drinking.
