I think this is me, nowadays. Sometimes, I just get just gets exhausted. When I try and help with a substance abuse issue, I think I have it all under control. I mean my emotions. After all, I am not the one with the addiction. I should be able to keep an positive attitude, right? But lately, I feel my disposition is pushed to the limit. Just when I think, someone is in recovery, they repeat the cycle! or if, it is not one person, it is another. I like to come here and interact with others going through addiction and others who can relate to what it is like to deal with a loved one or friend going through an addiction. I am afraid, sometimes, I get too blunt in my responses. I think, it is similar to displaced anger at a situation that I can not control. So, just in case, I have offended anyone here on the forum, I am going to apologize. I want to reassure you that all my replies are solely with good intent to be supportive. It is just that some weeks are tougher then others! Anyone else, every feel like this?
