I'm wondering if anyone could share tips on how they handled the post heroin, post recovery depression. I definitely had underlying depression that contributed to my heroin use, and I found that the most difficult part of the whole recovery process was rebuilding my confidence and self esteem after recovery. As a woman in my late 20s, sometimes it's still difficult to cope with the loss of time that I spent in my addiction. I really try to be grateful for what I've accomplished, but sometimes it's hard not to compare myself with my peers who've started their careers and built their lives. Are there any people out there who have bounced back after addiction? What was the process like? What did you do that helped the most?
