Hello. I've never been serious about dealing with my depression and anxiety. I make jokes to hide my feelings. It's exhausting. So I've come to the harsh realization that I've got to change my mind-erasing lifestyle: drinking to numb, drinking to forget.
I know the risks of drinking with depression and have read all the warnings about drinking while taking anti-depressants (I'm on Wellbutrin). But I drink. Daily. So...I'm hoping for some encouraging words or advice on managing my depression and being an alcoholic.
Quit drinking, right? Sounds like a realistic suggestion but my spouse is also an alcoholic. Co-dependency? Enabling? Yes and yes. I'm not leaving my husband so, now what?
Thanks for reading. And thanks for any suggestions/advice/criticism.
