New at this...thanks for reading

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.

  • It takes time, we all do what we need to do to cope with our issues. I am here without judgement. I take ssri's (antidepressants) to help with my anxiety and depression. I used to drink to cope and then became sober for 8 years. Nowadays I drink maybe twice a year. Feel free to message me!
