Not gonna lie, this past year has been the toughest since I sobered up thirteen years ago. Although very slowly, the thought of drinking again, over time, has crept up on me like a cheetah after it’s prey.
ou can't overcome anxiety, addiction or depression without allowing yourself to, first, go outside of the box... a bunch. People often emotionally limp into my office and look at me as if I have all the answers, thinking I have some magic word/pill that will set them on their feet again - without their effort.
If you're trapped with dibilitating anxiety/panic right now, tell somebody. Don't hold it in. In fact, when you share this with others, you disarm anxiety's strength in your life.
