rut



I always had that false courage that pain pills gave me so I'm stuck right now in almost every aspect of my life now that I'm off,not working by choice,isolated myself from my friends cause I didn't want to tell them,like they would talk definitely.I mean gossip.guess they are more acquaintances.
So,I'm bored and in a rut.Went to a few meetings but not working the program as much as I should.
I think I assumed when I got sober everything would be okay and don't get me wrong I love that I'm off that crap!!
I go to a shrink and counselor,the shrink wants to put me on cymbalta,I don't like that idea.I want to be happy naturally.

I went to my sister's bday party last l=night. She turned 50. It was the first time I went to a big event without pills or booze. I know what you mean about feeling good, but sad too.
I am also trying to figure out if I need to be on an antidepressant.
I think it is a good idea to consider the feedback of professionals. We do not always see clearly and there is not a big risk with ADs like there is with painkillers.
Please keep looking up. You are doing great.
