Finally giving in..

Feb 29, 2012 - 1 comments

After much persistence from my husband I have been to the doctors today (very overwhelming ) but I did it. Quite proud of myself actually but not sure if I should be. Was as honest as I could be don't really find it very easy to talk about what happens to me. In her opinion I'm a classic case of bipolar however she can't diagnose me so now have to wait to see a psychiatrist an then maybe I will get the help I need more for my families sake than my own.

I can't tell you what a relief it was when we were finally able to have my husband diagnosed.  It took 3 years of substance abuse treatment before I got tired of their crap and finally found a psychiatrist who was able to get a diagnoses.  He still has trouble with alcohol (self medication), but not often and not to the extent he was drinking before he started the meds.  It is so important to finally find out what is not working.  I hope you get the help you need and the strength to quit drinking.  Your children will always love you, but a regular mom will be so wonderful for them.
