What a day you have had. Sounds like a journey that has taken many years to get to this point. I applaud you for heading straight to your doctor and I also commend your doctor for listening and finding you some solutions and something to work with.

I wish you the very best of luck, it won't be easy but I'm sure you will come through feeling much stronger.

You are exactly right. It has taken many years of good and bad cycles to hit rock bottom like this but i am so very grateful that i have a plan moving forward. Have already told my parents and carlo who have all been positive and supportive.

Told a friend i work with too so that she can help me stay focussed while i am at work

Thank you all for your support. It means a lot. A huge lot.

Alicia

The good thing is, this can be fixed. I think a support group with those with the same condition could be a good idea

I had a friend who did the Wesley program years ago, she had a lot of success.

Alicia, having the courage to openly share your issues is a huge step. Well done! Your "inner circle" of Carlo, your parents and the friend at work, sound like a great foundation of support. In addition, you also have us, the many friends you have made on the Disboards (& on FB) cheering you on. Wishing you all the best.

aww thanks... you guys have been amazing, and so supportive. i like to think that i put my best face foward, so to speak, via the online interactions on the dis and FB, but by coming clean, i feel like i'm being honest about who i really am, and the acceptance i've received from everyone has been truly humbling.

You know, sometimes I think it's easier being honest and sharing your thoughts and feelings with those you don't know in real life. That's how I feel anyway. I share things on my blog with people I don't know in real life that I would never discuss with people that I see everyday.

You are going to beat this Alicia, one day at a time, one step at a time. Share away freely here as you know there will never be any judgement, only support!

I dont have a filter so what you see/ hear on dis and fb is unfortuantly exactly what I am...lol......but i do agree that sometimes its easier to chat to people of like mind than deal with the difficult people we sometimes encounter in real life.....

Hang in there mate, we are all behind you..well some of us slightly behind and to the left, and a few still on the couch, and maybe one is in the loo...but apart from them, the rest of us are standing behind you...in a non stalker avo kinda way....
