When worries are real

I went to depress anonymous. I can’t say it really helped other than to be around people that understand. They suggested 6 meetings in 6 weeks, like most 12 step programs. I’m planning to try it again. I hope I’ll fibd support there. I’ve been in Alanon in the past because of family members that have addictions. I know these programs can help. But my anxiety is telling me not to go. I just don’t want to open up or listen to all the bad things that can happen.

@pigletpmd It's often difficult to talk ourselves in to doing better for ourselves. Change is scary, and we have to become vulnerable. To do that means we are stronger than we think we are, and have confidence that it will make us feel better. Staying in our own s*** is warm and comfortable. But it stinks after a while. Tell yourself, and repeat it often, that you are better and bigger than your problems. It's hard, and no one I know here, will say it is easy. We're here for you, and together we are stronger!
