first time i posted and not sure advice or someone to agree with me is needed... my sponsor had me write my thoughts and what i related to in the Dr Opinion... i noticed he listed 5 types of alcoholics... you can find them yourselves, and i am the manic depressive type, diagnosed about 6 years ago with major depression. Dr said a whole chapter could be written on these types... ok well no chapter.... what struck me was he said that even our friends don't understand..... i was having a rough time last nite, personal family issues i struggle with... cried for awhile about it.. shared with some friends.... and today i get a msg from one of these so called friends stating "You are on your way out... maybe someday you will get real and honest" maybe not exact words yet hurtful... I did not drink or use any kind of mind altering drug to deal with this... i just felt it.. it made me cry... i felt depressed... so who here thinks that because we have a problem.. we try to share it and just because some don't understand does that give them the right to push you off the fence...?? Well luckily for me i have other friends here that do understand or at least want to.... grateful to finally put something out here that i look forward to the comments... Thanks to all of you alcoholics who know me as another alcoholic..... I am sober today and to me that is what matters most. thanks for letting me share. gette
