I had a realization yesterday when I was at my psychiatrist's office. I told him I was feeling inadequate and he asked me to elaborate. I said I felt like a bad wife, a bad mother, and a bad employee. I realize some of this is the depression talking but in the past I have always masked such feelings with alcohol.

I know the twelve steps will help but I'm just at the very beginning and it will take a while. In the meantime my doc changed my anti-depressant so maybe that will help some. I just wish my husband would be a little more understanding. He just doesn't get why alcohol is an issue for me. He could never drink again and not even think twice about it. Obviously, I must have some sort of character defect.
