I'm not sure how some people may take this post, but since being put on my medication "Cymbalta" as most of you know there is no type of drinking at all due to the affect it has. Now when I go out with my friends mainly on the weekend or just watching some type of sport on the tv everyones having a few beers and talking about what kind of week they've had. I'm not talking about serious drinking I'm talking about social drinking. At my last visit with my doc we discussed the issue that it seems like I'm not involved when out with friends or family as far as that goes because even when we go out to eat most order a drink or a beer and I sit there drinking soda or something else. Ok the important question is do I want to keep depression out of my life, or stop it and be normal again like everyone else. Well that answer is yes I want to keep depression out of my life, but at the same time being out seems like no fun any more. Now I know that drinking is a depressent in itself but I love music and country is my favorite. Here is a example of what I mean, a few of my friends and I went to a very large country nightclub to see a well known singer who knows one of my friends from the industry and I really didn't have much fun, there were plenty of nice ladies there great live music and I just didn't feel like I was fitting in so to speak. I guess I just miss being normal again and having some good clean fun out with my friends. Sound like anyone you know? Thanks for stopping by and reading my post. Is there something wrong about trying to have some fun, and yes I've studied the different ways of enjoying myself without drinking, but it's just not the same due to the social thing in todays world.
