Hello, I'm new here. I'm just trying to get support for a few things. and thought I'd give this a try. I've had high cholesterol probably most of my life. After my dad passed away in 2015, I started drinking more. I'm not really sure why. He lived in another state and I really only talked to him once in a while. But I did love him dearly. I have rules with myself. I can't start drinking until at least 8pm. but then I drink until I fall asleep. I really would like to cut back. I tell myself everyday .....today will be the day. But when 8 o'clock comes around I can't do it. I also have gained about 20 pounds. I know in my head if I just cut back drinking....my weight would come down and so would my cholesterol. So I thought I'd give this a try. Thanks for listening to me. 😊
So, this is my first post. just downloaded this to try it out. I'm currently seven months pregnant. I struggle with alcohol and substance use, as well as anxiety and depression. I'm doing fairly well ATM. been pretty positive and mostly substance free. I'd love to chat with anyone in similar situations or anyone who's gotten through similar situations. I also am into sexual health... I'm pretty sexually frustrated ATM. 🙃
Hi. Im new here. Im wondering if anyone else has issues with social anxiety and alcohol and find it difficult to go to AA meetings. I try to go as often as I can without triggering a panic attack, but, I find that even when I do go, I almost always go to an online meeting with my camera off and don’t talk. Any tips or suggestions? Maybe forums to start on with just messaging others? Or maybe just anyone who also has this struggle who can relate? Im just starting to feel so ashamed of repeating the same thing because my anxiety gets in the way of my recovery…
Thoughts on weed? I’ve heard lots of mixed opinions ranging from “it’s an evil drug that kills” to “it’s a miracle drug that saved me”. Personally it helps my mental health but it can be hard for me to limit my use, I lack self control when it comes to that. So any tips for holding myself accountable would be greatly appreciated🏻
The significance of online communities lies in the emotional support and understanding they provide, empowering patients to express their concerns, fears, and triumphs without fear of judgment. Such platforms foster a sense of belonging and camaraderie, helping patients navigate the complexities of their conditions and treatment options.
