Hi,

I’m an alcoholic and suffer from bipolar depression. The depression has gotten worse over the last several years. I have never taken medication for it.

I realize it’s a cycle. I often get sober for months, and then see no reason to get help for drinking, as I’m much more positive, active, and accomplish a lot. But inevitably it falls apart again.

I would like to talk to my doctor about treatment. I’m mainly interested in trying out some medication for depression and doing therapy.

But I fear that if I tell my doctor that I’m an alcoholic, it will “stigmatize” me (end up on my record for life.

I want to support others going through depression and anxiety disorder. I’m willing to give the first 20 people to share their story $300. We are ONE and One is stronger than half

I live in New Orleans btw. Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Holmes
