Bash away if you must, but please remember, addiction is a disease, and I have asked for help. I recently started seeing a counselor, and I'm getting to the bottom of this. My counselor say I am self medicating, as I have struggled with depression and anxiety for years, and haven't taken medication for a whle. After becoming a mother, it has gotten worse. I'm not just taking care of myself anymore... During my pregnancy, I was completely sober, and while I was breatfeeding as well...After, it just snuck up on me again. A few one night, a few the next night, before I knew it, I was drinking more and more. I have always done my best to take care of my child, he is everything to me. I don't drive drunk with him or anything like that. Anyway, I'm posting anonymous because no one wants to get bashed for something like this. I'm just hoping for some support and/or suggestions. Any other moms ever go through this? Feel free to reply anon. I know the stigma attached... :/
P.S. I'm not a troll looking for attention or anything like that. Just a legit mom hoping for support. :) Thanks!
