Bitter Sweet Anniversary - first step to recovery


Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share that today is the one-year anniversary of the passing of one of my closest friends. That, to me, was the catalyst for me to get where I am today. Already in therapy for depression, this event "broke" me in a deep and profound way. I didn't know it at the time, but it would be the tipping point for me that would ultimately lead me to really take therapy seriously and seek out a psychiatrist for additional help.  So, today, I mourn his passing; but, I also thank him for one final gift of getting this path.

I understand how you feel.  When the person I love passed away I went to the grave every day for 5 years and began walking the track at the cemetery every day.  It was what changed things for me and got me sober.  I lost over 100 pounds and things began to change for me back then.  Those people would be very proud of us today.
