Re: Depression, Bipolar and Other Personality Issues.

Another thing, it really helps me to separate alcoholism from MH problems, and treat the two as separate 'illnesses' rather than interlinked. My old thinking of "i need to drink to cope with these feelings" was not only unhelpful but untrue. Cos in the end, any excuse will do for drinking, that was...

Re: Do we really have to tell other people?!
