Alcoholism is no longer the main struggle in my life.
I have been officially diagnosed with PTSD. My brain feels like it has betrayed me. Even the smallest amount of stress is unbearable, anxiety is high all the time.
Funny- as I write this I realize how lucky I am to NOT be a drinker anymore. I cannot quantify what is going on inside my mind but I know I am better off than many who attempt to drink away the horrible feelings that they have.
I have an invisible wound that I cannot explain or understand. I just know I am glad I don't have the added issue of drinking.
I am thankful to be sober.
