    Really.. really.. upset.

    Just had a shitty meeting with new psychiatrist, and they've basically just labelled me a fucking alcoholic. On top of that, they refuse to work with me until I sign up to the local drug/alcohol team. Fuck sake! I am NOT an alcoholic. I don't NEED alcohol. I'm not my mum, nor my dad.. I've lived with alcoholics, and holy shit.. I am not like them! I don't depend on alcohol, I dont need it, I just want it because it helps dim things. I use it because I can't deal with being inside my head while sober. So what if my liver and kidneys are damaged.. that's supposed to make me wanna stop? I'm actively suicidal.. I clearly don't give a flying shit about my wellbeing. Fucking hell. This is all just bullshit. They didn't like me the moment I walked in. Just trying to pluck reasons out of thin air to refuse me help. Pathetic little dicks.

    Might be worth signing up anyway, who knows the drug/alcohol team might be more helpful than you are finding the shrink. :unsure:
    And if both your parents were alcoholics then you may have a predelection to alcoholism, best to nip that in the bud as soon as possible. :hug:

    hun ,

    you know where im coming from , maybe you don't see yourself as an alcoholic and only you can make that choice for yourself but maybe what terry suggested would be helpful , you cant live forever numbing the pain because the pain just comes back worse when u do have moments of sober time. i remember for me that it got so bad that my friend would wake me up with a a coffee and cig , he had already been to the dealers place made up the gear and gave me my first hit of the day while i was waking up in bed ... that's where it took me.
    love u Hun and don't want to see you end up like i have , am always here if you need someone to talk to , you know that call the alc / drug team they may be able to help you more so than your pysch .

    love u long time

    yuo may not be an alcoholic but using it as a crutch so to speak ("it helps dim things") is not an ideal thing when it comes to drinking.

    "I use it because I can't deal with being inside my head while sober."
    things like this are a bad sign too. i don't know the details but the local drug/alcohol team surely should work with your psychiatrist for your benefit. it doesn't mean you have to be a drunken waster of anything.
