Hey, I recovered from alcoholism 23yrs ago on July 31st. I've become really disenchanted with the anti-mental illness sentiment in the rooms of AA. If I hear one more ignoramus spout off about how antidepressants are mind altering drugs I might go ape-spit on them. Now, if the member is an MD then I might want to hear their opinion on the subject. Since my daughter died of suicide from untreated anorexia, MDD, & OCD in January of this year I haven't been able to stand going to AA meetings in person much. I know it's a resentment, but I'm starting to wonder how we alcoholics would have fared had people been so obnoxious in the beginning when Bill W. was struggling with depression and trying every new treatment he could. Anyone else aggravated about this? Or am I just new to the grief walk and too sensitive?
