    On March 10th, I ended up in the hospital after I got stupid and told someone on private crisis chat I was thinking of suicide. I was in the hospital for a month. It wasn't a terrible experience like in the past, but it wasn't "super great" either. When I was released, I had the option to go to a recovery house for dealing with alcohol. Long story short, the place was not good, but in a strange turn, I ended up in another one which I'm curently at now. It definelty has some negatives to it, but it has been mostly helpful so far. I haven't had a drink in over a month nearly two months really. And I'm able to get out more than before.

    But there are so many things I'm still unsure about....especially how I feel about dealing with the mental health system. Since the hospital, they don't seem to give a shit one way or another. I sort of do have a therapist I talk to, but I have to wait till funds are in order. I'm kind of tired right now, but there is more to this. Sorry if this comes off as vague.

    I'd been wondering how you were doing. I'm sure there are some positives and negatives to the situation you're in, but I'm glad it's helping in some ways. Try to take things one step at a time. Sending a :hug:

    I like that you're sober. I drank for a long time and went to a drunk farm and a Salvation Army workhouse. I still might drink again after a year off, because drinking is a sneaky little demon. Although I don't think I will, now. It's real hard to quit, but it's worth it.
