When is it time to quit?

Good day yesterday.
After 2 drinks last night then taking medication, I feel like throwing in the towel today as I just cannot keep up the act. I am all swollen from my autoimmune disease....feel like a cow.
Just had lunch with my husband and daughter and cannot help but think how much I love them and how destroyed they will be but I am so done ‘living’ like this.
thanks for listening.

Sorry today has been tough. But remember yesterday was better and more importantly you want to get better and you know how badly your family will be hurt if you left them. You have a lot to cope with with your illness but your family love you and need you. Give yourself time and kindness. Remember you are important, you are needed and you are worth it. Xx
 

Were all together

Alcohol and SSRIs share a number of potential side effects. As a result, mixing these two substances can cause the side effects of each to be heightened. Additionally, alcohol can interfere with an SSRI’s ability to manage depression symptoms. This means that a person can continue to experience depression or even experience worsened depression if alcohol is consumed while taking an SSRI.

Thank you. I am just so tired of the fight day after

@Hopeiseverything It is a daily battle but it’s one which will get easier in time. At the start you may not notice that you are on a general upward trend but over time you will notice little improvements. Be patient, give yourself time and space. Think of it as a journey and one day you will look back and notice how far you have come.
We are here for you on the bad days but we are here for you on the good as well. *brohug
