Listener - Apprentice 8

Listener Rating     
Hi, I'm glad that you came across me. I'm a trained listener who has dealt with a whole slew of issues, both past and present. I am 29 years old and have been married to my incredible husband for 10 years. When I was 16, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder (type 2), borderline personality disorder, and pretty much every anxiety disorder that exists (including panic attacks). I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome in 2009, which completely impacted everything, and unfortunately still does. I majored in psychology, and initially planned on becoming a psychiatrist until the fatigue and pain made it too hard to continue. Also, I have experience dealing with a loved one who has issues with addiction. My husband is an alcoholic (he has been sober for almost 2 years, but the disease of addiction never goes away). Before getting sober, he drank very heavily for almost 5 years, every day. He would have to drink within an hour of waking up, or the withdrawals would start. I have been through a lot, and am still going through a lot. I definitely have a lot of experience with a lot of issues and would be honored to share with anyone interested. The main thing I have learned is that talking about things, no matter how difficult or how much you may not want to, helps. It may be hard at first, but it gets easier with time, and ultimately talking is the only way to truly heal. Medicine may help, but getting it out helps you to heal.
