Topic: Share what you know
When you live with an adult or adults who suffer from addiction life can be tough. It is important to remember you are not alone. Feeling anxious or depressed may not mean that you are the one having mental problems. It may just be your very being telling you that you are overwhelmed with what's going on in your home. See how others feel. Share your concerns with firstname.lastname@example.org.
Listen also to what others are going through. Whatever you do don't self-diagnose yourself. Again, remember feeling anxious or depressed may just be a warning sign that life is at the moment too tough. Seek a group like Alateen. The good news is if you don't have a group near your home you can do it on line at al-anon.org/electronic-meetings This web site will not only lead you to the online Alateen groups but will, if you prefer, tell you how to join a group over the telephone.The important thing is if you feel rotten don't just take it do something. Join a group. Such action will calm your anxiety and depression because it will show you that you are not helpless.
