My Story – By Anders:
When my wife left me after three years, my world fell apart. I became very depressed. I couldn’t get out of bed in the morning, let alone motivate myself to work. The depression dragged all my confidence down with it. I was living off Vodka. I couldn’t eat anything. When I eventually dragged myself to the doctor, he prescribed Prozac. But even when the Prozac kicked in, I still needed Vodka to help me sleep.
Lying in bed at night with a bottle of Vodka and a packet of pills, I didn’t want to wake up in the morning. The alcohol blocked out the pain for a while but it always resurfaced. I couldn’t believe I would ever feel better, but eventually somehow, with the help of family and friends, I slowly started to become ‘normal’ again. Now, over five years later, I’ve got a new life. I’ve moved town, gone to college, and have a new girlfriend. I look back at that time and don’t know how I survived all that abuse to my body.”
