Don't know if any of you know anything about it

karenanne Sun 09-Jan-05 19:22:56

whats up carla...i'll try to help if i can?

Carla Sun 09-Jan-05 19:27:59

karen, I'm sure it's alcoholism. Just need some comfort, which I can't get from d'h now ...

karenanne Sun 09-Jan-05 19:29:24

im sorry carla...sending you hugs ,why cant your dh help?

kalex Sun 09-Jan-05 19:29:54


Does this mean that you are doing something tommorow about your alcholism???, sorry if i am wrong

Carla Sun 09-Jan-05 19:33:43

karen, thank you so much. A lovely MNer booked me an appointment, and it's for tomorrow at 9.40. No probs with that, and no probs about explaining how worried I am about the amount that I drink. But do you think she'd give me some AD's too? I'm soooo worried.

Carla Sun 09-Jan-05 19:35:26

And I don't want to be with dh anymore ...... sort of, if you know what I mean.

I think you need to be 100% honest with the GP and they'll talk through the possibilities for treatment and together you can come to a workable solution. Do you want ADs ?

Best of luck and courage

Carla Sun 09-Jan-05 19:38:28

Sorry I probably should start a new thread for this, but did AD's work for anyone?

kalex Sun 09-Jan-05 19:39:01

Carla, you need to be completely honest. Tell him everything, you can, and you need to, Big hugs for tommorow ((((((((())))))))))))))

karenanne Sun 09-Jan-05 19:42:01

carla..youve mad the hardest step by admitting you have a problem with alcohol.tomorrow will be hard but as ncmm says be honest and tell them how you feel,theyre there to help.if you feel you need ads then ask.

as for probs with dh ,i suggest one thing at a time ,youve taken a big step by admitting your problem i wouldnt try to tackle two at once.

thats if your able to hang on in there with hubby at the mo.

i'll be thinking of you and i hope all goes well

Carla, I think you are very brave to admit to your problems and to try to change. Best of luck for tomorrow xxx

Carla Sun 09-Jan-05 19:48:22

Thank you karen, I know it sounds cheesey, but it's been really nice to have someone to talk to

GRMUM Sun 09-Jan-05 19:49:00

You've done really well in taking this first step and should be proud of yourself. Hope that everything goes well tomorrow, let us know. Good luck.

Carla Sun 09-Jan-05 19:49:08

Oh Carla. {{{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}}

Newbarnsleygirl Sun 09-Jan-05 19:53:21

Try not to cry and think to yourself that your going to get better because your going to make the first step tomorrow. Like the others have said tell them everything and I'm sure you'll feel a little better.
Good luck.

I agree with what has already been said but wanted to post just to add my support.

I think you need to give your GP the full picture, so if you are feeling low and feel ad's would help, them tell them that.

I can understand how nervous you must be feeling about tomorrow, and I hope that having taken this step things will start to get much better for you, and that you get the help you want.

Good luck and (((hugs))).

carla, karenanne is right its a major step realising that you may have a problem.
Re AD's they work for some people and if you think it could help you, discuss this with gp.
