Unfortunately my plans for the weekend include drinking myself to sleep .I would start now but I have 2 go make in 2 work .I am trying to fight it but am tired and frustrated. Hope the rest of u are doing OK."

I'm really concerned about your drinking. There are other ways to keep the pain at a tollerable level.

And if you are taking anti-depressants and then drink to excess, you are wasting your money. Alcohol is a depressant, so your meds and alcohol are working against each other. Work with your doctor to get off the medication...many have very bad side effects if you don't taper off correctly.

I care about you very much. I wish you didn't drink.

Love,
Mary
