Recently things have not been great for me mentally. Mainly caused from horrible memories from the past. For the last few months I have turned to drinking alcohol as a way of “self medicating”. I feel trapped in my own mind and scared of having to think of certain memories so I turn to drink. I am 19 and I really don’t want this kind of life that I have to turn to drink each time I have something painful come into my head. I ask myself, “why does this still affect me 5 years later”. Why do I keep running to things that will make my life in the long run. I sometimes feel alone in all this but I know I’m not. There is always someone there to talk to, I just need to let people in.
More to come soon.
