I've been upset a lot lately. I just moved across the country and have been married for a year to someone in the military. He has been gone a lot so I've been extremely lonely since I don't know anyone in the new town I'm in. While there I saw my doctor and she prescribed me Wellbutrin. I've been taking it steadily for about
a month now.
After getting my prescript
ion I decided I needed to come back to the town I grew up in and since I've been here I've been acting crazy. I drank with old friends on my 21st birthday and got extremely drunk, made an ass of myself, and was so flirtatious with everyone I talked to. It has been bothering me the past few days. My friend suggested that I go to counseling because whenever I drink I get flirty with anyone. She thinks I have an underlying problem, such as I don't get enough attention with my husband because he's always gone and out of contact. I just saw it as normal that people get out of hand on their 21st and it was kind of a socially expected thing. Ever since her and I have been talking though, I feel really guilty and I've been in and out of crying the past few days. I just want to go home and try to feel better with the new life I have waiting for me. My husband gets back soon and we agreed to spend more time together and go out and do more things, but I feel like I have to wait for him to get back to feel better because I can't think of anything to do to help myself.
The Wellbutrin isn't really working anymore and I feel worse than I did before I was on it. I have had an alcohol problem since I was 18... So I wonder if there is something worse going on with me and I need advice on how to feel better about
my past and how to start moving forward and making the right decisions. Am I the only one out there that acts like this and does a lot of things they regret? I'm absolutely embarrassed and I need help. I have to wait to see a counselor until I return home in a few days, so I would like someone who reads this to help me. I need to talk to someone who has felt this way too.
