Usually I am on the Colitis forum, but I have had some drastic changes in my life. I have always had anxiety around my colon issues. I have been taking Zoloft, and Xanax. I have been drinking pretty heavily and I recently came to the conclusion that I am an alcoholic. I stopped drinking and have begun tapering off the Xanax. The last two days I have been more depressed than I have ever been. My therapist thinks I am more depressed than an alcoholic--that I have been medicating my depression with alcohol and xanax. I'm so confused. She wants me to stop drinking and taking the xanax so I can work on my depression. Should I still go to AA? I am so scared, and now I feel so out of control. Has anyone else had experience with this alcohol/depression problem?
