There have been a few times when a member of my family has been ill (Physically or Psychologically) and I find the best thing for me is understanding. Understanding an illness, whether it be Schizophrenia, Chron's, Depression or Cancer, makes it seem less scary to me and thats how I cope. The answer certainly is NOT in the bottom of the bottle. I have been tempted so many times just recently (and I actually did once) but it made me feel even worse. This is because alcohol is a DEPRESSANT. There is nothing in having a glass of wine or whatever to unwind, but it is not the answer... trust me, ive looked!
Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
