I Got Lost
Hi WA family, hope everyone has been doing well, staying safe and healthy.
I have been away from WA for about a month. I lost my way and I am trying to get back. Sometimes things seem to be just too much for me to handle and I find myself like I am on a long and lonely road.
Things just got overpowering for me. I suffered a case of severe depression, picked up a bottle of booze after several years of sobriety. At first, that first drink tasted really good and was fun, then the second and the next thing I know I was in the hospital.
I apologize to my WA family and will slowly ease my way back to a great source of friends and a great program.
I see a lot of success stories and I congratulate all of you for never giving up. I did and ended up in a very sad and lonely place.
I will never let go of the faith I have in the WA community. This is a one-of-a-kind great place to be.
My foolish pride got in the way, and I did not reach out and ask for help. I felt ashamed of myself as I did let my WA family down.
Please if anyone feels down and feels like things are getting too hard to handle, no matter what the situation may be, reach out and ask for that help. There is abundant help here within the WA community. No matter what your issue may be.
Forgive me for not being there for you.
I love you all and will try my best to be a better friend.
