Right, so mild depression has definitely set in. Part of me has given into it for now (doing escapist things) and part of me is fighting back (communicating with others, focusing on homework to get out of my head, etc.).
Just finished reading a chapter about addictions counseling with the LGBT population. As much as I’ve thought about counseling the population in general, I’d never really considered the added stressors as they pertain to addictions. I take a lot for granted, it would appear, when it comes to issues and resources for maintaining sobriety once achieved. I’m wondering if this could be my focus for the addictions project I’ve been struggling with. It’s something to think about and take up with my professor on Monday.
