Feeling hopeless and tired

Hey everyone. I’ve decided to go back to rehab for the second time. Just called my doctor for a refferal letter. It was a huge step for me to do, but I know I need it… now I’m gonna pray to survive this day sober.

Glad you decided this, accepting help is allways a good thing. Hope you can go there soon. Be here much to read and talk, it will help to pass time sober. You can do it, I know you can. You are stronger then you think!

Thanks, I know you’re absolutely right but it’s just the disease that’s fooling with my mind right now and make me think like that

I have felt the same way myself at different times in my life…

I feel like asking for help is one of the bravest and strongest things a person can do. This is the opposite of what failure looks like to me. I wish you the best but it really sounds like your humility, courage, and determination are going to take you where you want to go. You’re a soberf*ckingsuperwoman :purple_heart::hugs::muscle:

Awww thank you so much! Your comment really made my day, you’re absolutely right just like the rest! I definitely won’t give up :muscle:t3::heart::heart:

I agree with all here. Asking for help is a sign of strength. A sign of understanding we can’t do it alone. Because it’s true.You’re strong. You don’t crawl away in a corner and feel sorry for yourself but you take action to better yourself.
It’s also why being here helps. We do it together, we find strength in each others stories, struggles, successes and failures too. Together we can beat this. One day at a time. Thanks so much for being here and sharing @Supersoberwoman . You give me hope.

Here’s an update: I’m having an intake on Wednesday next week at the rehab facility. I’m happy that I’ve called but I’m also not 100% sure if I still really want to do it. I still have to tell it to my family, but I’m scared of their reactions, because it’s going to be the 2nd time…
