In reply to depression and alcohol--is my pdoc right?, posted by raisinb on April 9, 2009, at 10:41:20

Maybe it's because sometimes people with mental health issues self-medicate, rather than alcohol being a cause, so doctors somehow link the 2? But..

My very first PDoc, years ago, told me I could not even have *1* drink because it would affect my depression. Not one per evening, not one per month, not one EVER - for the rest of my life.

She had issues!

She was really mean too. She told me I'd never have the ability to be happy in life. Now this is after but 4 visits with a severe depression. I think she was projecting; I had never seen her smile-not once. It was as if her face would crack.

She scared me away, and she was only the 2nd worst one I ever had, not the worst. Well, I'd only tried 4 altogether..But why on earth do medical schools accept these people?

BTW-I like Bushmills, single malt. i haven't drank whiskey in a long time, but you kinda have me craving one...In the past, when i used to go out alot with friends, once in a while, exsp in the wintertime, we'd do a shot or two of whiskey. It's a nice buzz sometimes, different than wine or beer. I used to make Irish coffees on Christmas Eve too, and have a couple while I was doing all the cooking and party preparation.

Let's have a virtual drink then--cheers

[_] shot glass :)
