Hi,

You aren't whining, you are being very articulate about your pain. This is a safe place to discuss that pain.

I'm bulimic, which like alcoholism is an addictive disorder. I've had some major setbacks lately and finally opened up to my therapist that I'm afraid she'll abandon me if I tell her I binged.

She assured me that she will never abandon me, and we'd work something out that I could see someone else and her. Your pdoc might not have much experience with alcoholism, like my therapist doesn't with eating disorders.

Your pdoc won't get sick of you, you are just struggling with depression and he should understand that. That you aren't drinking to try to end the pain makes you strong. If you join the circus you are the strongwoman.
