Addiction and Depression

Post  DHF on Thu Aug 14, 2014 10:20 am

Death of Robin Williams – As a person in recovery who suffers from both depression and addiction(dual diagnosis)has gone through relapse I’m glad this is being shared. Life is fragile at best. This is the second public figure with long-term recovery in three months to die from issues related to addiction the first being Philip Seymour Hoffman.

There is this huge undertone in the recovery community that says “I’m Clean BLA BLA Years” and these same people will make people struggling with relapse and mental health issues feel less then. Then when a person takes their own life over gossip and recovery community social out casting (and it happens) these same people won’t look at their part, they will just blame it on the person’s active addiction.

How do I know this? I was almost there.
