I don't know what to say because I don't know you, your experience, etc. But I'll just say what comes to mind, being in the same boat as you (it
seems) and also drinking! Although beer.
I've had several things going on in my life recently that are tearing me up. I have many friends I can turn to, and have talked with them about it,
but they all have the same thing to say. They are probably right, but it's not what I wanted to hear. I already knew what they told me, I just don't
want to accept it. So talk with your friends and any close family you have, if there is an answer, someone might lead you down the right path.
Then there are things going on right now that I have no control over, where there is no choices to be made, stuff that I just have to deal with and
wait it out, and hope it gets better in the future. There is really no advice to receive, but it still feels good to get things off your chest, and
talk about them with those close to you. The idea being, each little chat allows you to get rid of that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach one
bit at a time. Might work, might not.
Then there is drugs, alcohol, self destructive behavior, exposing yourself to extreme situations for the distraction that provides. They all work to a
certain extent, but also have their own problems that come along, and none of these things is a permanent solution. Kind of like a band-aid on a
bullet wound. You may stop the bleeding, but the bullet it still lodged inside you, and you've got to take care of it sooner or later.
In my opinion being around people is the best way to feel better. When I'm alone I drink. Or listen to music so loud my ear drums feel like they're
going to explode. Or go for a walk, and usually end up getting into some trouble, or starting something just so I can have some sort of distraction.
Going for a drive is nice too, but after 7-8 beers, I'm at least responsible enough to take that option off the table.
I know it's hard to do something when you don't feel interested in anything anymore, but just do something. Something that you've never done, or
something that you haven't done in awhile.
It's kind of like the blind leading the blind here, but figured I'd just throw that out there. I hope things get better for ya!
