It gets better if you work at it. I don;t want to sound like I;m trying to be a shrink or something but you have to work at it and be honest about it. It;s always alot easier to hide from the anxiety and depression, those things hurt real bad. In stead of dealing with my abuse and anxiety I drank and slept around, those weren;t the real issues, those things just hid the real issues. Medications make you feel better for awhile but won;t cure anxiety or depression so be careful with per>
