One of the Queen's of co-dependency here,and you have lots of company, some in relapse, some healed, some where you are, but welcome. First of all, focus on you, leave him alone, let him do what he does, and now its all about you. Look for meetings in your area, either CODA, Alanon, both will help you to learn about living with an alcoholic, and co-dependency. There is also DR. Irenes website. There are shelves of books on the subject at any book store. The key to working on your depression today, is action, inaction is what fuels the depression, so start to get active, walk, go to a gym, get out doors for at the minimum of 30 minuets a day. Changes the chemistry in your brain. Start to write, every morning write what you feel, there is a list here on words to help you identify feelings. Learn about you, learn about what you are all about, and breath. Yoga is great, helps you to clear your head, and focus. utilize this site, to vent, get clarity, and support. There are a great group of people here, and its 24/7 shelter in the storm. You may want to continue to see a counselor, who can help you sort through things, change is confusing, and don't forget it took you a long time to get here, and its gonna take a while to rediscover life, but its out here. Love your self, forgive your self, and get your hair and nails done while your at it. Hubby is gonna freak with the changes, so let him. Read through these threads, you'll see some things, like a mirror, and some really great advice. Again, welcome.
