Unfortunately, some people become so stressed, anxious, or depressed that their mood doesn’t improve when the situation changes.In fact, their depression may become so severe that they become unable to work or meet the normal demands of life. During these times, many people hide the extent of their depression and try to “act as though everything is okay.” This often prevents them from getting the help they need because those around them are unaware of how bad the depression has become.Some of the most common symptoms associated with severe depression are: Text

What is a Functional Alcoholic?

The term Functional Alcoholic implies that someone has all of the characteristics of an alcoholic, but they appear to maintain a life of normalcy. They go to work and maintain a family life and look like everything is under control. To an outsider, nothing seems to be wrong. Unfortunately for the functional alcoholic looks are deceiving. If you look below the surface, you often see that the functional alcoholic is experiencing many of the same problems that occur for other alcoholics. For example, while the functional alcoholic may feel that their work is not being affected, they are often performing below their optimum level. They often rationalize this as a “small price to pay” for the ability to continue to drink. They also often begin to experience conflicts in their relationships as a direct result of their drinking. However, instead of admitting that their alcohol use is causing the problems, they claim that it is their spouse or significant other that is the problem. If only they would just quit nagging them and allow them to “relax”, things would be okay. Text
