I have a drinking problem, a general anxiety disorder for which I'm taking Cymbalta, and, at this point, feelings of depression. I feel both a lot of guilt about letting my life get to this point, embarrassment about needing therapy at all, and I'm not looking forward to talking about any of this with anyone. However, I'm aware that I need to overcome these feelings in order for my life to improve. Any and all advice would be appreciated. Throwaway email: firstname.lastname@example.org
