    Backstory.... Totally stressed out for 5 years and self medicating. I just went through a six month rehab inpatient/outpatient. Still seeing a doctor for mental health. AA is still a trigger (the Catholics had a 40 year start)... but I'm not angry... Yes I lost my job... still be paid on severance (6 months), medical covered it. They want to know what my anger is... I don't have an answer... You people seem like descendants from thee isle of misfit toys... any advice? Maybe this should be posted on the Politics thread...

    Call the Irony Police. We need a ruling.

    Two questions:

    1. What do you mean "AA is still a trigger?"
    2. Who is "they?" As in "They want to know what my anger is."

    If I was your doctor, I'd prescribe Xanax and say, "You're welcome..."

    Why refuse to go to a counselor? That's what they are there for.

    These times are fucked up. And nobody is a loser for consulting a real pro.

    I'm seeing a shrink... have done AA and SOS in the past, (not just once did AA for 4 years including the 90 in 90). I just went through with some bad stuff with basically seeing my father die a very slow death that took 5 years of my life... Did the Xanax route, stopped but my blood pressure was 213 over 117 when I finally got help... (the Doc said "a hummingbird on meth"). I cannot reconcile AA with my Catholic beliefs and SOS is just an offshoot of AA. At a loss maybe... I'm afraid of what I was is no longer who I am and that worries me...

    The shrink is looking for anger... I know he wants a release but I honestly don't have it...

    Many churches sponsor AA groups. Sometimes, that means the "higher power" talk is shaded toward that denomination's theology. Have you asked your priest if there's a Catholic-friendly group near you?
