A new perspective

Despite twenty-three years of sobriety, I still experience times when I feel like I want to end my life. The section on depression in the October issue gave me great hope. I was thinking that I had to keep this problem to myself. After reading the articles, I realized, once more, that I don't have to be alone with this illness, and that taking a psychiatrist's prescription doesn't make me a hypocrite in AA. I am grateful to the members who contributed to the section. They put this issue into perspective for me.
