I have only been going to Gam-Anon for a few weeks and it is already my life line. Feeling scared, lonely, afraid, ashamed and not knowing where to turn. I was advised to go to a Gam-anon meeting and don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t have gone. I did have to build the courage to go and I’m not going to lie I was petrified. But being in a room with people who understand what you are going through, who don’t judge you and can help you with their experience is so reasurring. They help you see light at the end of the tunnel. They are there to give you a shoulder to cry on (which is what I have done every week so far) and to listen to you and help you try to build yourself back up again. They offer sound advice and help you deal with the situation in a positive light. You exchange numbers and they support you through the week. It is so nice not to feel alone even if it is just for one night a week. To feel you can be yourself and not have to put a front on for the world. I think I would go insane if I didn’t have Gam-Anon. If you are reading this now and are unsure what to do or where to turn the find your nearest Gam-Anon meeting and you will find help, support and friendship waiting for you there. You are not alone – however funny that sounds, its true!
