Throughout my alcoholism I’ve personally felt Stigma’s blunt-force trauma and crushing fear too many times to count.
It’s the number one issue preventing alcoholics from seeking help in time to save their life.
Why the hell do you think alcoholism is one of the few diseases people conceal rather than seek help for to avoid DEATH?
Remember the TV series “All in The Family” from the 1970’s? It was the #1 TV show in America from 1971 to 1976 and regarded as one of the most influential television series.
I’m sorry my fellow, Baby Boomers, yes it actually was that long ago.
I suffered two massive hemorrhages, causing fatal bleeding and a trip via helicopter to a hospital’s Shock-Trauma center.
Miraculously I’m alive. In the aftermath of this horrific medical trauma and near-death experience, I need to talk with you about the Stigma of alcoholism.
