Life in recovery
Now that I am in Recovery, I realise that I have problems with the Foundation Stones.
This is my new term for those things we would need to form a foundation..
for example self knowledge, financial security.
Depression affected my foundation stones.
When I came out of depression, I realise now I had done little work on those issues.
My illness struck during my formative years, and all my resources are tied up with defeating the illness.
I had little time to worry about or invest in foundation stones.
Which means that I have that work to do now as an adult and after the years of illness.
A lot of the pressure that I experience in the present time comes from this.
