Facing a confusing or complicated situation can feel debilitating. Often the way out is to simply start gathering facts. If you are wondering if your partner has a drinking problem – go to Alanon and learn the facts about addiction. Anxious that you might have a serious disease? Tell your doctor and get the prescribed bloodwork or tests done. Worried about something in your building or neighborhood? Contact city hall and learn what resources are available to you.
Before you go into a tailspin of worry, get the facts. The facts will usually present you with a logical course of action.
