deric (Street Articles Author)

Hello, my name is Deric I am married with three children. We live in Bellevue, Nebraska. I worked for the Department of Corrections for 14 years, until realizing that I was not happy anymore and I resigned. I had developed an alcohol problem over the years, don't feel it was because of my job but felt that the job was not helping any. It can be a stressful place to work and a very negative environment. How can someone be happy walking around not being able to trust anyone around you all day. It got pretty frustrating and I was not happy, therefore not happy at work, not happy at home.It was time to do something about it, so I checked myself into treatment for acloholism. I completed treatment and decided to resign from the career that was bringing me down. I am now going back to school for chemical dependency counselor and have my own painting business, to help supplement income, while going to school. I have 18 months of sobriety now, a happier marriage, and a far better relationship with my children.
