Congrats AW.

Sorry to hear about you medical issues snoozy and Crois.
I'm a BIG chicken when it comes to going to the doctors.

Was reading this today....sharing if helpful.

P.A.W.S. | What…Me Sober?

Hope the rehearsals are going OK, Leshar. Hope you aren't being too harsh on yourself. Remembering lines is probably one of the hugest tasks....I'm still pissed off with my memory. It's just not dependable. Definitely getting better to some degree.

I used to pride myself on my memory , but at times it was a burden as i remembered everything. I had a busy brain and drinking slowed it down .

Now I'm sure i have damaged many brain cells as i cant recall conversations from even days ago at times .

To be honest i don't think i will ever be the same as it's been a year now and it's still crap !

Leah is my husky.
I thought snoozy was asking about the chicken.

I had to take some benadryl yesterday to counteract my allergies.
That stuff knocks me for a loop and I ended up in bed at 9:00 pm.

Thanks, Croissant, for the reminder about PAWS.
I'm so tired and emotionally numb. I know my lines. I can't seem to get pleasure out of anything. I'm worried about being jealous of those who can drink, it's really bothering me.
My faith in my resolve is waning because I feel so flat and wonder why I feel so awful at over a year.
Sorry to hear you've been unwell.

Hmmm, what bothered me about that article is it says (whether medically proven or not, I don't know), that you can make it worse by getting anxious or worried...or some thing like that. But getting worked up can make it worse.

I wonder Leshar, if things will get a bit better at least for you after the play? The stress of it surely is an irritation to you?

I hope so.

I hope we all feel better soon! Bob, put the kettle on.

To be honest, with all the health talk at the hospital....I guess I see the drinking door practically shutting. Which in some part of me pissed me off all over again. Just an alkie petulant child response, I guess.

Hi everyone,

Snoozy and Croissant, I'm really sorry to hear about your health scares. Hope it all gets sorted out soon and that you both feel better! Snoozy, that is a hard decision to make - to stop taking something that is damaging your liver and then risk suffering from depression again. You said these meds were the only ones that have worked for your depression? What does your family and Dr think? Thinking of you both

In-laws are coming over again today to watch/play with my daughter. I got so much done last week when they were here that I am having them come again. Hopefully I will have the energy ....

Been having a few cravings lately. Don't know what that's all about. Just keep thinking about after the baby is born and how my AV keeps telling me that maybe I can moderate again. Ugh, I know better, but it is still there in the back of my mind. Had a discussion with hubby about it over the weekend and he gave me a good talking to

Anyways, off to get some work done. Hope you all have a wonderful day

Hi All. Congrats on all of your success stories. Truly inspiring to hear. I'm now on day 30 (30/6/14) and have had 2 minor relapses but I'm sure that I'm taking the steps to protect my sobriety and there won't be any more. I've not checked in for a couple of weeks and it's good to hear about my classmates doing so well. I won't leave it so long next time.

Well done and keep going

Hi Mate...slip over to the 2014 class....we are last years Julyers. you are more than welcome to post here too though.

Ladybug...sorry to hear about the cravings. Not nice. I wonder if you've explored why you drink further? Is it stress? Escape from worry/responsibility? Regrets? No need to answer...but I worry for you after baby comes. :/

Good Morning. Just checking in to see how you all are doing. I will keep you all in my prayers. All is well here. I am loving life more day by day. I am working out every day in the pool and am getting stronger. I was worried my back would never heal. Now my knees hurt worse then my back. lol Old age is not for sissy's. Big hugs to all of you.

Lol Huntington , you can say that again nice to hear from you .

Hiya MM8RHM , hopefully you are on track now :-) sobriety is worth giving a good hard go , good luck xx

Ladybug , i haven't really discussed it with them cos i try to sort it out myself . I kinda think i put them thru enough whilst i was drinking so I'll sort it .

Ya know it really worries me , this damn AV of yours . I really hope it takes a hike after the baby is born .

I really feel this baby is here for a reason . She is going to need you sober and strong .
I know you can do this . Look at how happy your beautiful daughter is now hun .

She has her darling Mum back . I'm so proud of you .

I know you can do this , you are precious

Leshar , I'm sorry you are still feeling like crap . I just know there has to be a solution for you out there somewhere .

I wish you could immerse yourself and get lost in this play and love it .

I know you have it in you .

It wont always feel like this xxxxx

Has it been hot where you are, Snooz?

We are having a bit of a heat wave here. As you do in freaking winter. I went outside today with my scarf on, and there was a raging hot wind. Well....I felt like a knob.

But it's warm, I say!

I have no suggestions re the meds....except I'd be mad as hell that I had to give them up if I felt good.

Any more results? Would a psych help if only to have more experience with patient results prescribing similar meds that may not have the Pristiq side effects on the liver?
