day 5 long hard day

Hi everyone.
Today wad a very long day 5. I almost gave in. I'm a teacher and today wad my first day back after summer vacation. The beginning of the school year is always stressful, even though I love my job. Anyway, after school I got a call from my cousin and my grandfather had been taken to the ER. The doctors thought he had a stroke, but it turns out he has a large mass in the right side of his brain. They think it is. a tumor. He is 83 and I'mnot sure if he will make it. I really wanted a drink when I got home, but I resisted. I just don't know how I will deal with it if he dies so early in my recovery. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't. Post.

Sometimes we just have to try and churn them out one day at a time, be in the moment and disreguard the future .
Also, there is no situation you can't make worse by picking up a drink.

Prayers to whomever is listening for you both , M

Drinking will only make things worse! Stay stopped, stay strong, feel what you need to feel so it isn't stuffed inside.

You CAN get through this sober!

Love & hugs,
