And i was feeling so cocky..

Well, as I approach 3 weeks, today I had my first real test. Up to this point I was feeling rather pleased with myself that things were going so smoothly...easy almost. No real withdrawal symptoms....no major cravings.

Well today my AV showed up from its hiatus...."hey, remember me? The one who wants to ruin your life?....I'm baaack!" Boy did I war with it a good part of the day...maybe I had low blood sugar, anxiety...but I was feeling fluttery and almost light headed. Voice kept whispering that a drink would make me feel better.

Thankfully, I won the battle, and started to feel better too. Boy am I glad I am now getting ready for bed knowing I will wake up tomorrow with another day firmly in check! Today was a tough one, and I now realize there will likely be more of them.

Just want to thank you all for helping me through! Was so helpful to me.

Have a great rest of the weekend all!

These things happen. For me they became much less frequent. I can,t recall the last time it happened. Over time i got better and understanding my emotional state.

Stick with and these dramas wil be a thing of the past

maybe I had low blood sugar
I still have issues with the AV when I get really hungry. Keep some food on your stomach! You beat it and that's what counts!

That is awesome, Dolly! Those days are so hard, but the payoff at bedtime and the next morning is so worth it.
