Are you ok? I assume you are now home from the hospital.

I'm glad you went to the ER.
I should have when I had screaming high blood pressure and insomnia.
It was terrible and I thank God I got through it.

Don't think I can make it to work today so groggy. Maybe 1 mg of lorazepam is too much and should half it.

Do what you gotta do to stay sober and safe, BecomingSober. If that means missing a day of work, miss a day of work. Your doctor's office should be able to advise you about splitting the dosage in half.

Good luck. Keep posting. We are pulling for you.

Going out to get herbal tea and some B vitamins. Feel washed out and a little shakey. I never want to go throught this again. Maybe 10 days will get me through the worst. Tomorrow will be day 6. Thanks for all your support.

Day six almost completed. I think the worst is over. Told two of my growm kids. Stressful to me because they didn't know I had such a problem. But they took it in stride and seem supportive. Doctor didn't say anything about permanent damage. So I sure hope I can heal at my age. Day seven coming up!!

Feeling O.K. Day 7 almost done. Got to be a two year record. Big whup, I know. Next goal is 12 days which has got to be a 3-4 year record. Another big whup! I did get a list of all area AA groups but not sure what I will do yet. Also got a psychiatrist recommendation-which I will look into. I haven't told my story because I don't want people to think I want a pity party.
