In the hospital now

Been here a couple of days.

I (so stupidly)did the home detox so many times in the past. Please please don't try it. I have a lot to handle, but the earth kept rotating and the sun kept rising.

Just to be clear, and NOT to diminish anyones personal experience. I'm not talking about a few days of feeling like crap. I'm talking about vomiting beyond control for 14-20 hours straight. Tremors borderlining convulsions. Blood pressure through the roof. That's just naming the first 40 hours or so.

I came to the hospital this time. Was immediately admitted to ICU. Everyone has been respectful and nice and helpful. They have an addiction specialist coming to talk to me sometime today.

This disease has been the ugliest roller coaster ride for me and I'm ready to get off the ride. If you're in any mood for an eye rolling moment, read my old threads.

Thank you SR!!! For all the continued support.

Glad you are where you need to be! Same happened to me - ended up in ER after huge bender after a lot of "controlled drinking". I can't tell you how important it was to me to get into the rooms of AA first day I was out, get a temporary sponsor, and commit to 90 meetings in 90 days. It may be for you as well. Wish you the best my friend!

You did the right thing going into the ER. I suffered through detox on my own and would not recommend it.

Frustrated and want to leave, of course they won't discharge m me, not tonight

It's not alcohol at this point
I want my house
I want my dogs
I want a real shower
I want real food
I WANT A CIGARETTE

IN a previous life, I ripped off my monitors, pulled my own IV out waked out. Let the nurses know it was running all over the floor. I was stil half drunk so the had cops meet me outside, with car keys in my hand.

I'm staying tonight, but so incredibly agitated.

Thanks for listening

MovingForward - I'm so glad you sought help & are safe. You have your whole life ahead - one lived free of alcohol & the misery of drinking. You can do it - you sound ready. All those things you're wanting right now will be waiting for you.

WITH HIGH AWARENESS COMES THE ABILITY TO HEAL AND CHANGE.
YOUR ADMISSION TO ICU SPEAKS VOLUMES ( I WAS IN ICU- COMA).
I hope you the best and that you recognise the 'next time' phases has nearly closed the account. Support to you.

Real happy to see you found a safe place to be. I've been to ICU more times than I can remember, so I it's not a fun place. Plus I also smoke so I know how you feel. Did they give you a patch?
Regarding missing all those things; sounds like you have a nice thing going for you. Those things will not be going anywhere. I hope you stay as long as the people think you should stay. Take care. John
