Force myself back to work?

I am feeling so lousy on this day 2....again. I don't remember the yucky feelings lasting this long. I struggled to go to the store to buy soup, but I can't stand sitting at home staring at the TV and computer any more.

Should I force myself back to work in the morning, and hope for the best? It would involve seeing many people in public, and talking for a few hours.

When do you just buck up and push through the pain (physical and emotional)?

Maybe not back to work yet but focus on something else.
Maybe give yourself a goal every day. Like go for a walk, fix something around the house, cook lunch for a friend. But don't do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.

I was able to work for 3 hours this's a small step. I'm still sober, and that's a big step.

Be sure you're getting plenty of water, multivitamins, sleep, etc., Dehydration and lack of sleep are things you need to address early on.

Well done Wild Flower. Take it slowly. The worst will be over soon.
