Some roses for you..
Whilst it's true that on the 8th of Sept., 2016 I already had eight years of sobriety behind, nevertheless life got a little challenging. When I underwent an emergency life saving operation followed by five weeks in a medically induced coma.
The cause of which was a bacterial infection followed by concerns over a line of sepsis. Of which if and when I regained consciousness, no one could predict the outcome or what state I'd be in?
Drinking aside, but not complacently so,I'd already faced a lot of adversity in my life but recovery from these events. Even now three years on hasn't been easy...
Anyway, I came across this today and with recovery in mind I thought I'd share it and 'some roses' with anyone who is cares to read this thread,
' Instead of complaining that the rose bush is full of thorns, be happy the thorn bush has roses,' - Proverb
I'd rather go through life sober believing I'm an alcoholic. Than drunk trying to convince myself I'm not.
