have been gone awhile..since my daughter and grandchildren passed in the fire in august 2011 I have been drinking up a brewery.
Good news is I have not touched a drop in 12days..so happy happy happy.
Feel good , my M.S. is controlled by medical cannabis and a damn Effexor a day. There were more Rx a few years back but the mmj helped cut that down. I do have an occasional Naproxen for inflammation and a Oxazepam every now and then for anxiety.
Other than that , life is turning around finally.
thanks ...I spent many days and nites here before the fire...and I enjoyed it here ...lots of great people...but after the loss of my Sarah, Chloe, Maxime and Jacob...I lost it in the beer ...and lots of it ....now I had a choice snap out of it....or loose the best man in my life ....easy ...drop the beer done , fini , capute...xoxo
There is still my wish to sit, hold your hand, and have a good cry with you- Checking out via the alcohol may have been the only way to cope at the time with the horrible pain from all your losses, and I am so happy to read you are stepping back into life and living again, complete with all the joys and heartaches that come with that.
We may be virtual friends, but we are still friends nonetheless and are here for you - there are a lot of people here who can relate to the challenges of sobriety from their own paths. Be sure to come around often for all the support we can give.
Good for your man to help you get back to taking care of yourself. Welcome back.
thank you again feels good to be back and clear minded lol sorta...
my one problem in these first days is a pain in my liver...It is tender, seems better today I gavaged myself with green tea yesterday. Also added a cranberry supplement pill oh yes and H2O my least fav. liquid.
I have uploaded pics of my new couple of Westies and pups...cause if loosing Sarah and the kids was not enough, the day after I buried them, my beloved Westie WALL-E only 2yrs old passed away suddenly and quickly overnite...:(
So I got up...had another funeral for my lil pup....and the next day I went and found these two....they are a blessing and have given me 15 pups in almost 2yrs.
that is it...
I do not know why I did not know what happened to your family in 2011 - perhaps I was offline for a bit or something, but I surely remember you.
What a tragic loss - I am so sorry, and cannot even imagine the grief you must carry with you. Congratulations on your sobriety, and your journey through the dark times. You are a strong woman, or you'd surely not have made it through.
Wrapping a welcome back cyber hug around you and look forward to seeing you around.
well day 19 and my liver pain is gone...geez it was tender there lol
damn ....my inspiration was Athena Lee from the Ex-Wives of Rock...we have been friends on facebook since her show started and I saw her go through many things including cancer and booze...I saw her wake up and I did too. She is like a sponsor to me and I will not screw up comes Tommy Lee's from Motley Crue is her bro and she said she will come kick my butt lol. Hope she brings her brother too.
She regularly sends me words of encouragement. Any reason is a good reason to quit.
Sarah and the Children....Karma will take care of her babies Daddy...his time will come
