Dear Friends,Some may have read my earlier posts. I picked up a drink in February after over 8 years sober.I was a mess.Thanks to your support and going back to meetings I'm 6 days.I'm going back to my home group again tomorrow night (Friday night here in Sydney).Today I stayed home with my son who has the flu (so do I but that's no surprise the way I've been looking after myself - not).Each day I'm the tiniest bit better. The mornings are the worst when I wake up in complete anxiety and run to the bathroom. It's going to take a while for my mind and body to settle down. It still surprises me though that with no alcohol in my system my body is in a mess. I am still exhausted.My husband still isn't really talking to me. We have a LOT of issues. He has his own addiciton issues to deal with. Funnily enough I'm handling it OK because right now I just don't have the energy to concentrate on anything else but the kids, work and recovery. The house is a MESS. I was going to clean it today but I just couldn't.Anyway friends. Thanks for being here.Jenni
Congrats on 6 days sober. Just keep going one day at a time.
