Home detox has been done successfully without it being truly horrendous!! I am now finally on Campral although only just started this on Sunday past.
What I am a little concerned about is how terrible I am starting to feel 14 days in, I really haven't felt so bad since starting the detox. Mentally and physchologically I am well in regards to my cravings and triggers to wanting to drink, it's more my physical health I am now concerned about.
Went to doctors today, have a heavy cold, a chest infection and fluid around my knee cap and wrist which is causing arthritic symptoms and pain. The doctor stated that such pains have possibly always been present it just that my daily alcohol intake has superseded much of the symptoms. In terms of my memory and concentration, I am all over the place. Very forgetful, turning up to appointments on the wrong day or forgetting the times and having to check several times (which doesn't always seem to work either)!!
Is my body just recuperating still, has the Librium worn off and left me with what feels like a battered body? I can sleep for hours, a very new thing for me, and still wake up in the morning feeling like I've been hit by a bus. I currently have much less energy and motivation as I did when drinking.
And then the little voice creeps in!! You didn't feel this bad when you did drink, why are you struggling to manage psychically now?
But no, this won't make me pick up that litre bottle of vodka, not now or ever hopefully!!
Thoughts, advice, criticism all gratefully appreciated and received!!
