For all of you that have been there with me while I struggle this week.
I'm finally on Day 4 sober.
All of your replies kept me as positive as I could be that I was capable of doing this. I don't have any family or friend support and you acted as thou you had known me for years...holding me up each day I was spiraling in despair.
That was such a ride and its not over..but I see the light now.
Food is tasting better
I have taken a shower
I have been able to watch tv
I have been able to have a conversation
I have been able to walk to the bathroom without feeling like I was going to die.
I still look like death...but I no longer feel like I look. I am still having struggles and not 100%. On a scale of 1-10.....I'm a solid 7 now because of my hard work and ALL OF YOU.
I want to tell anyone that is about to get sober...IF you can afford or obtain medical detox...do it...it is in your best interest and you will be more comfortable.
If you can't...when you plan your quit day...ensure you have some very important things in your house (because I was unable to get some until Day 3 and I was in serious need of many of them):
Vitamins (B1, B12, Vit C, Zinc, Folic Acid)
Get the energy drinks to replace your electrolytes...I used Gatorade and Pedilyte.
Chicken broth or soup
A tranqualizer of some kind
The drinks that make up for a meal (shakes - Ensure)
AND plenty of water
I wasn't able to actually EAT many of those things...but the ones I did were extremely helpful. Today I managed a grilled cheese. And I just received a phone call from my b/f who is out and he is picking up a smorgesboard plate of food...he gave me some choices...and a piece of baked scrod..sounded good to me!
I am living again...and for anyone that is not....you are NOT alone....I especially know what your going thru at this moment....and those of you again that have made it thru and have helped ME....THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
