I am 54 and i have been battling alcholism for many years. I first tried to get sober in 2011 in an attempt to save my marriage. In the long run it did not workout. long story short I have been in 10 rehabs and countless detox. During my divorce I was drinking a half gallon of vodka a day and i would never have hangovers. i finally stayed sober for 8 months in 2020 and 2021. I went on a 8 day binge in 2021 ended up in the ER vommting blood. i had 4 blood transfusions and i was told I was close to death. The doctors told me that I have stage 4 cirrhois with esophageal varrices. I wasnt sure what that was so i had no big concern for that, I have had for upper scopes, 1st- 6 bands, 2nd- 4 bands 3rd- 2 bands and the 4th- 0 bands. They are also doing blood work for MELD- measurement of end liver disease. the score ranges from 6-40 and my first score was 11 and 15-17 they put you on transplant list. I have been a basket case the last year and half, i have two kids my daughter is 11 and i am so scared I will not live long enough to see her graduate high school. Any help or positive feed back would be appreciated.
