Once again Campral saves me

Posted , 9 users are following.

Most of you know me..and know in high times of stress..I can't function without drinking.....as most of us...

So..yesterday...really bad news impacting my finaces..ok, I will say it out loud..,.the insurance company that was paying me....for 2 years...has stopped my income (this would be the income I use to pay my mortgage..and everything else).

Needless to say...when I realized the magnitude of this...I was in immediate PANIC....I started crying....and my first thought was I need a DRINK..and guess what most of the reason they are using is because I have anxiety and depression and substance abuse..which they only pay 2 years for...

I have been for about 4 months...taking randoms...I talked to the lady today and asked..what about the probable MS and Lupus and the lumbar puncture I am going for????  That is NOT...depression/anxiety or alcohol.

So I can appeal.

Anyway...Campral was actually what made me NOT drink.  As I thought about drinking...envisioning it going down my throat...I really was kinda turned off by the thought....so I got more panicky and desperate...but because of this drug (I KNOW it is this drug)...I got thru it.

I will fight them....I will win...or I will deal with whatever....and do it sober....bless Campral.

      Hi there...I have not WON....its a battle, some days harder than others...but as I said...my "soldier" in my fight is Campral right now.

      I thought you had won this particular battle because Campral worked for you.  I have had it, in the past... failure.

    I'm pleased for you Misssy. You won't like me for saying this, but if I had to place a bet, on the person least likely to succeed with Campral, because they would find an excuse to say it didn't work, well my betting slip would have had your name on it.

    I am happy to be wrong.

      Thank you RHGB....."my betting slip would have had your name on it"...

      YUP...And your right I was very skeptical of the pill...thinking..NO NOTHING will take away my don't give a flying F.....attitude when I am stressed to the MAX...and want to escape.

      I'm glad this hasn't happened YET.

      Well done Misssy. You should be really proud of yourself - we all are 😊
