Well last lot of meds for detox last Sunday and the week went well apart from problems with balance and coordination, which I was told is a side effect of the clorodiazopoxide although almost a week on am still having some balance issues. Saw my GP yesterday and she said give it time for my brain and body to adjust to the missing 19 years of alcohol. On a good note my blood pressure has come right down from sky high and my kidney test is now okay. Liver function still high but down from 109 to 98. Will be having it tested again by my recovery nurse in 2 weeks so we'll see. Haven't had any vodka since starting detox on 19th quite pleased with myself. I know there is a very long way to go but committed to it now. Started Acamprosate to help with cravings. My counsellor,doctor, children are so proud of me and can't express it enough, on the other hand my husband has just checked I'd been taking the meds. No praise or "well done I know this is hard for you" which I have pointed out to him and he wasn't happy with that. No surprise there then.
Gosh I've rambled on chaps sorry about that but I just wanted to share with people who will understand the enormity of this battle now going forwards.
