It's been a week since I've had a drink of alcohol. Erik, the dog and cat are still alive and I'm still somewhat sane. I temporarily went back on my prozac just to get me through my anxiety. Having good and bad days...good and bad moments, but in general hanging in there. The first two to three days were the worst. My nerves were like 6 inches above my skin. Not the DT's...just anxious and jittery. I've seen the DT's with my ex-husband...I wasn't even close. (I honestly think that because of the gastric bypass, my system handles things a little differently...I think the alcohol runs through my system faster so it isn't seeping out of my pores like it does with a normal alcoholic). My poor husband was on the verge of pouring a drink down my throat himself those first few days though...it was that bad. I was basically like DON'T TOUCH ME DON'T TALK TO ME DON'T LOOK AT ME!!! o_O It's better now. ;-)
Right now I believe it's more mind over matter. Just have to look at it the same way I did when I made the decision to have the bypass. I knew I would never be able to drink pop again and I miss it, but it's just something I have to deal with. I think the same is going to be true with alcohol. I'll miss it, but just have to deal with it. It's only been a week so we'll see how it goes.
Thinking clearly now...some things haven't changed. I still love my husband, love my job, want to move out of our house into a smaller place and I still detest Obama, Reid, Pelosi and my brother-in-law. lol! :-)
We had a nice vacation...very relaxing! Didn't do a whole lot...went antiquing one day, movies a couple of times, but mostly just relaxed. Gave us a chance to clear our minds a little bit. We only have a few more weeks left of camping. It's okay though, we have so much to do around the house that we've neglected over camping season. Will hopefully get a lot taken care of over the winter.
It's amazing how quickly this past year has gone. I can't believe it's almost Christmas!! I would swear that we just celebrated that a couple of months ago. It's almost scary how fast time is flying by us. Honestly, the older we get, the faster it flies. (Of course it doesn't help that I was blitzed through the majority of it...I guess that would make it go faster..right?!?!?) sighhh...
Oh well...life goes on and the Bears are 3-0. AWESOMESAUCE!!! :-D
Take care and God bless!! :-)
