I am working on self recovery right now and that's a strong one for me in many areas. I have let so much of my past build up inside of me and now I am taking moments to handle them appropriately and reconnect with myself. I am not gonna sit here and go oh whoa is me, I am gonna face things head on.
In the last month I have had 3 seizures and I know allot of it was due to stress. I am working on managing that better and am hoping to exercise more now. Some of the things I have started doing is reading, journaling and working on my relationship with God. I am on LOA until 03/24/13 so I can get the further help I need for therapy and deal with my depression. I am not ashamed for feeling this way anymore. I used to use all my might to deny it and that was very healthy for me.
I have been an alcoholic for some time now, too many years and I am dealing with it now by choosing to stay sober for me, no one else but me. With out my sobriety I can't be right with myself or my wonderful children. It's a terrible disease only if you choose to not get help for it. I have allot to take care of in life and many of them is to start making amends in my life with people that I have hurt in many ways. October 13th I relapsed and tried to take my own life which resulted in me being put into ICU and not remembering what I did to myself. During a black out I had slit my own throat and was rushed to the ER. Waking up to 28 stitches, 54 staples and allot of blood lost, I realized than I had a 2nd chance in life to live it right and to live it sober. I am not asking for self pity or to be forgiven, as I am simply sharing my experience and growth.
