I just passed my 10 yr sober date on the 29th. Its good being sober but the crap in life still goes on.
There was an incident at work tonight that sent me into a panic attack, with anger at myself, the perfect situation that i used to drink over. I am worried that my mistake will cost me my job. And that my mistake will have the night shift without enough work for the night. .
But hell, at least i am sober.
Im 42 and have been drinking heavy for about 7 years. I have been having alot of pain in my upper left and right abdomen. Went to the doctor and today i got my lab results back. I have to say i am pretty nervous as the numbers show possible liver or pancreas issues. Obviously i went and threw out all alcohol in the house and am quiting cold turkey, I do know the risks and will be monitored...
I am very proud of myself, it hasn't been easy. I feel so much better mentally and physically :)
