I learned a valuable lesson tonight. I underestimated just how strong I really am. I am an alcoholic, I have been sober since 3/23/09. I quit cold turkey. I was also recently diagnosed bp. I have family and friends who are still drinking but most of them are very supportive of my battle for sobriety. It's challenging sometimes when they drink in front of me. I've held a bloody Mary in my hands and tossed it in the garbage. Tonight a family member brought vodka and whiskey in my house. I didn't drink. I had no desire to. I realized that I was not more fun when I was drinking! It's sad for me to watch alcohol affect people I love! I hope they get help, but I know I can't force them to get sober. I just keep praying for them. I thank God every day. I can't do this alone.

in the hospital the dr bumped up my lithium from 900-1350. He regularly asked me if I was experiencing any side effects but I didn’t notice the tremors till yesterday. Then today I was loom knitting and the tremors are really noticeable. My needle is not hitting its target as quick as it should.
I spent six weeks in the hospital following my overdose. I’m heading home now. I quit my job and will be going to intensive outpatient program. I’m just happy to be going back to my family. I missed them dearly
