Day 30 - A few sober things to remember
1 - I found sober friends, who understand. I can't thank you enough to know I'm not alone.
2 - My head is clear, it might be a bit out of sorts but its clear.
3 - I'm participating in my own life more, in small ways.
4 - I sleep much much better once we get to sleep. Might need to invest in anti-husband-snoring earplugs, who knew he was so noisy! I've always fallen asleep drunk.
5 - I may be grumpy and overwhelmed but I'm happier even if its just a spark of happy in a big puddle of meh...... I'll get there.
6 - I'm taking care of me and eating breakfast and better food.
7 - I'm less paranoid. [who said I wasn't......:D]
8 - I like me more, I'm just not good with RL friends and family at the mo. But that's probably more about me than them.
9 - I need a virtual sober toolkit, maybe like a big purple sober suit, with a sober floatation device like a rubber ring and some big oven gloves to stop me opening wine sometimes so I can laugh at myself. I need a real toolkit too with snacks and good distraction techniques in it. Maybe I also need a sober cape, how cool would that be, whatever works.
10- I need to know that each day I'm here, it will get better. Other bloggers and sober online friends tell me it will. I believe them, as I'm not as unique and broken as I once thought I was.
I do waffle on, so thank you for getting this far! If you've something kind or helpful to add or just want to say hello. Please drop a line below. I'd appreciate that. Thank you.
