So I started this whole sober journey at home in my own kinda rehab which involved a sofa bed and a lot of chocolate.
I moved into my sober bed, bought with my first months sober savings soon after. And, I've been in one or other basically ever since then. Often all day. Sometimes everyday. Often working, often not just reading sober stuff. I've declined a lot of parties and taken sober self care when required, often going back to bed.
Its OK for a while and as I work 7 hours a week from home, a skype convo in my bed with my job share (non video) is OK at a push. I can write reports no bother and I'm 'present' in my job now rather than dragging myself through it.
Here's the thing, its unsustainable for me longer term. In fact its unsustainable for anyone longer term, I think.
So whilst I can give excuses like sorry no bra on today, can't come. I really need a boot up the backside or a strategy to get me on the move before gone lunchtime.
I also need to find an additional job. I might need a bra for that. And probably clothes.
I guess in some ways its time to go back into the world, sober. And fathom out what it is I actually want to do and not overwhelm myself in the real world.
Then again I might stay in my pj's until I hear my husbands on his way back from work then frantically get dressed.

Or if you're a more direct kind of person use this!
