Re: Mostly Sober

Hi all Welcome PP, great to have your company here ;)?

Re: Regrouping

Hi Regroupies, Just checking in and saying "hello" and want you to know I am reading posts and thinking about you all. I have not been successful in having many (any?) AF nights lately and just groan inside when I think of trying to be sober again. I always wind up rewarding myself, and it all goes ...

Re: Grief and Loss

<:)> <:)> Thanks all <:)> <:)> I think I will look into bereavement counselling next week. It couldn't do any harm to speak to someone who's not affected by it. That's one of the things really. As I said earlier I felt so f*cking angry when I read my step-daughter's FB post. I wanted to ring her and...

Re: Regrouping

Yo my people! Back from gym via Lidl where I picked up a few plants. Yoga and spin classes done. 535 calories - boom! I've been to the gym 5 days in a row because I have been fortunate enough to have the free time this week, it's been good. It's not showing on the scales yet though :roll: So have o...

Re: Regrouping

It's not boring Zippy - and it IS totally exhausting. Remember to look after yourself in all of this - it's a good idea to make sure you've got easy-to-cook/prepare supplies of food and AF drinks to hand. If you're anything like I was after my OH died, it's tempting just to snack and not really bot...

Re: Regrouping

Swordie and Finley, Thanks for your kind and understanding replies. Yes, BE is the best place to be and I have stayed away because I've gotten back into my nighttime drinking groove again. Over the past year or so, I had surgery that has helped my atrial fibrillation tremendously which made me feel ...

Thanks Danny <:)> Yes, life does feel unreal at the moment and there's so much to do - which I've never done before. I'm a complete novice when it comes to being responsible for everything after a person dies. I've a doctor's appointment this morning and also will take all the medications which OH ...

[quote="Finley"]Hmm. Came back to find OH very unwell from the effects of radiotherapy. Stayed there last night and had to call the doctor out for an anti-sickness injection plus some more medication left to use today.

Re: Regrouping

Hi Chris Cole/Drew, Just wanted you to know I'm thinking about you. Unhappiness is beneath so much of our need to drink and my heart goes out to you, especially since you are so young (from my motherly/grandmotherly perspective). In retrospect, my biggest regret is that I didn't like myself when I w...
