I am not even trying to healthy...why am I not trying?????

Baby steps. No alcohol at the house. Walk everyday. Start with 15 minutes daily then increase. No need to pay for the gym if you are not using it. I do yoga at home but have not been motivated to do the yoga everyday.

I understand. I have struggled with occassional binge drinking/eating and snacking on junk food during much of my life. It helps if I focus on what I need to do (verses don't do)--as in taking time to prepare and buy healthy food (eat a healthy breakfast, otherwise hunger will eventually make you reach for the wrong things).

Unhappy Re: Bizi's thread:

With a ton of meds:
80mg Geodon
100mg lamictal
20mg melatonin
(long acting and short acting)
100mg atarax/visteril
200mg seroquel
600mg of lithium


I could not sleep and had restless leg syndrom majorly so finally got up and out ear plugs in, hubby has been snoring and got up to take 3mg of klonipin. I needed to sleep. Which I did finally and slept turned off the alarm and went back to sleep until hubby came to check on me at almost 10.
I wonder which med gave me the restless leg crap????
The seroquel gave me an elevated heart rate...don't know how fast but it was noticeable.
Called clients to rearrange schedule.
I am afraid that was going to have to be admitted to a pysch ward in order to get me stabilized...Want to avoid that at all costs....

Unhappy Re: Bizi's thread:

We were away over the weekend. Traveled to pensacola beach to celebrate our 23 wedding anniversary. We ate and drank too much and I did not sleep and had restless legs. I think I am having side effects from the lithium: Swelling of my hands and ankles, diarrhea. I am supposed to drink a lot of water which I have not been doing that. Wonder if I drank more if that would help with the swelling?
sigh
bizi who is very tired and onto my 3rd cup of coffee.

Red face Re: Bizi's thread:

I just had my lithium level drawn and it is fine.
I definitely need to drink more water. I called the pdocs office and reported the side effects. She did not comment about the side effects...only that she thinks I need treatment because I don't stop drinking.
I had less than 2 beers tonight after work. Will try to stop after that.
I really hope that I can sleep tonight.

Try not to beat yourself up about drinking too much on your anniversary. It was a special occasion--Congratulations!

I assume you went out to have the beers after work. (It seems like you eat out a lot).

IMO it is harder to stop drinking when our spouse still drinks. Alcohol started effecting both my spouse and I's health when we got older (for me, it raises my blood pressure when I have more than one drink) so he never drinks and I rarely drink now. I might have the same struggles you do if my spouse hadn't quit. I am glad he did.

There are two things that make me want to drink more than I should. 1) When I am with other drinkers who drink a lot and are encouraging me to drink. 2) When I can't sleep at night because of unpleasant thoughts that won't stop playing in my head and there is alcohol in the house.

I notice you do not talk about how your relationship with your spouse effects you and admire that but you might need to have him "buy in" to the need to have less alcohol around the house in order to ease the temptation to drink. Hugs.

@TunedOut

Thank you for the note!
I think I got some sleep last night so that is good.
Hubby only drinks a couple of drinks. Vacations are different.
We drink a lot at the beach.
I am getting on the scale today...
facing the facts.

not as bad as I thought.

I slept well the past 2 nights, only drinking 2 beers. Hoping that I continue to sleep well...I see dr. orazio next week....not looking forward to that. She thinks I need to go into treatment for alcohol addiction.
sigh



Just got back from dinner with my girl friend melissa. On Friday, She is leaving for a 100mile walk/pilgrimage thru portugal and spain....by her self!
I told her she was very brave.


I wear ear plugs at night now and they make my ears itch and my right ear is sore. This way I don't hear Jeff breath/snore.


I pulled my back a few days ago....still hurts but I think it is a bit better today.

I think 2 is the magic number.
My AA sponsor is letting me go....
Although we are going to a concert tomorrow night: woodstock 50th anniversary concert.
Carol is 20 years my senior so this is her music.
Should be fun.
I will be sad to lose her support.

My insurance has a large deductible and my therapist costs $98 an hour. I really like her. Have not seen her in a long time.


I slept great again last night!
Think I have finally figured out how to easily put the ear plugs in.


weight down a pound 187.7.
Getting my hair colored this morning then 3 clients this afternoon then concert. The reason Carol is releasing me as my sponsor is because I am actively drinking...and not trying to stop.

So AA does not fit into my life.
