At least this week...
Remember how I said I was so anxious for 2010 to start? Just to get over the drama and stress of last year?
Every week, since January 1st, something lame and stressful and all around fucked has happened, starting with my eye infection on January 2nd.
My dearest friend had a seizure last night. No longer able to drive, tests, medical bills, etc... My heart breaks for her.
Hubbs had some blood work a while back, and the test came back showing he has low blood sodium. One of the causes of low blood sodium? (Which I finally got around to investigating today) Excessive beer drinking. Hello, alcoholism. Can't pretend anymore. (Though in his defense, he drinks over a gallon of water a day and is on high blood pressure meds-diuretics. And we don't eat processed food)
Today was just so high stress-worried about my friend, realizing that yes, we are probably alcoholics. And of course stress makes me want to drink, which I can't do anymore for several reasons.
Knocked off the getting my shit together horse, but god damn, I am jumping right back on.
I can drive Dear One to work- relieve some of her stress, and get to spend a little extra time with her.
Finally, a real reason to quit drinking-since none of my other real reasons have stuck.
This too shall pass.
