Day 5... Again

So, here I am on day 5 again. It is exactly 6 weeks since I started my blog, full of enthusiasm and hope for an AF future. I lasted 32 days before I decided I was 'fine' and started drinking again. So glad to be back here again!

I had a really flat, depressing day yesterday. I just had no motivation and couldn't get out of the slump I was in. It wasn't until I picked D up from school that I started to feel better. I guess there will always be flat days. But I just felt SO depressed and down. It was awful. I have to remind myself that's it's only been a few weeks since I found out my dad died, and that my emotions will probably be all over the place for a while.

I slept a bit better last night, so feeling less tired today. I can't wait till I feel refreshed and full of energy. I didn't get there when I did Dry July, most likely because I gave in so soon afterwards, but I am determined to get there this time! I know it will take some time to get my body in a healthy state. I've been abusing it for so many years so of course it's going to take time!

  1. You should read about paws. Drinking can impact your physical and mental well being for quite some time. It sounds like that's something you are experiencing. It's good to know it will pass.
    It takes a long time to get the effects of drinking to go away completely.

    1. Yes Anne, you are probably right. I will have to have a look into paws. This is all so new to me so I really appreciate your advice and support. Thank you. Ax
