    Oh, sweetheart! I'm so sorry for what you've been through, but this has GOT to be you're turning point. You've been to Hell, Pompey, now you have the chance, and resources, and hopefully, the will, to climb all the way to the top. I'll walk with you, if you'll let me. I have no magic answer, but it took a while to get where your were, and it will take a while to get out. So glad you came back here.

    Crikey PM, that was some experience.
    I'm really pleased that you got through it and came out the other end.

    PM - sorry to read about your frightening experience. But if this is your bottom and your turning point, then it's a good thing. You are right - take advantage of this time off work to focus on you and your healing and recovery. I am a member of AA too and it has helped me immensely along with My Way Out. The face to face support and opportunity to make new sober friends is precious to me. I hope your experience is similar.

    Strength and hope to you,

    DG

    PM,

    I am very grateful that I have never experienced something like that- it must have been terrifying. I'm glad you came out of it OK.

    Strength to you!
