    That goes for all of us Mrs A, my heart goes out to you. How are you Molly, also Joe? Was bright leaving work this evening so spring is definitely on the way. We desperately need something to look forward to. Hard to believe that this has been going on for nearly a year.

    Off to get some food and catch up on some tv.

    Hi Rusters..Joe is still in hospital ..the surgical team are meeting tomorrow to make a plan ..so it goes on..he's in better form tho which is super...my eldest son is driving me bananas ..he's being Mr Important about everything and in the process causing anxiety all round..bout Joe and even about the poxy dog..who quite frankly is getting more love and attention than anyone in the family...getting to the stage of not wanting to answer his calls and that feels so wrong..maybe I'll calm down tomorrow!!
    MrsA...don't forget we are here...and whereas I don't normally say this...these are not normal times for you..do not beat yourself up..xx

    Re: Army garrison - February 2021

    Thanks everyone! Feel better about myself now. It did give me a shock that I was quite happy to open a bottle and think I could just have one small glass wine.
    Just had to call the District Nurses out as Mr A was in agony. They have given him IV morphia and is now settled.
    I am not tempted to drink again today as I feel I gave myself such a fright.
    I have had Pfizer Covid vaccine dose number 1
    So tired!!

    Delighted you got the vaccine anyway..poor MrA shocking that he should be in such pain

    I spose the main thing..or one of them. That keeps me sober..especially now ..is the knowledge that if I lift a glass it will NEVER be one small glass of anything and in the present it would 100% be me down that rabbit hole..fair dues to you stopping xxx

    I bet you're tired Brit! I'm sure you're exhausted at this point. I certainly understand the long term grinding down feeling. Then one day you just don't give a rat's arse any more, so you have a drink. I think you did amazingly well to pour the rest out, and quite frankly to only drink half a bottle. I know I would have just drunk the lot and more. Thinking of you lovely lady.

    I'm glad Joe is at least a bit brighter Molly. It has been unrelenting for you, hasn't it?

    Having a bit of a read back.
    If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

    Good to see you Mrs A, you have such courage. Glad your didnt find solace at the end of that bottle

    Sounds very positive about Joe Molly. Fingers crossed for good news tomorrow. And every family has one of your eldest, well ours does and he'd wear you out!!

    Re: Army garrison - February 2021

    Thank you everyone. I had a proper nights sleep as I had a hospice nurse last night who looked after Mr A overnight and allowed me to sleep and for him to be cared for.
    Just getting up now as she leaves at 6.45. Got a flask of coffee by my bed and time for a shower.
    No drinking thoughts last night and grateful to you lot with your supportive input.

    You know..I think sleep and food deprivation are enormous..in my case ..when I'm stressed I can't eat..hence I've literally been living on survival rations since Christmas day..and I'm now force feeding myself because although it's not drink I want..several times I've been gagging for my other addiction..cigarettes....without a DOUBT in the world if there had been cigarettes in the house I would have smoked them...hence my advice to get any drink out of the house..give it to the nurses..anyone..but don't let it be handy xxx

    Re: Army garrison - February 2021

    Good morning everyone. Good advice Molly and glad you got some sleep Brit. Very hard to function when you are exhausted and totally understand the need to get away from things. Well done on pouring half of it away and on reaching out. Mary is right Molly, every family has someone like that. Try to ignore, eat and look after yourself and the puppy.

    Didn’t get out for walk this morning, was lashing rain. Might try and get one in this evening.
