I was told that I either had a seizure or was very close to seizing. I was hallucinating and my supervisor at work had to intervene. I am happy to say that I am getting back on track and still have my job, but of course there are always consequences for being a fool. I still can not believe how weak I can be when it comes to alcohol. I appreciate this community very much and appreciate any support.

    Thanks, Joe
    Prayers for you and yours. Hang in there.

    I appreciate all the support from folks. I am getting myself together again. Very lucky God granted my a resilient body.

    I’m glad you didn’t die and are getting better.

    You know what helps me? I remember how hangovers felt and how good it is feeling good again.

    Yeah that sometimes works, but my crooked mind just thinks to drink my way out of feeling bad. Quite crazy.

    A plus is that I lost a crap load of weight. Having Thrush I could not really eat for 10 days.

    Your mind will tell you it's OK to take JUST ONE. It will be different, THIS TIME.
