You all have inspired me.

Stay happy and well.
I'm here! We are here as a "family" too, so it's great to see your progress.

I attempted the 3 mile hike today but it was SOOO busy that we opted for a walk around the lake instead.

Bought a house today too, a cute little three bedroom brick on a 1\4 acre. Probably close in June when all the electrical and plumbing have been upgraded from 1954 to today

I slacked off today so I am hunkered down with my laptop and wings trying to get 8 hours of billable time in....LOL

My Mood: Alcohol Induced Neuropathy Part 2
Default

Sorry that I have been AWOL.

Earlier this month a big tree fell down at the top of my property, destroying my power line (it produced a big blue flash which excited my neighbours). That took a day to fix.

It also destroyed my phone line (= no ADSL2+ = no Internet). This took longer to fix.

SecondChances and Icehouse - it is good to read that you are both doing well .

When in prison and living on the streets did you ever even dare to dream about a house? I am so very proud of you. A true success story!

OMG...no internet? That's enough to drive me to drink. My computer crashed a few weeks back but at least I had my smart phone.

Well, this is not my first house, but it is the first one since being incarcerated! So, yes, it feels great!

Yes Icehouse, I remember your story, having had so much only to have lost it all for a time. Congrats on your new home, job and life.

I am doing remarkably well. I just went out to the food store and hardly gave my PN a thought. Then I remembered posting how months back I was at the store and had to leave a nearly full cart because I knew my legs would never last through checkout. I was soooo discouraged that I could have cried. Yes, I am much improved though I still have a long way to go.

Beautiful day here. After a very long winter it is good to see the sunshine and a 70 degree day.

Enjoy.

I remember that feeling when I would forget my cane at home

Usually when I feel as if I am improving there is a slide backwards but I have continued to hold onto the progress. All in all I believe I have made perhaps a 20% improvement, or maybe more. Most has just happened over the last few weeks. I have made no changes and the only thing I can attribute it to is time, patience and this forum for encouragement.

One note in clarification,....I had posted awhile back that I started Metformin for my high glucose levels but I did not continue with the meds and so that has not been a factor in the improvement.

I am very optimistic and for the first time in a very long time I believe I might still salvage my limbs and a life. I am hopeful and grateful for all the small signs of improvement. Just now I was outside for that morning smoke and I remembered posting here that one morning my legs completely gave away and I slowly sank down to the ground. I remember several mornings after that dang morning smoke that I stumbled or crawled inside to fall into the sofa. I have had none of that in weeks.

For any newcomers that might be reading here, what has helped me much is keeping a PN journal and writing down some random notes here and there. The mind forgets and the process is very long and slow. It is only by reading back that I can realize how far I have come and this journal has been a helpful tool in keeping me sober and giving me hope. Give it a try!

Best regards to all my friends here and thanks for letting me share.
