Broken perhaps, but we sure did a hell of a job to “mend” it, no?
And no, can’t say that I do either. I just bought an expensive bottle of grappa in a liquor shop as a present to my wife, and didn’t even make the connection.

Or did you mean broke? 😉 I started working again, biting through the PN obstacles. Going fine so far, back on the horse. Another step in the recovery.

Congrats again on your marriage BTW!

I do NOT miss alcohol at all....
Thats great to hear Icehouse. Support from family gives me strength.

I could live with some lingering issues like that. But I try not to think of results and just focus on finding a process that I enjoy.

Getting cold here in NYC. Which means I wont be riding my bike across the 59th st bridge to work. So my morning includes a bit more time at the gym it would seem.

Another adjustment that I will be focusing on is getting a new job, one that allows some days that I can work from home. I worked from home for 7 years, and almost drank myself to death. After being back in the office for 6 months, I find enjoyment in it. And having the challenge of getting there by bike was awesome. But at the same time, I benefit for a few more hours in the day to be able to get things done while I feel strong in the morning.

Agreed. That was my biggest mistake! I loved having my own business (and I did really well) but I lack the ability to drink responsibly

Well, I'm mostly working from home again - which ain't a bad thing given the PN is usually most noticable in the morning.


I've obviously deleted the whole "drink at the same time" routine, and I'm not too worried about it this time. But I do remember how devastating it was not having to go out and being able to drink without anyone really noticing. I would have walked into trouble a lot sooner if I hadn't worked from home.


It's fun & exciting - but also a wee bit scary - to start this new chapter of running my own company again - after being a "houseman" for 8 years. I thought I'd find cobwebs in my brain, but no, it's all still pretty sharp, and the energy is there too. This time however it will be without my old companion, Mr. Jameson.

Good luck on the new chapter Wide-O. Sounds exciting. Bet you still have it.

Interesting that your symptoms for PN come in the morning. For me, when I first wake up things are pretty quiet. No burning or shocks in the morning really. However they are really sensitive to being put down on a hard floor. Once I get moving though things are pretty good. Its all about getting the circulation going in the morning. I have been doing a few good old fashion jumping jacks in the morning that I have found really help with that when I'm short on time. Most days I can get a mile run in which sets me up for success for the day. Last night was a brutal one for sleep though. Which came out of nowhere because as of 9pm I was feeling so good. PN is so weird like that.
