Welcome! This is the perfect place...

In my case I never stopped drinking when my PN kicked in and it took 3 months in jail for me to sober up, and I stayed sober (12 years now), so I can 't answer that question for you.

But, as you already know, staying sober is the key here and I think a little accountability may do you well. Maybe AA or Celebrate Recovery or a close sober friend to text\call when needed?

You were drinking like I was and I am SO much better now....hang in there, you can do it!

404 days sober and counting. Best decision of my life. Feel better than ever. More than 2 weeks symptom free from neuropathy, which is a blessing. Nothing was worse than that. For everyone good health! Your body's healing is incredible.

4201 days sober!

Got our first snow this morning!

Doing pretty well this month. No pain, no discomfort and no wobbly walking! Doc says no gym till March 1st so I am just walking the farm road for now. Doing side work while I get my real estate license and then who knows where this broken vessel will go!! Woohoo!

Booked a trip to Israel next January and that will be a LOT of walking....I hope I can do it!

Later all!

Hello all, glad to see you are all happy and well.
Well, I have had a few setbacks but I'm back on track. No improvement in my atrophic legs which is my main concern. Walking is difficult and most I can manage is a mile and I am always worried about falling. I wonder if one of those little contraptions like a Cubbi would be a good idea. I have a very high tolerance to pain so I can deal with those issues and I refuse medication as the constant reminder of my neuropathy keeps me sober but maybe in time when a relapse is less likely. My main issue is this horrific leg weakness. I am in a few online cat groups and no one has this issue but perhaps I am a more advanced stage and I understand that is a late stage just before wheel chair so maybe no one else is stupid enough to let it go this far without getting help.

No one here had leg weakness other than Icehouse? I am hoping that muscles can be strengthened and some of the atrophy can be associated with a sedentary life for many years vs the nerves not communicating with the brain. You think?

Like I have said before, I don't think I will ever be "healed". I still can't run and I do get tired (just from standing) but I am so grateful I can do most activities with ease. My nerves may be permanently disconnected from the brain for all I know, but there are a couple zaps here and there....
