15 Months and 3 Days
|Tree is Up!|
My cataract is gone, and I have a new lens in my eye.
I don't know exactly how much this surgery will help me with some of my vision problems, as some time will be needed to heal the eye.
I did drive today, and I didn't run myself or anyone else off the road, and that's a good thing!
I still have light sensitively, which is a bit disappointing, but I am hoping this will get better.
It was the lack of depth perception that was really scary, and that seemed normal today!
The one thing I can see are ALL of my wrinkles and this I do not like! (Hubs gave me an ultimatum this weekend…"Stop talking about your wrinkles!" We know how this well this worked. Huh. How long have we been married?)
Today I went to an AA meeting, and I needed to see some real people. Being cooped up in the house is not fun if it's not my choice. So it felt like such a great freedom to drive myself around, and go out! I am so very glad I went. These men and women are a supportive group that lets each person be himself/herself. And because I am a hugging kind of person, I can give and get a lot of hugs!!
I try to be positive at these meetings, because drinking has caused so many people so much pain. When I share, even if it's part of my former pain, I want new people to see there is another way, and it's good. Many of the long term sober people do this, too. They share all the positive things that have happened to them once they turned away from the darkness of drinking.
Life is good without drinking.
In fact it's better, because I get the good stuff without the problems that come from drinking too much.
Yes, I can go out and have fun and not drink.
Sober life is funny, it's crazy, and it's always interesting.
I laugh, I cry, I get mad, I hug, and I kiss hubs.
Especially now, as he just brought me dinner!!
