It's my birthday DC. I don't feel older but I do feel wiser.
I've managed to remain sober and will be marking 3 months (without relapse) very soon. This is truly a miracle for me and I'm so proud to be able to say that. I haven't celebrated my birthday without drinking in many, many years. It's going to be different, maybe even strange, but I think I will get through the day just fine. I'm still fighting off the urges but they're not as strong these days. When faced with temptations, I've been occupying my mind and my time with other things/activities, and it seems to be working. But I'm not out of the woods yet, and may never be, so one day at a time will remain my goal for staying alcohol free.
I owe a great deal of my new found wisdom to All of you. I've learned a lot within these past few months about this thing called diabetes. You've answered my questions (and still do), led me to useful information, showed me different/better ways of dealing and maintaining, encouraged me to remain strong in my journey, and so much more. I'm truly grateful for all the love and support you show me every day.
My family surprised me with breakfast in bed and has instructed me to take it easy all weekend, and leave Everything up to them. Is that awesome or what. I'm sure they're planning a couple of things but that was enough of a gift for me.
Birthday hugs to you all and be blessed.
