Not much blogging from me today as I am unwell, and have been in bed sleeping most of the day. I don’t really know what’s wrong, but I came over very tired and shivery about 8pm last night. I left the family to their Saturday evening and retired to bed. Slept 13 hours and woke with puffy face, streaming eyes and feeling wiped out. Hopefully it will settle by tomorrow, this day of enforced idleness (I didn’t even make it to yoga) is most unlike me !

In between sleeping I’m conscious of being SO HAPPY I did not drink yesterday, just so relieved and thankful that my continuous sobriety is intact and that my withdrawal from my family today is not self inflicted.

I’m going to take real note of this feeling, examine it, reflect on it, and really THINK about it. I want to be able to use today’s feeling of relief in my ‘sober armoury’ next time I think having a drink is a good idea …


  1. Take care of yourself lily and I hope you feel better soon. I haven’t heard the word poorly used in such a long time, it provokes childhood memories. It is a quintessential English saying and I love it!
