Rehab Detox Day 7

So it is a Sunday and I am awake at 7am - wake up on a Sunday is usually 8am, but my body clock was so used to the 7am wake ups. Breakfast was lovely this morning - scrambled eggs and toast, and yes, I did coat mine in Marmite.

After breakfast I had my medication and then headed off to Church. It was much more lively than the normal church services we do in this country, which was a relief. (I do believe I did also let out a bop or two to a... [read more]

Rehab Detox Day 6

Woke in the night after almost having an accident - so I informed the staff when medication was being given out. They said that it was perfectly OK and that they will find something for me. The staff know about it, plus one other does too, they assured me it is nothing to be ashamed of... support like that really helps me feel comfortable.

After breakfast and meds we went to the Centre to begin our morning group session, which included picking a topic at random from a basket and discussing it. Afterwards was a... [read more]

Rehab Detox Day 5

Woke up to our morning meeting, breakfast and medication.

We left for the Centre and had our Thoughts and Feelings session, which was a nice way to start things off - by knowing how everyone is doing. Following that we had quite a deep session - one that I personally didn't feel comfortable being in. I didn't participate vocally much though because it was a bit too much for me to digest (and as I couldn't really relate on a personal level, I felt a bit out of place). You could tell the mood of...

Rehab Detox Day 4

Fourth day in and I am still feeling amazing that I am waking up sober and not having any shaking to contend to. The only issue I am currently having at the moment though is a slight pain in my right kidney and also my neck feels stiff, although I have been assured by the staff that this is normal coming off the alcohol.

After breakfast it was medication time and I am now on a lower dose (4L, 4V). Following breakfast we went to the centre to begin our sessions for the day. The... [read more]

Rehab Detox Day 3

Awake for 7am to begin our welcoming session for the morning. Breakfast followed, which I enjoyed my Marmite on toast (seriously, I absolutely LOVE the stuff!), then followed medication time (5L, 4V - I'm now on 5Ls now instead of six, it's the beginning of the weaning off period now).

Proceeding breakfast we arranged the future food choices for the house, then we had a group session on the topic of Domestic Abuse/Abuse and how it affects those around us (And remember, domestic abuse isn't just the generic view of Person A beating Person B... [read more]
