Overdone, do you know how many people I've heard say that "AA didn't work for them" over the years? LOL! It's an excuse! It's because they don't work the steps, get a sponsor, and most of all get honest, plus REALLY want to stop...and see it as their only hope for quitting. One only gets out of it what one puts into it.
Good luck with the doctor! See if you can make a follow-up appt. with the GI doc or get a referral for a hepatologist (better.)
Good morning. It would take a miracle for John to go to AA, but I do believe in them. He threw away all the literature and he said he would never go back. My dad went almost everyday in the beginning also. He made two very good friends and they were together often even after he stopped attending the meetings. He preached to his kids often about abusing alcohol and none of his kids are drinkers. We still remember what a horrible perwson he was when he drank. When we go out to dinner on a Sat. night, we'll have a glass or 2 of wine. That's the limit.
When I got home John wasn't feeling well. He said his stomach was bothering him earlier and his legs and shoulders were achy. He gets his days mixed up and is very forgetfull. We have he doctor's appt. tonight and he thought it was last night. Can anyone tell me why he is always cold. He's been wearing sweats and a velour robe and has a quilt on him most times.
