I’m Calling Bullsh^t On Myself.

Okay, so I just got done commenting on another blogger’s post today that really had me stop in my tracks and realize something: Does it REALLY matter, if I am an alcoholic or not, if I KNOW that what I’m doing doesn’t serve my goal of greater health? No, of course not. I’m still not sure if I am an alcoholic or not, but I’m obviously not doing things that are logical.  I mean, I struggle with mental health issues, and I’d like to think they are acute and not chronic, but it makes absofuckinglutely no sense for me to be pouring gasoline on a fire (Just in case some of you aren’t aware, alcohol is a depressant).

On my post, from earlier today, I was referencing that I was feeling like crap and I was trying to blame it on my diabetes, but that IS crap.  BECAUSE, I’m a diabetic, the decisions I make should be about doing what’s best for my health – PERIOD! (I love ironies…I used an exclamation point to emphasize a period…hehehehe).  This reminds me of that old adage, “Excuses are like assholes, everyone has one”, and it is so true. But I had one follower express to me I’m “not an idiot” and I really appreciate the positive encouragement, because the reality is that pulling together for people is what life is really about, isn’t it?

The bottom line is that I have a ton of things going on and I WANT to do things that handle my challenges in a positive way, so I need to do exactly that. I’m not sure if I’m an alcoholic, but I damn well know I’m treating my stress in life with alcohol. I want to be healthy, but I am not making those decisions.  This shit MUST change NOW! I always like the fact that I’m able to pull myself up and start a new day, but I’m beginning to think that new day would be better if I didn’t have to repeat it over and over and over again. So, fuck it…I screwed up, but I made the attempt. Today is another day, and although it began a little rough, I’m recovering, eating right and drinking water (okay, I had a cup of coffee this morning) and I can make it.

So, maybe I’m not an alcoholic, and maybe I am, but does it matter? I can still be on…

Day 1!

I fucking deserve to live!

(Again, I apologize for the vulgarity, but I’m a little pumped up.)

  1. I love it when you get all fired up. I’m fond of saying anger is an energy. Getting little pissed off feels good to me.(Not saying I want to be mad all the time, mind you…) but it makes me take action. I’m thinking maybe you’re like that, too. Day One: you do fucking deserve to live! ❤

  2. You had me worried. You know what I mean.
    At least you’re better now.
    Dinners and work events will happen. If you can make the right choices on the other days, these events won’t be a problem. I think it was bad timing. It happened just as you had made your decision and felt so pumped. Don’t stay down. Be sure you deserve better.

  4. I’m the same exact way !! I drink to deal with life . I have no idea if I’m an alcoholic but I’m sure life would be better for me without alcohol in it. I also suffer from mental health issues and alcohol definitely doesn’t help it. I feel your struggle . Keep your head up 🙂

    1. Thank you for the comment! I appreciate the support and I am in no position to decide if another person is an alcoholic or not, and truthfully, it’s something I go back and forth on. I’m sure, on some level, just accepting that as a reality would give me a path to dealing with it; but, I have this idea that by admitting it, I’m admitting defeat. Admitting defeat is so against my character, that it is a tough place to be.
      For now, I’m refraining. But I do know that the alcohol is only fuel for mental health issues.
