D-day results

With the understanding that addiction is a disease and the realization that we are powerless over it as well as over people's lives, we are ready to do something useful and constructive with our own.

Then, and only then can we be of any help to others.

D-day results

Post by belkar1 » Fri Nov 10, 2017 12:04 pm

Morning peeps,

THANK YOU ALL for your kind words and love.

My hubby does not have the disease we feared !!! MS, (there I said it) excellent news. He does however have a partial blocked artery in his neck. IT can be fixed !!!

Life changes, diet changes, and being mindful about stroke. He will under go more tests, medication, perhaps surgery depending on the percentage of blockage. He must also reduce his stress, with AS being in jail again. He will let me talk to him when he calls. Its not forever but for wright now he will focus on his health. He understands that being mindful about his blood pressure is a must.

All excellent news, who would have thought a blocked artery would be welcomed news. I must tell you the relief, made me ugly cry.
That's OK wash, rinse, repeat natures way of washing out the yuck.

We will have a new normal with many changes, that's OK I am more bendable than a 2X4 now ;) Hubby can learn to love veggies :o

As for our AS well he is 37, it was his choices that put him in jail. I will love him forever, his life is his. With all the rights and responsibilities that go along with it. I guess for me distance helps, he is not around the corner he is thousands of miles away.

I have stepped out of his way, his consequences for his actions.

I will talk to him when I feel I can, I will not send him money, I will focus on ME and hubby. I was taught again how precious every minute is and how being kind and saying what I mean without being mean. Helps my peace and serenity, because believe me this rattled me.

With Love

Glad for the good news and for your strength in facing hubby's treatment.

Doubly glad you are using your tools while interacting with your son during all of this. Not an easy feat.

Thoughts are with you all, of course.

Thank God for your husbands diagnosis.
I am so happy for the two of you.
I know how challenging it is-throw 1 active addict in with 1 recovering addict-add a cup off one senior parent with dementia and one senior parent with no pyhsical health, and you have either a mix for disaster - or my life;)
I am grateful for every good thing, especially my parents-I owe them the world, but I know I am lost in here somewhere,
And I pray for it to end.
When my parents are gone, i hope to be on a small island somewhere, just me and my spouse, living out our last days alone, independent and free!
Thats what I envision anyway!
Take care of yourselves first now!
Love Susan❤️
