The first couple months of recovery
You probably are going to experience some things that will make you think your going crazy, lets call this lala land. your brain has some healing to do and also some relearning. if you were like me you used alcohol or drugs to handle most situations and feelings. well now we have to learn to deal with them sraight up. no more masking. These feelings that arise in different situations will make you feel like your in lala land, the brain is just trying to function on its own without medication (drugs). The feeling of disorientation and confusion will pass just take it easy find a place to sit down and relax your ok. If you have a close friend to confide in, this is the time to do so. you don,t want to recluse or ignore whats going on, thats a bad excuse to use and thats not where we're going now is it? when your going through the lala period you may feel some of the following, angziety, ancious, bewildered,confused,in a hurry, have a hard time putting thoughts and sentences together at the same time, uncordinated or just a little off balance. keep in mind every day that goes by each of these things get better some you will completely get over others are just part of who you are and have nothing to do with drugs or alcohol. your going to be tempted to start your own pitty party when going through these things and thats a big no no. pity parties cause us to drink so no poor me crap OK? no one should listen and especially not condone this behavior. if they do the're enabling you to a reason to drink. there are no reasons to drink eccept you and me being to weak of a person to get through this. so lets just treat this little lala episode as it really is and just go along for the ride, hell it's not as bad as being stumbling drunk.
I hope you get through this period, there are a lot of people waiting for you on the other side
On this page you will find some help and guidance getting to that other side, when your in lala land we need a that little extra hand, and it's a lot cheaper than a treatment center check it out and don't go this alone, thats like taken a knife to a gun fight.e-mail me and get more support (no obligation).
