30 days of sobriety...

Unfortunately my sleep is still all kinds of messed up and I woke at 2:30pm today. I have lost about 2 kilograms in this first month, I say 'about', as my weight fluctuates a lot - so tomorrow I find a different number. I still definitely have my wine belly and extra weight, so it will be interesting to see what happens in this next month. I've noticed I have started to crave sugar and I believe it's because I have missed a few days of Naltrexone. I discussed doing this with my Doctor to see if this was causing symptoms I was experiencing (abdominal pain, nausea, sore joints) and it appears it was the Naltrexone. I am thinking of taking a 1/2 tablet every second day - don't worry my Doctor has approved all of this and that's the beauty of this medication, that freedom is there.
I have certainly been feelings rather down in the dumps! I'm not sure what all of that is about - perhaps the last blog post I wrote which was quite painful to write. It's a general lack of motivation that I am experiencing. I'm not entirely sure how to move past it however I keep telling myself that as long as my recovery is strong, I am strong. Everything flows from my recovery.
