Back to Work
Getting back to work is always a trip because I must pull it all back together. I did experience one day last week going the whole day and night sober, of course I felt like shit and I felt I was coming down with something, until I realized that it was just stress and that when ones whole life has been using when stressed it's like I just have no other coping mechanisms except getting fucked up. I was at an administrators meeting after school hours, where we all met at a casino to drink and plan special events for kids (scholarships, awards ceremonies, fundraisers, etc...) . It's a regular monthly meeting where all is free (food and drinks) and where all these administrators get together and drink (mostly mixed drinks),...crazy!
I couldn't really keep track of my intake other than I did go the whole week off coffee, that in itself was quite a buzz. I just maxed out on green and black tea all day long. One thing was that I had more energy late night than usual, however, I still am getting up in the middle of the night. In fact one night I woke up at 2am and stayed up for the rest of the day!
