So I'm at that point again, where I've begun to vomit through stomach acid and heartburn - and I know that the varisces I have are now active again because I'm regularly seeing blood. Just spots, rather than vomiting pure sheets of blood as I was two years ago, but still scary.
I'm seriously trying to stop drinking again (I only started again through stress) but I keep getting told that I can't just stop cold turkey (which I REALLY want to do) because of my epilepsy. Apparently my meds will temporarily stop working and/or overdose me if I just stop, so I don't know what to do. Is it worth asking to go in for rehab? My consultant knows I want to quit again, but all he knows about my epilepsy is that stopping cold could potentially cause a fatal seizure.
I really don't want to have to go back to hospital, and I certainly don't want to be playing the liver failure/potential cirrhosis game again (I still don't know if it was really cirrhosis because my liver allegedly recovered, but varisces is kind of a good indication that it probably was).
Any advice please? Cutting down has failed and I just want to stop without potentially risking my life.
