Help. I feel so alone . I'm 48 and was told I had second stage cirrhosis two months ago. I have been a heavy drinker for the past thirteen years, putting away between six and eight cans of Carlsberg a night. For the past three and a half weeks I've been on the wagon.
I feel tired, down, aching all over and have periods of not knowing what I'm doing.
My wife is still drinking a couple of bottles of wine a night. Whilst this doesn't tempt me to join her it creates tension in my head because I can see what I must have been like when drinking.
My overall fears are with the future. I worry how my health will be affected. I'm so scared I can't even bring myself to book a follow up gp appointment.
