My lifeline

This is like a lifeline of hope and I want to let everyone no I still need to see hospital dr 25th so I'm counting days down as I cannot put everything on here yes like a lot me life is consistent with no help but that ain't true is it as I have the greatest help warmth and love from all of you and without you lot I would have lost me mind me will to go on totally isolated but knowing that someone somewhere is there without even knowing anyone the real support is here . Thanks everyone

Hi there. Good luck. One year ago I nearly died from ALD, I am 60. One year on I have given up Alcohol completely and joined AA. I am not religious but becoming more spiritual. I am 100% better in myself and have 6 monthly scans and blood tests for Cirosiss. Maybe this year I will go on holiday. Being informed helpd me manage the future rather than live as I previously did in denial. I am am starting the 8 week OU course (free) on looking after your liver. Let me know if you need any details. Take care and keep in touch.

I’d more info on free course you are taking. I am so disappointed in my liver doctors and the help they give me. It’s like they just wait around for the worse to happen and the only advise is cut back on sugar, salt, and alcohol. If you would send me info I would appreciate it.

Hi. You can ow to register at futurelearn.com/courses/liv...

It is sometimes hard with busy GP’s, but my advice would be to push for a referral to a consultant so you can get a scan and full assessment. Let me know how you get on? Any problems with the course link let me know.

That was really lovely reply, love to you and all. XX

Because of the laughing and joking and the the helpline lady and all of you I'm not scared to come on here and look at me posts that I can't even read , or being told off as I got confused thought I was on the complex PTSD forum it may have been other way round hence no replys.

Story of my life!

Hi faithful

I'm ok. I have overall list a bit more weight. I will soon be at what is considered the healthier max for my height instead of overweight.

Had a good Christmas. Got a bit of a site throat today but going work today. Due to illness and holidays i have been away for a while so it will feel a bit strange.

Take care
