Went to have my blood pressure checked, which was high and given Amlodipine for that. Also had a blood test which showed elevated enzymes so am awaiting results of a Liver Function Test.
I never considered myself a heavy drinker. Never got drunk. Just a couple of pints most evenings on the way home. However, going through two years of divorce proceedings has meant more regular drinking as a stupid coping mechanism and this has clearly had an effect.
I've stopped drinking now (only been a week but that's a start). Am hoping I'm one of the lucky ones and can halt any further damage and (if I'm really lucky), perhaps even reverse some of the damage. Time will tell.
