Hello my friends,
I have been an alcoholic for 3 years now. I didn't began to drink VERY heavily until about a year. I easily consume a bottle of 40 percent alcoholic beverages. Throughout the week I would drink enough to get me "drunk", but would always try my "best" to stop drinking enough in order for me to make it to work, and most of the times, barely function. By time I get home, im sober enough to continue the process. Due to some life circumstances I was "forced" to quit (for a better of lack of terms, have no access to drink for several months). This helped me get on the right track for many months. I recently relapsed and drank an excessive amount that was VERY harmful to me. I slept for a very long time, waking up in a lot of pain. Every symptom has led to beginning stages of liver disease (including a very small but noticeable yellow color under my eyelids). This has scared me enough to rebegin my journey of becoming sober. I figured I could stop the damage now, and begin the healing process with my liver, but I've still been sick. My "orange" urine has returned back to its clear normal color on the 3rd day. The tiny bit of yellow is still under my eyelid, but I was curious if that could just be my liver trying to heal itself. Or, is it too late and I more than likely have scar tissue on my liver? Obviously, I will get a professional opinion eventually but thats not an option yet. I would like to see if anybody else have gone through similar experiences, and recovered after having "scary" symptoms of liver disease?
Thank you in advance for any help that could be provided.
