re: Karagos back! Had to work out some personal issues.

Hey hey,

I am still alive and im sure some of you have seen me on in guild chat I have had a hell of a last few months. Mostly punishing myself and being depressed after my dad died last year of cancer. I started drinking pretty heavily and abusing some prescriptions. Needless to say that was not the answer. After finally hitting my bottom which involved me wrecking my car going 5 mph in a black out and somehow not getting arrested even though the cops came, whew if there is a god he was looking out. I checked myself into the hospital and ended up having a 4 day long seizure and very minor stroke. Ya don't drink handles of liqour a day you will almost die or die from it... Had no idea how dangerous that was in combo with the meds I was taking. I ended up getting sent to an alcohol rehab and started haulucinating so badly they sent me back to the hospital where I had yet another seizure from lack of sleep and not eating. It was pretty much a living hell for 30 days. I am only 28 years old and I felt like I was 90. I was shaking uncontrollably, drooling, couldnt walk, lost 40 lbs in a week, throwing up even though I had not eaten. I was pretty much kept alive on IV fluids. Anyway it was a crazy experience one that I do not wish to go back to and hopefully people can read and learn from this. I ended up actually participating in the rehab once I was able to walk and learned about Alcoholics anonymous and I started going to meetings in rehab and now I go to at least 1 meeting a day outside rehab. It really is a good program even if  you arent a drunk. The same principals used in AA are really good and are used in other programs for multiple addictions for instance gambling, eating disorders, other drugs, spending problems, and etc. They teach people to be honest and how to live life properly without a drink or other crutch. I am not sure how much I will be able to play since im still in early recovery. Today I have 46 days sober. I got a sponsor and he says gaming is another form of my alcoholism, but my brother is in the same boat and says to just take what he says with a grain of salt. I need hobbies or ill just sit in my own head and that always leads down the wrong road for us alcoholics. Anyway good to see the guild is still going strong and I hopefully will be able to rejoin the ranks soon.  And remeber if you spot you got it :)

 

Sincerely,

Karagos
