So a couple weeks ago I felt something break inside me. Physical. I just felt broken. I thought maybe I was finally getting old(er). I thought maybe it was some auto-immune mutiny.

I felt like my body was shutting down and I thought I wouldn't last another week.

I know I've been a bit more sour lately, and I apologize for my boorish attitude.

I'll be going back to work soon so that'll take some whoopee out of my cushion.

In my last couple threads I talked about drinking. Well big surprise, my liver isn't very happy at all. I guess it's time to stop that right quick. Over the last couple weeks I didn't even get a buzz from alcohol, just felt resistant and sick. I don't even have the craving for it.

I guess that'll make it easier to kick the habit.

Here's to a dry buddha

oddly enough you just self diagnosed your liver by refering to your mood of late as...sour. In Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, sour is the flavor associated with the liver.

Yeah, like churning bile huh? I can see that.

Anyways I had a western doctor verify, so there's no doubt. It's time to stop.

Sometimes giving your body a break is a good thing.

Though I've always considered the liver a vestigial organ, something we no longer need. Like the lungs or the heart.




Good luck!

Sorry to hear, but glad you are saving your body-part!

We need to keep you alive and frisky here on ATS. The place wouldn't be the same without you.
up:


It's seriously NOT an old age party till body parts start falling off! Am just now recovering from a pinched nerve in the neck, the arm & shoulder pain has been "stunning". Bug-Eyed stunning.

On the bright side it's finally subsiding altho multiple bags of frozen peas & beans have been sacrificed.
LOL!!! Can't believe I'm joking about it. A week ago if I could have cut my arm off I would have.

Livers do have the ability to heal.

Don't worry about it mate, I'll drink a few for ya.

Didn't even start drinking til my early 30's, so I can definitively spare a good few before I gotta start worrying about liver issues.

My lungs on the other hand... Well, I'm surprised they still function, tbh.

I've only been drinking a few years. I have had liver issues in the past so it wasn't the healthiest thing I could've been doing to that organ. It sent me a big F.U. though. Gotta listen to the body.

To a certain extent.
It can takes years for a fatty liver to fully regenerate. And even at that there is always scarring associated with the healing process. People lie to themselves when they read "livers can regenerate", yea if it's 90% healthy. But scarring rarely goes away, it's like scarring your skin, there's always a 'slight' mark there for the rest of your life.

I have a bone spur in one of my neck vertebrae, so I pinch that nerve running down into my arm through shoulder reasonably regularly.

I feel your pain.

And the aftermath lingers for months too. Sorry to say.

Our body is our Temple of Silence that actually speaks to us when we want to listen to it.

Get some TUDCA tablets online to heal your liver. They have them on Amazon. It works fairly quick, like 2 weeks and you will feel better.

I bet it didn't go down without a fight. Alcohol is one hell of a drug. It's a hard drug.

I wish you a long life and prosperity. Pastures new.

Your liver needs a break. A big break.

Good luck and best wishes! I'd also recommend a good and safe liver cleanse. Do everything you can to stay as positive and active as possible. Your body will respond in a great way.

There is no replacement for alcohol but with the endless variety of beverages available you will find your own way to get through it. On this site alone you have many good people who will encourage you and offer support and advice at your request.

Hope you learn to enjoy life again!

I have noted your skepticism regarding plants and minerals as medicine...but a little research in the right places yields results. just saying

My alcohol saga is different. When I was 13, my life went off the rails. (Undiagnosed autism spectrum-related, family, and social issues.) Booze made me feel good when everything else in life made me feel bad, so I was a problem drinker pretty much from the start. Got kicked out of school, then home, and then bounced around in minimum wage jobs until I started receiving per capita (age 21) from a Indian gaming casino of whose owning tribe I am a member. At that point, I had enough money to live on and get drunk every night and I never worked. (This all is a pretty good recipe for disaster.) The petty troubles that I always managed to find myself in headed toward the "serious" variety. With my remaining brain cell, I put two and two together and stopped drinking alcohol. If I didn't I'd be dead or in jail, yet it never got to the point that it affected my (physical) health. Different for everyone. The major, major work for me has been evolving behaviorally and emotionally, even years after I stopped. But I'm grateful for my experience.

I don't know you, but I'm glad you aren't dead. Best luck in your current situation.

Hiya NB, look into NAC - N-acetyl cysteine. Preferably the effervescent form. Besides the alcohol, cut back on fatty and fried foods. Drink lots of water with lemon and also drink some dandelion tea daily. Good luck!
