So, as of today, I have been sober for 7 months. I have been in my monitoring program 3 months (participation wise) and 1 month 2 weeks since I signed my recovery monitoring contract. Hopefully, in a month and a half or less (I don't know what date it goes by), I will be looking for my first nurse job.
I have countdowns. I mark another day off each day. It helps.
You know the old saying.......one day at a time! Sometimes though, it's one hour
at a time, one crisis
at at time, one white-knuckle-hanging-on-by-a-thread MINUTE at a time. Always be prepared to be challenged at any given moment---the world doesn't care if you're not feeling well and don't think you can handle more than one or two issues at once, sometimes you're just gonna get slammed.
It's how you react at those times that will spell success or failure in sobriety. As a fellow nurse with a dual diagnosis, I personally feel that you are up to the task.
Keep on keeping on, my friend!
