All my other classes were cancelled for today (due to over 90% students having dancing), but one teacher didn't cancel his. **** 😁

You at university?

 

I'm in so much pain...today my wife had me doing a 1 hour sprint session. My legs feel like jelly and my feet hurt...crazy cow is going to kill me!:classic_angry: The whole time shes running alongside me and talking constantly "come on kitty...keep going" and not even puffing. B***h!!!

F-sake a week into my training and I've put on weight! How is that even possible? I started at 66kg and now I'm 67!!! I feel like I've sweated out at least 10.:classic_angry: I'm supposed to be 60 by the end of March, 55 by the end of June and 50 by November and the trek. Before I became a closet alcoholic around 19ish I was under 50 and I was just barely on the skinny side. My frame is so tiny, any weight makes me look so fat...LOL:classic_ninja:

 

I'm going to get a bollocking tonight, wife is not going to believe that I'm following the strict diet. I've had one naughty thing all week! One single little piece of cake.:classic_blush: I haven't even had any wine at all, just lots and lots of black coffee haha.

So...the truth is out...the badgering to go trekking was a ruse (we are still going though), my wife and my parents have been gravely concerned about my health over the last year or so. As I've said previously I had a breakdown because of work stress last year and after that I have stacked on nearly 12kg and have been drinking heavily. My father asked my wife to speak to me about it but she felt that I wouldn't respond well to her being direct (shes probably right...I was in denial I guess) anyway she came up with the idea of giving me something to aim for to improve my health. Today I had a go at her while we were training about me thinking she was pushing me too hard and going overboard and that I was doing her a favour by going with her on this trek. Thats when I got the truth, anyway I was furious and actually went to slap her (omg can't believe I was going to) luckily she grabbed my arm and then next thing I was flat on my back and she was telling me to calm down. HAHA don't attack a Tae-Kwondo black belt I guess. Anyway its all good, I'm prepared to acknowledge my alcohol problem now 🙂 I am hereby going 100% sober for a minimum period of 12 months...hope I don't get too aggro now and the work stress doesn't hit me.

Alcohol withdrawal blows....I'm so irritable and having a lot of headaches. And this week I gotta teach an intensive course, means being in class with 14 students all day for a week, they are going to think I'm a total cow by the end :classic_sad:

Fark...I just totally snapped at a student, she was asking a question about something which I had literally just spent 30mins explaining the nuances of to the class. Without any doubt she wasn't paying attention! Still absolutely no excuse, at the next break we take I'm going to have to pull her aside and make an apology. So embarrassed...I need more coffee. Luckily my teaching assistant (a phd student who I'm supervising) is doing a marvelous job so far, I'm going to speak to my boss about him next week. 🙂

Edit: I think I'm in trouble health wise, I got so nauseous I collapsed in class and vomited on the floor, so embarrassing, they rang an ambulance for me and now I'm in hospital :classic_blush: I think they are going to medically detain me and detox me safely over a few days to a week. I didn't realise that my addiction was so bad😥

Well that escalated quickly. At least you realised now, which is probably a good thing for the future

Though I can relate to collapsing in class and getting an ambulance. It's certainly not the best thing in this world

I'd been a bit dizzy and unsteady for a couple of days and feeling a bit queasy. The incident happened just after I'd been looking through a microscope (eye strain-o-rama!) I stood up and turned quickly and was about to speak to the class and I keeled over. The doctor I saw this afternoon says it will take up to 10 days to detox me :classic_angry: For the first time I was honest about how much I'd been drinking the last 12 months...I got the 'how are you not dead' look from her. 2 pieces of good news though, 1. I don't have to do any training for a while.. my wife was surprisingly sympathetic too and 2. I don't have to go to work for orientation week...which is always a nightmare. 

 

Oh and don't drink black coffee when detoxing, its great for the headaches but really really bad for everything else...drink water and lots of it.

I don't know if I can react to this with a like or not 😁 That's usually my go-to reaction in the off-topic subforums.

My boss visited me this morning in hospital, which was very nice of him.  🙂 Told him I will return to work the week after next and that I appreciate him taking my first week of classes. I feel better today, the stuff they have me drinking regularly is revolting but seems to be doing the job. One negative I've already noticed is my anxiety is starting to return, I hope its not going to come all the way back like before (panic attacks etc.)
