You will, I am sure. You know you have the power to stop the downward spiral before it starts. And, I seem to recall reading somewhere that the liver can be quite resilient, and does regenerate itself. Yes, you should be feeling better both physically and cognitively in a day or so. Just keep yourself hydrated, get some rest and try not to worry.

I haven't been a highly functioning alcoholic for a number of months now, but it has nothing to do with past drinking. I was severely iron deficient for quite some time, and wasn't responding to oral treatment. Then I had a extremely bad reaction to Depo Provera and later fractured my arm and had to have surgery. Being so sick, I ended up quite depressed. It has been killing me to miss work, but it couldn't be helped. But, when I got sober 9 years ago, with the exception of a couple of months I took off when I stopped drinking, I probably only missed about 4 or 5 days total from work due to illness. Getting sober was one of the best things I did for myself.

One day at a time is a good thing. It's all we really have.

Take care.
