    Yep.
    Russ said it all!
    Thanks so much Sharon for sharing this very personal story.
    I for one, admire your spirit.
    You will get through this.
    You truly are an amazing woman.

    OMG, I would have loved to slug both the biter and the shoe thrower, but teachers can't do that anymore!! Even though the biter was mentally challenged, I think a quick hit may have had him think next time he bit. The 7th grade shoe thrower will probably be suspended for a day or two.

I donít drink not regularly.. I donít really think about it unless Iím at a social (cookout or party) and even then not a lot. THIS WEEK I SO WANTED A BEER .. Just something A MIXED DRINK.. something to just unwind. It concerned me because that wasnít really normal for me ?... Yesterday I thought the hell with it I survived HELL WEEK, Iím having me a drink. I talked to a couple folks who have had the surgery and they said I was way to close post-surgery ( not yet ). I read your post and it was like WOW !!... I better wait . YOU TO ME ARE LIKE THE POSTER CHILD TO WLS. You are such a teacher !!... I see it through your post . But to be able to ADMIT you have An issue u got to address.. THATS SO MUCH MORE !!... U are a LEADER thatís real.. itís not all GOOD !!... but you post about everything you arenít selective it shows. You have virtually jerked a knot in my ass a couple times a few months ago. Talked to me just like a teacher would . I appreciate you being YOU !!... this to shall pass !.. now stay focused and find a Damn mountain to climb. You at a rock wall, u donít have to climb it.. just walk around it !!... and keep climbing that mountain. YOU ARE TO FOCUSED to be anything but an inspiration!!.... and I expect to keep reading your motivating post. You make it real, you still teaching !! I havenít graduated yet and I learn and take a lot from your post.. Iím not gonna bite or throw shoes or be an unruly (need their ass kicked ) students.. but Iím not leaving either you got more to shareand thatís what teachers do they share their knowledge and I need yours !!!!!.... so keep spreading your lesson plans to the ones of us that are still here in class.

    Sraebaer,
    Thank you for sharing such an honest and heartfelt post. I'm sorry that you're struggling, but thankful that you did catch it in time and are doing proactive things to help. You've always seemed like such a strong and logical person, I know that admitting the problem is half the battle and you definitely have the strength to overcome. You were successful when you struggled with gaining weight and went to Weight Watchers. You are a strong and brave woman. You can do this.

    I used to drink quite a bit in my 30's and 40's and one day I did something similar....made a complete idiot out of myself on a girls vacation. I was so mortified oh it was awful. I decided then to stop. Cold turkey. People were shocked that I no longer drank them under the table, but I was just grateful to keep a clear head and to avoid the terrible hangovers that I used to get. I'd be in bed seriously for 3 days. No fun.

    Best of luck to you!

    I am glad you are dealing with the addiction. I am thankful that so far I have not had any transfer addictions. (At least none that I have noticed.) I also have a friend who had bypass many years ago and she had a serious drinking problem. She is currently in rehab and will come out on the 28th. I know a lot of hers is also addiction transfer. She has struggled with alcoholism for years. Hopefully this time the rehab will stick. Please continue to be strong and control your urges. I think that if you were even having a nightly drink it wasn't an issue but you said the key word...you were "secretly" filling it up over and over. Big hugs Sharon!
