I am an alcoholic, 4 months sober. I was prescribed (and took) vicodin for a fractured foot. I’m pregnant and my options are limited as far as what I can take.
Anyway it’s done now and I took as prescribed but I’m amazed at how ‘blah’ I feel after it. Just like I did when I was drinking. Kind of apathetic? Or.. like dissatisfied with life where as I had been very happy and content.
However I did spend about an hour this morning tracking santa with my 4 year old (norad) and plan to go buy my kids some pj’s for tonight while my sister and husband enjoy some holiday drinks today. So I feel like I’m doing all the right things, just mentally a little set back from the painkillers (which I don’t need anymore, thankfully).
