I guess I'm just paranoid. I've decided to take a lengthy hiatus from any drinking at all, just in case.
Allow any damage, if there is any, to repair itself.
ocassionally, and by that I mean like a total of 3 times in the past 4 years I'll get this sharp pain on my right side....sort of like a muscle tear, and it hurts to breathe in deeply and stretch for about 10 min...then it goes away completely and I'm fine.
Other than fatigue, which I attribute to depression, I show no signs of any liver damage yet...as far as dark urine or odd stools or yellow skin or any of that stuff.
I suppose I'm just paranoid.
