So there are a lot of people that come to my blog and not many that comment. And that's totally fine, this ain't no guilt trip to get you to comment.
For while the comments I do get are really lovely, (some have made me cry with their kindness, or get a little teary at least, some have really helped me be strong when I was in a rough patch, and some have made me laugh out loud) really this blog is mainly written for me to help keep myself sober.
It actually came about because when I finally decided I was going to take the plunge and attempt to completely remove alcohol from my life I thought about getting a diary to put in my top bedside drawer so I could write every day and keep track of my thoughts and boost myself along. Then I thought why not type it down somewhere, then thought open a blog, do it anonymously and .. well here we are.
But for all of you that do arrive here and then leave without commenting I can only guess at what you're thinking. So I'm going to take a stab at what your thoughts might be and put you into three categories.
Reader Type-A is thinking: "Man that Mrs D, wow she's amazing to be removing alcohol from her life. How cool and strong is she! And she seems really down to earth, such brutal honesty. I've been wondering about my own alcohol intake .. I'm going to have to keep coming back to see how she's getting on."
Reader Type-B is thinking: "Jeez, what a lush Mrs D is. Can't believe she was such a boozer, all that wine drinking, what loser behaviour. Only dicks can't control their alcohol. I bet she's going to relapse. I'll pop back every now and then just to see her fail."
Reader Type-C is thinking: "What the hell is this? I'm looking for the blog of the uber-cool New York DJ Mrs D. This ain't the right Mrs D! *navigates away*"
Ha! No but seriously, I've decided to put up a pic of myself as soon as I can get it scanned (it's old, but very appropriate). So whether you're Reader A or B watch this space and you'll get to see what I look like. If you're a Type-C and you've made it this far - what the hell are you still doing here??!!
Love, Mrs D xxx
