I haven't been able to drink much, due to surgery 7 weeks ago. Now, I have cut waaaay back on my pain meds and don't take any on a day that I plan on indulging in a glass of wine or two. I'm up and walking about pretty good now, even though I have to rest several times a day.
I've discovered that I start feeling a little fuzzy after about 1/4 of a glass and really feel it at the 1/2 glass mark. Certainly by the 3/4 glass mark I ask my husband to pour out the balance of whatever is in my glass. I've learned to pour much smaller glasses.
If I was 21, I'd relish the cheap buzz, but at my (ahem) more mature age, I find it disconcerting.
Do you think this is due to the residual pain meds in my system, the fact that I haven't been drinking since the surgery, or that I'm just not as mobile as I was before the surgery, therefore not burning it off as quickly?
p.s. I'm at the 1/2 glass point now and you have no idea how many times I've had to retype this.
