As part of my coverage of addiction issues on this blog, I'd like to point you toward this MSNBC piece written by a female alcoholic who writes:
"I was in Amsterdam, unpacking my clothes in my hotel room, and I could actually feel my liver underneath my rib cage. Feel it from within, and actually feel it with my fingers through my skin. I had been noticing my urine color change for several weeks by this point, but I just kept making excuses for it. It's not really tea-colored ... I lay on the bed, feeling below my ribs with my fingers, saying over and over again in my head, "Oh God, please don't let my liver be enlarged. Please let me be OK. Please don't let me have done this to myself."
She talks about her journey toward recovery and how others helped her find a new life without alcohol.
