I dunno about hopeful Hevyn. Just a shorter word for expectation.

But I do recall you were one of the 1st to respond many years back when I first came here. It took me years to get sober. Years. But I am doing it. you r story was one that I felt, "If she can do it maybe I can".

I mean some never live to see the day. My days are not what I would call pleasant. But still I persevere.

My dear sweet Sleepie....I am so proud of you! You tackled not one, but two monsters like a superhero and knocked them to Kalamazoo!!
You are a strong, brave, and caring person, and you mean SO much to all of us here.
Keep up the good work, and we'll be celebrating your 1 year anniversary before you know it!

You want to hear it, don't you. The truth.


Now if the autocarrot takes off the caps, I want them replaced.


And they still walk the halls here.

Congratulations sleepie -- you've worked on it every day, I know. I'm glad you've had a good day

I hope that the good feelings come more and more often for you. I know you won't hope it for yourself. When I had 6 months, I hadn't any hope, either. It wasn't until my 1 year anniversary that I considered the possibility.

So I hope that sometime over the next six months, you have more good times, more often, and sometimes give cautious hope a try.

Well had a small dinner and tomorrow I am attempting a whole foods diet *shudder* this is not gonna go well.

I say thing not because I dislike whole foods, it is just that food or comfort food is my last thing to afford me any relief form anxieties at all. I always get this existential dread and anxiety when I diet, I never feel good I never feel satisfied. Food is a great pleasure of life, as an artist I really appreciate this being taken as an art form! I have friends in the culinary world and it could be described as nothing less.... and in my town, well we aren't slackers for good things to eat around here.

Good job sleepie, I am truly proud of you.
Stuck in relapse mode myself. I can't seem to find a soft place to fall, ever. I know it takes time and work. For now I'm just rejoicing off the good works my friends on SR are accomplishing. Keep it up sweet stuff.

There is no soft place.

You have to be tougher, bigger and angrier than it.

I'm always interested in diets Sleepie... Is a whole foods diet for weight loss or just a healthier way of eating? I know I need to do something about my weight, but I sure do love to eat and hate to feel deprived..

Here is what 6 months looks like in the form of Legos, one per day. I guess it was something to do. I added a piece each day.
