Whiners Anonymous ... Part 257 ~ "Whiny Dog Days Of Summer"


New Thread Continues From Here

https://www.soberrecovery.com/forums...ml#post7228129 (Whiners Anonymous ... Part 256 ~ "Summertime Whines")

Thank you for the new title, Suki!





W.A. Preamble!

Whiners Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience,

strength and hope with each other,

that they may solve their whining problems and help others to recover from whinerism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop whineing.

There are no dues or fees for W.A. membership;

we are self-supporting through our own contributed whines.

W.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, institutions,

TV, radio, or Oprah Book of the Month Club!

does not wish to engage in any controversy, yeah right!,

neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

Our primary purpose is to stop whine'n and help other whineaholics to achieve non whineity.

Whiners Anonymous Help (WAH!)

Do you whine, complain, or snivel? Are you a grumpy old fart?
Do you seek out others in taverns or internet chat rooms to whine about things?
Do people ever tell you to "like it or lump it"?
Are you asked, "What are you crying about?"
Do friends or family seem less likely to talk to you as the years go by?
Do you constantly tell other people they whine too much?

If you do any of these things, you may be in need of the WAH! 12 step program.
Whining is for tiny tots! Do you want to die a lonely old man/woman and whine about the prospect?
Stop whining now!


The WAH! 12 Step Program:


1. Admit you whine.

Just say, "I am a whiner."


2. Admit your whining is a problem.

It's not enough to know you whine--you have to realize it interferes with your life. Tell yourself, your spouse, and a friend that you have a problem with whining, that all you have ever done is whine. But don't whine to God! He already knows, all too well. God just sat back while you whined away the years. It's not His fault, after all, so don't go whining to Him with your problem.


3. Seek help to cure your whining.

Whining is but one of your many shortcomings, since you are a miserable excuse for a human being. Another shortcoming is you can't do anything for yourself, otherwise you would not whine. Go whine to somebody to help you--that's all you know how to do, remember?


4. Laugh at your whine.

Made a decision to turn your constant whining over to your sense of humor and learn to "lovingly and wholeheartedly" laugh at yourself each time you whine. Be prepared to be given the nickname "Loony Tunes," however.


5. Step out of your shoes.

Put your whine in perspective. There's a woman in Africa living in a mud hut with a grass roof and NO indoor plumbing. She lives off of $27 a year. She is totally blind and collects sticks for firewood, hoping the next stick isn't a snake. Now, what was your whine again?


6. Eat something nasty.

Eat some vegetable you hate without whining about the taste. And don't hold your nose or cover it with cheese!


7. Listen to other whiners.

Get a part job in a complaint department and listen to other peoples' whines 8 hours a day. But don't complain about your job! If you do, go back to step 3. Go a whole week listening to your wife/husband complain and just say "yes dear." If you can't, go back to step 2. Have kids and listen to them whine--that's how you sound to others. Pay back time! What goes around, comes around!


8. Make a victim list.

Make of list of all persons you thought you had harmed and hope to hell that they'd forgotten all the minuscule crap you'd blown out of proportion. Ask them if you ever whined, and then be prepared to take the return whine.


9. Beat the crap out of your parents.

After all, they raised a whiner. Yes, you started early, but it is not your fault!


10. Beware of falling off the wagon.

Resign yourself to the fact you are going to whine each time you try to stick to your guns when you know you are right. Once a whiner, always a whiner, they say. So either just admit your are wrong or go back to step 1. Cripes, you mean you really want to go back to step 1 after getting to step 10?


11. Whine to your dog.

They love you no matter how much you whine. It's called unconditional love. Unless of course they sense your foul mood. Disguise your whine by mixing the words "good dog" in every sentence. They only know so many words--those two they know. Otherwise, your dog would hate you like all the people you know.


12. Help others.

Help some other whiney-assed basstard with his whine problem. You get to whine about their whining. It's great.

so have at it!

whine, snivle, rant, bitch, and rave away!!!

W.A. Disclaimer; just be prepared for the results


12 Promises of WA

If we are painstaking about developing our whining techniques, we will be amazed at how proficient we become at expressing our dissatisfaction with people, places, and things that irk us.

1. We are going to know a new freedom of expression.

2. We will realize it's phony to pretend happiness when we just aren't feeling it.

3. We will not regret our whines nor wish to deny their validity.

4. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know the peace of unburdening ourselves by sharing our whines at WA.

5. No matter how far down in the dumps we feel, we will see how our experience can benefit our fellow whiners.

6. That Pollyanna feeling of "la-dee-da, la-dee-da" will disappear.

7. We will set our own whines aside as we realize someone else's whine may be more deserving of our emotional support .

8. Self-centeredness will not be as prevalent, as we share and compare whining.

9. Our whole attitude and outlook upon ordinary blahs in general, and whining in particular will take on a new meaning.

10. Fear of being recognized and/or ostracized as a Chronic Whiner will leave us.

11. We will intuitively know that healthy whining is not to be stifled, but shared with others like ourselves.

12. We will suddenly realize that sharing a good whine can be very cathartic and we no longer need to whine alone.

Are these unreasonable promises? We think not. Whining has become our way of dealing with adversities--sometimes major, sometimes petty--and knowing our whines will not go unnoticed will work towards reducing the tensions produced by life's little speedbumps.

The Twelve Traditions of Whiner's Anonymous

1. Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon W.A. unity.

2. For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority—the owners, Administrators and Moderators, Greeters and Members of this site as they may express themselves in our group conscience.

3. Our leaders are but trusted servants;but they do govern. The only requirement for W.A. membership is SR membership and a desire to share some whiny ESH.

4. This group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other whiners or W.A.as a whole.

5. Each group has but one primary purpose—to whine about things in a safe environment, have fun, blow off steam and then let it go while moving onward in recovery.

6. A W.A. group ought never endorse, finance, or lend the W.A. name to any related facility or outside enterprise,lest those who do not wish to whine or read other people's whines divert us from our primary purpose.

7. Every W.A. group ought to not to be fully self-supporting, and gratefully accept this venue given to us for the purpose of whining.

8. Whiner's Anonymous should remain forever non-professional, but our all of our whiners shall remain as special workers.

9. W.A., as such, ought never be organized; because they need to whine about the ups and downs of their lives.

10. Whiner's Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; because most people on the outside ignore whiners anyway.

11. Our public relations policy is based on whining rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of real life if that is what we choose.

12. Anonymity of screen names is optional for those who choose to use real names ever reminding us to place principles before personalities, and respect those from other fellowships. What we whine about here stays forever on the internet.

Thanks for the new part Opi. Do you know why the 'photobucket' logo is on the beach and cat pictures? It's never been there before.

Took Billie out and she peed in the rain. Not raining too much, just lightly. Still enough to get wet standing there. It's lightning and thundering too.

Thanks for the title Suki!

I noticed the same thing, Least.

I went back a few months and couldn't find a picture without the logo.

Not sure what's going on. Sorry, folks.

Oh it's nothing to be sorry for, I just thought it was strange and hadn't noticed it before til just now.

Billie was sleeping on the rug and suddenly got up so I took that as a sign that she wanted to go out. Took her out and it's not raining anymore. Encouraged her and she pooped.

Still scratching and I gave her some benadryl, which helps a bit. I asked the vet office which vet I'd be seeing and it's my favorite of the three. I like all of them, but the one we'll be seeing is my fave.

I am trying to think of anything I did or gave Billie that was different and might be causing the scratching. The only two things there were different were giving her a dose of the Revolution, and getting a new bag of wheat germ for her dinners. Other than those two things, nothing has changed.

We are having a T storm. Rain, lightning, and thunder. As soon as it started thundering, Billie came to get her thunder chew. I hope Jack isn't afraid of thunder in heaven.

Opi thank you for the new thread!

Least I don’t think you need to worry about Jack, he’ll be above the thunderclaps. hope Billie is ok with the thunder. Talking about the allergies, could it be the new wheat germ?

Hev, I’ve been meaning to ask you, is that a different photo in your avatar? Same doggie but looking a different way, unless I’m going completely gaga.

Oh Pondy at last, your pool being fitted. Yaaay!

I’m tempted to treat Mr.M and myself to some MyPillow’s. Like you Ann, I like the fact you can wash them. When I wash my pillows they go down hill very quickly, lose their shape and aren’t much good for nothing and usually end up buying more pillows!

Mr. M’s day yesterday at the hospital went off fine, when they eventually managed to get the cannula in his arm! They had six attempts before they got in his vein. They said it’s because his veins went a weird way. Last time they said he had thick skin and couldn’t find a vein!

We’re not sure if there’s any more tests before his next appointment is due. We’ll just wait and see. No news is good news as they say!

Oh gosh I had a whine this morning. It was when it was still dark around 3.30am. I’d gone to look out the door see what the world was like and nearly out my head in a spider and her web! I brushed her aside hoping she’d build her web elsewhere and not in my door entrance!

Lots of love to all. xx

I certainly don't like the feel of running into a spider web, and have no fondness for spiders, but do like the creative designing of the webs they make. The fact that the silk that makes up the web can be different kinds of silk, like some of it is sticky to catch insects. I don't like spiders but their webs are wonders of design.

I notice Billie has spells of bad scratching, and other times when she isn't scratching. Will be good to have the vet do a skin scraping to see if there's infection. She has scratched off the hair on her upper 'lip'. It looks different cause I know there used to be hair there.

Sorry for all Mr Mags' poking he had to endure at the hospital. It's no fun when they can't get a vein to draw from. I used to donate blood but the last few times I tried to donate, I was rejected due to my low BP. After three rejections, I stopped trying to donate. I used to donate regularly.

Well, time for bed. Snuggling with Billie is a favorite thing to do. I fall asleep feeling peaceful with her up against me.

I'm not going to give her the wheat germ in her breakfast and see if that stops the itching/scratching. Her Revolution dose was her regular monthly dose so can't see where it caused an allergic reaction. It just happened right about when she started itching.

sigh... it would be so easy if she could speak English or I could speak Dog. No more guess work, just ask them where it hurts.

I had a terrible night, aches, pains and felt sick. No fever, so that's good news but I am going to take a completely restful day. My (once estranged) brother and his wife are supposed to come for a visit tomorrow and Friday but I am going to change the dates.

Back later when I feel better.

Good afternoon Whiners.

Thank you for the new thread Opi, the preamble never fails to raise a laugh.

Pondlady, I'm so glad your pond is in process, you've been waiting a long time. I hope everything goes well for you.

I wonder what's going on with your neighbours Least? It's all very intriguing.
I'm glad Billie did what she needed to and I hope you get that itching sorted, it must be driving her mad. I heard they don't have storms up in heaven, Jack will be happy so don't be worrying about him.

Mags I bet Mr Mags was glad to get back home last night, it must have been a long day for both of you, his arms must be black and blue this morning. Those spiders webs do feel horrible if they touch you, they remind me of the ghost train at the fair.

Oh no Ann, feel better soon. Stay in bed and rest, rest, rest, we'll still all be here tomorrow. It's a good idea to change the date of your visit from your brother and his wife, they will understand. Please take good care of yourself.

Back later. xx

So much love dear Ann. s
I hope you feel better today.
Maybe cheesecake would help? xxxxx



And I would do the same dear least.....take the wheat-germ out and see if it makes a difference. s

Sorry about the pool drama dear Kim....hope it gets sorted out fast. s

And cranky as here....I made my elbow worse yesterday......where is my bubble wrap.

Thank you, Suze! I knew you would find one.

Ann, so sorry you're feeling poorly and had to reschedule your visit. Please know you are always in my thoughts and prayers. Hope a good rest has you feeling better.

Mags, what a shame your poor hubby had to go through such torture. They can never find my veins either and poke me numerous times. Now, I allow one stick, after that, I insist someone else be brought in. Works much better than sitting there in tears with black and blue marks up and down my arms.

Wondering how Hev made out with her "my pillow". I tossed and turned all night with my old pillow. Fluffing and refluffing the darn thing.

Pouring rain, hot and humid today. No yard work ... guess it's the grocery store. ugh

Have a wonderful day, everyone.

Pouring rain here too.

I didn't give her the wheat germ this morning and we'll see if that makes a difference.

Thanks for the new thread, Opi! You're the best!!

I think it's the medication that is throwing me off again, dang stuff is hard to endure. I get a CT scan next week to see how it's working and if it's not doing well, I may consider a different drug and plan. If it IS doing well, I will endure and do the best I can with it. They can still knock it down another 100 mg, but I am trying to stick with the big cannons if I can.

I am taking a complete day of rest and naps to make up for the sleep I didn't get last night. Enough about me and my whines.

Mags, I am glad Mr. M is home again. And YIKES to walking into a spider web. I am lucky we don't have many spiders here. In the north we had huge meaty things that could hop several feet, I think they were called dock spiders and they were absolutely horrid.

Least, it's pouring rain here too and supposed to rain off and on all day. Hope you get to the bottom of Billie's itch.

Venus, thanks for the cheesecake, that's the cure for anything that ails ya.

Pondy, hope the pool is almost ready for a nice dip.

A little gratitude goes a long way.

So far this morning, no scratching. I will get some new wheat germ and try it to see if I'd gotten a bad batch before.

Least, that’s good news! Fingers crossed you found the cause.

Ann, what an adorable little girl and yes I agree, being grateful for the little things is a big thing. Sorry the meds are messing with your equilibrium.

Opi, I feel for you too and I’m glad you put them right but there was more than one nurse trying to put in the cannula. He’s got some lovely bruises today and it takes a lot to bruise Mr.M.

It’s been heavy air here today and I have a feeling it’s going to rain and thunder and lightening. The wind is getting up, I’m ready for the sky display. Hopefully it will clear this oppressive air.

Love to everyone, I’m having an early night with the curtains open for the impending storm. xx
