Just checked in here and read everything - Congrats DG on 2 years!

There follows, what I have learned - condensed into two lines:

---
Joy: "A juice for me" - The best o' calls.

Woe: Poor doggy's missing testicles.
---

I can improve ( I know I can )

I'd love to go 6 weeks back change my life get back on track
I had such peace serenity it defined the love I had in me
For just one slip I've screwed it all I thought that I would have a ball
That's so not true I its just a farce a total pain right in my arse

Why did I cave why did I fall I thought ok I've got it all
Don't be fooled just be astute don't head into disrepute
I'm going to lose, my girls again this loving caring mother hen
Why do I fail why do I fall I'm the Mum who wants it all

I want my family loving me but sadly so it's not to be
It my own doing I sabotage hiding behind my camouflage
I have no one else to blame my poor excuses are all lame
I'm the only one who can fix me oh please oh please just let it be .

I'll say just one more drink ok now let me think 'oh god' no way
This happened just 2 years ago what the hell no no no
There is no coming back from this no happy after total bliss
It's depression sadness anxiety all of that which looms in me .

Fradely- let me offer you a late welcome to the limerick thread. Don't worry- we don't judge here. The poems don't have to be limericks and they don't even have to rhyme. Heck, it doesn't even have to be a poem.

Snoozy- love you. A relapse can start overnight, but remember so can recovery. Stay close.

Thanks DG . I'm in a much better mindset today. I put the drink down rather than feeling sorry for myself. Hopefully onwards and upwards ...again

Much love xx

Snoozy, I love you! I hope things go well for you. I'm not much of a pray-er, but I will pray for you

so glad to see some action here
your sorrows, triumphs, tea and (oops) beer
today is just another day
we can live anew or the old way
or back and forth if so be it
the key is first to give a ****

Dear Snoozy in such great pain
I know your depression and forth and back
It's hard to look this disease in the face
And say "You'll not win, I've got myself again."

Reaching out will do yourself a favor
Saving Snoozy is so worth it
This illness can never be recovered
But the one-days-at-a-time can well be savored.

Your girls will love you anyway
No matter how sad and mad they be
They know your true heart, a dear
They know you suffer in the day to day.

Snoozy take the easy way
Let us know how you are today
For we will love you back to you
Because loving you is what we do!
Stick with the winners and win with the stickers, Dear Snoozy.

P.S. I like the thread 24 Hour Connections too!

Been on a two-week business trip
Now I seem to have gotten sick
What I would give right now just to be home
Rather than sick in a hotel room all alone
Or better yet, to be with my boyfriend
Then when thirsty, for water I could send him
Perhaps he could bring me a blanket and the remote
All night and day on me he could dote

Thanks Gilmer.

I must admit I'm having a 'poor me' sort of day
Sometimes it feels like nothing goes my way
I've really worked hard to get where I am
But sometimes I think, "This is it? Damn"
I want to share my feelings, but how do I find the words to say?

When I'm already feeling way too vulnerable
How do I make exposing more feel comfortable?
I admit to feeling in kind of a dark place
Why is it so hard to control what goes on in my head space?
Sometimes I feel like I'm just not lovable

I've tried so hard to do everything right
Of course, most days I feel better than tonight
It's so easy to feel bad and complain
But does it really compare to the past pain?
Is there some way my thoughts I could rewrite?

Is there some reason why I have to rely
On getting my self-esteem from some guy?
Why are these thoughts so very entrenched
I could blame it on him, but that would be pretense
It's something in me, to claim otherwise would be to lie

I found myself in this exact same spot with the last one
I thought, "If I get a new guy, these feelings will be done"
But here I am feeling just the same
I'm starting to think I'm the one to blame
I want to fix this, rather than to just run

If I may be so bold, my friend DG:
It's not about him you see.
No man can give you self-esteem,
Nor can he take it away.
Your self worth is yours and yours alone,
(But if he's an ass you're better off alone.)
Don't rely on some guy or wait by the phone.
It is only by consent that we allow others to dictate
Our thoughts of self-love or our thoughts of self-hate.
It is something in you and you admit that's the case,
The heart that's been wounded you cannot replace.
But you can heal it, and I think you know how,
Breathe into your heart and embrace what is now.
The past is past and the future not yet here,
So gaze into your heart and let go of fear.
Self-esteem or self-worth is only in thought,
You are what you is and you is what you ought.
You're as precious as you were as a newborn babe,
Wide-eyed and soft, not yet deceived or betrayed.
Be your own loving mother, no harsh words and no scorn,
The world gained a miracle the day you were born.

I suppose it's relevant to most any woman, and guys for that matter.

I was belittle, berated, groped, and beaten 'til I thought I deserved it. Then one night I dropped acid and hiked into the hills. While sitting on a boulder, looking over the lights of the city I thought to myself, you know what? I'm not like those people, and I'm gonna rise above this. **** 'em is what I say!

Then I got drunk for about three decades.

i was belittled, berated and beaten and groped
running with scissors so angry and doped
but it was all that i knew
and i loved my perps, too
but it wasn't the life for which i had hoped

i caught my new boss in another lie today
i didn't really know if or what i should say
so i followed my gut
and kept my mouth shut
as much as i can i will keep him at bay
