I woke up depressed and feeling very sad this morning.
I can't think of a cause for it right now, but I'm trusting that it's a temporary slump.
I had a pretty depressed/lethargic week.
Sort of tried to meditate a bit and not get too down
Came up with some new life style insights and now feeling much better.

Thank you for that! Grateful to be going to bed sober tonight.
Choosing sobriety in the face of contention, struggle or adversity is a true victory, Casey.

Congratulations.

Casey, I'm sorry you had a bad experience, but great job staying the course. You'll be stronger for it when the next inevitable bump comes your way.

And thanks for what you do here. I've been intrigued myself at how much my interaction here adds to my resolve when I'm having a rough go.

Congratulations to Amp123, Upwardspiral and me on reaching new milestones today! To celebrate our spectacular achievements, today we have a pumpkin cake with chocolate ganache and salted caramel cream cheese frosting! Keep up the great work!

Ah yes......I had a nice long run today. So I'll take a rather large piece of that and of course a tall frosty glass of milk!

I'll add that my commitment to this thread always helps. Just knowing I committed 24 hours here always gives me the strength to continue no matter what I am facing.

Casey-thank you for all that you do. I really appreciate you being here and hope it gets easier for you soon.
