Sorry for the late commitment, i'll try and make an earlier one tomorrow. (I fall into this trap with my sponsor too...Where i call him, later and later each day.

I'll be here EARLY tomorrow!

24 more for me please. I don't think I've ever felt so low as I do right now. It's a horrible place to be trapped in depression and unable to see a way out. My doctor asked if I felt suicidal or felt like hurting myself, and the answer to that has always been a straight no because I couldn't be so selfish as to put my children and family through the experience of that. So I keep on keeping on, knowing I'm not doing the best but I could be a whole lot worse.

night night all x

Was "one of those days" ugh....yesterday was too.

Speaking of yesterday, I told myself, I am not going to drink over it! I came home pretty beat mentally and decided to call a friend, do yoga, write in my journal and take a nice long bath....instead of drinking. I laid in bed a couple hours later sound asleep...this AM on the way to work I remembered why I went home from work upset and I suddenly recalled I did not lose a wink of sleep over it that night and that I had forgotten about it since after my writing and yoga session etc and through this AM. I would call that healing...growing. Learning to deal with my emotions over choosing to drink and ignore them. I worked through that emotion and came out fine and most importantly sober. I made the choice not to exaggerate the problem by drinking. If I would have chose to drink over it I would have been up all night pissed tossing and turning and then woke up today still fuming...and hungover. Growth. I am proud of me That is that moment between when a craving hits and the choice or not to drink makes good recovery Driving to work I realized all this and it made me happy

I think today is just typical day 5 I hate the world depression but I learned from yesterday this too shall pass. It will. I will just keep facing each emotion and day sober and continue to grow!!!!

Anyway, I hope you all have great days or nights wherever you are.

May have already posted this one.....but hey why not....here it is again!
FOR KING & COUNTRY LYRICS

"It's Not Over Yet"

They are inside your head
You got a voice that says
You won't get past this one
You won't win your freedom

It's like a constant war
And you want to settle that score
But you're bruised and beaten
And you feel defeated

This goes out to the heaviest heart

[Chorus:]
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et

Keep on fighting
Out of the dark
Into the light
It's not over
Hope is rising
Never give in
Never give up
It's not over

Yea-et-et, woah
Yea-et-et, woah

Oh, game set match
It's time to put it in your past, oh
Feel the winter leavin'
It's redemption season
Long live the young at heart (Here we are)
Cheers to a brand new start (Here we are)
We're revived and breathing
To live a life of freedom

[Chorus:]
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et

Life is a race we run
So run till the race is won
Don't you ever give up (Here we are)
Oh no never give up (Here we are)
Life is a race we run
So run till the race is won
Don't you ever give up (Here we are)
We will never give up (Here we are)

[Chorus:]
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et

Keep on fighting
Out of the dark
Into the light
It's not over
Hope is rising
Never give in
Never give up
It's not over

Everyone who is feeling depressed..I totally get it. It seems to be in the air here and in my real life surroundings. Please hang in there. I am right where you are. A lot of people are!!! I am grateful to have a good day cause they are far and few between. But we still have life and a lot of hope!!!! We have to keep fighting!!!!!! We have got to keep the faith that the best days of our life are right around the corner. We just have to keep going to find it!!!! Hugs to you all.
