Cococo good to hear from you and totally understand the self preservation mode also.

OK...here's some levity for the thread for a moment...

My daughter is 9 (almost 10) and we have been watching Fuller House on Netflix. Oh my head...we are laughing so much together watching this show!

It is such a WONDERFUL feeling to be laughing so genuinely...from deep down inside and fully present with her!

Hey there Cococo I'm doing well the test results came back benign and I have been counting my blessings thank you. I'm on Day 9 now, low energy still but I know that will change so in the meantime I'm just trying to make sure I get nutrients I need and eat properly... not expecting to feel fine after only 9 days off the booze but for today sober and OK is good enough for me. How are you doing? What's going on with you?

Oh that's a relief. It's very stressful waiting for results aye.

I'm better thanks.

Ive got a major problem with my plumbing. Oh and no, I don't mean my water works HAHA. My sewer pipe burst. And what's worse it's not an underground pipe. It's suspended in mid air under my house. So raw effluent went EVERYWHERE. Charming. I hope youre not eating right now!

Anyway, it is what it is......I just have to get it replaced. It's going to cost me an arm and a leg. Ive just got to decide whether I should give up the left or right side. What do you think?

Why? NO, don't go! I really value your input. I've been a bit laissez-faire at the March group, because I feel more connected here, with the Febs. Plus, I really like cats [much as I also like birds!]. You simply cannot leave us. XO GG

Im just in desperate self preservation mode and trying to solely focus on getting and staying out of bed at the moment, and staying sober. I miss you all. I will be back when I clip my wings back on.

I very much look forward to your return, Cococo. To be honest [well, at least personally speaking], I doubt we are doing as well as it seems. You are an optimistic presence amongst us Febs, and we miss you. I totally understand the need for a time out, but you'd better be back. XO GG

get well soon Optimist!
how are you doing Karen?
Congrats Sadie, Cute Auggie and anyone else hitting a milestone today

360I'd be annoyed too - but people are going to believe what they want.

I hope your husband doesn't follow through with his 'one or two' plan but there's no reason to let that upset your recovery if it does.

I actually believe you can stay sober even if your loved ones don't stop (no disrespect intended Ddee)

I think you've done a good thing moving to the March class Coco and I absolutely understand self preservation. I think it's pretty clear you'll always be welcome here though

I hope you were joking too knb but just in case anyone else feels overlooked...

This is currently the busiest class in the place - there's usually 6 or 7 pages waiting for me to read. It's easy to miss names, or even whole posts, by accident.

I am sure no disrespect was intended

Have a good day/night everyone

EXACTLY. This group is a busy bunch!!

Just got back from my private recovery counseling. Turns out that my docs have been chatting about me amongst themselves [no surprise], and I got a message that my specialist is sorry about what I'm going through, and is looking forward to better helping me on Monday.

Well, they all know now! No more use hiding it.

Awww that's very kind but threads do naturally quieten down a bit when the class graduates.

I know exactly what you mean. I feel very attached to this group. I think about all of you regularly when I'm just going about by daily thing.

I've just been invited to my friend's birthday do, she warned me that there'll be drinking and my ex will be there! She said I could come out for the meal with her family instead but I feel like I would be intruding, I don't want her to feel like she HAS to invite me to that. I'm pretty confident that I could go out and not drink any alcohol, it's just the seeing my ex bit that throws me. I also don't get to see this friend very often, and she's one of my best friends, so completely declining would be a difficult option too. Not sure what to do!

GG - It's a good thing that you'll be getting more support, and you won't have to be hiding anything from them anymore! What a relief that'll be!

Hey GG. It's illegal for your counselor to share your information with your specialist unless you have given permission to do so in writing. Unless they work for the same agency.

Dee - She lives in a completely different city, and she's only down for the weekend and has plans for both days. So the decision is the drinking and my ex, the awkward family meal, or completely giving it a miss.

THANK YOU, Auggie. I'm clearly not very aware of my legal rights -- just trying to get better! They don't work for the same agency. My shrink is also not part of the same agency as the rest of my doctors.
