Angie you sound really cheerful! Enjoying your work helps keep the mood up, as does planning fun things, such as Halloween.

What are you doing this weekend? It's been a busy week. I have some free time tonight, then Saturday and Sunday I'm going to be taking the boys back and forth to sports.

That sounds like fun, Glee!! I'm going to spend tomorrow cleaning and organizing since I won't have Alex and Sunday I will have Alex so I'm happy about that. . I think we might go to a movie but I have to see what is out for kids. It has been a while since we went to a movie.

Feeling more like myself than I have in months. Feeling hopeful. It's a great feeling.

I've got a bit of a headache and just feel tired. Will be glad when fall weather comes in. I made Alex cinnamon rolls this morning and he's playing his club penguin game on the computer. I took some Tylenol so maybe headache will go away soon. The heat zaps so much energy and this cooling system isn't the greatest but at least it's something. High will be 102. Housework was done yesterday so we are going to have a lazy day and enjoy our Sunday. Staying hydrated and have fans and ac going full blast. Thank God, I'm not drinking because of so many reasons plus it dehydrates too.

I remember feeling pretty amazed when I started feeling like myself again. It's that saying in AA "keep coming until the miracle happens." It just keeps getting better from here, too. I'm so happy for you.

I hope your headache lets up. Stay cool!!

I hope you have stopped Angie. If not, please pour it out and start drinking some water.

My phone died and I fell asleep for a bit. Something tells me that little bit of sleep will be my last for tonight. I woke up about 20 minutes ago and I'm sipping another glass of water. I am so ashamed. I feel like I'm a lost cause. I had been depressed but then I was feeling better. I had a couple months sober, depressed for most of it but I was sober. Thank you all so much. I appreciate soberpotamus talking to me through this and your amazing support.

I don't think you're a lost cause at all...

but I do think you need a better plan for those times when you're alone, or when your ex is trying to get at you, Angie.

In the end, success stories come from successful plans.

Thank you, Dee. I appreciate all of your great advice. I do need a better system but I don't know how to do it without trusting someone because I think I might need people in my life and I'm kinda awkward in person. I mean well but I'm shy.

You may need to step out of your comfort zone to get the support you need. Better to feel a little awkward than drink.

I am awkward too, Angie. It's ok, really.

Opening up is probably the best thing. Allow others to help. Get things out there.

We care.
