Pelagic- good about dumping the moonshine. There are many reasons and rationalisations for doing stuff in this world. All I know - for me is if I drink..I die.
To remove a tempation like booze- by not having it in my space, or going to pubs for lunch- or hanging around people who have to drink..gives me more control.
PeaceR- no one has ever thought I was a girl b4. Perhaps I am getting in touch with my feminine side.
What 'bogun' names would we all have? You know the disenfranchised millenials who name their kids with weird names - or weirdly spelled common names? So Leah- becomes Lee-yah. Hollywood kid's names. I think I would like to be a strong old testament name- Zack, Zeke, Jebediah....
Bogun name would be something like Snake, Jozza (John)

The thing about the burns review is discussions of amputating this, hacking meat flaps off that part of me, grafting, the carnage of the injuries, even- 'well John- this is it- you will not get better than this, now', said as if we are talking about the weather. To THEM - my stuff is just a brief, self congrat's blip on their day. To ME- my stuff is me. I get the distinct impression at times it is the challenge, the status and technical side which is important. The clinical challenge- not me per se. Oh well- the arrogant sod did save my life...so I can cope...just puts me off kilter for a few days.

He did his job. Thankfully, he did it well. Sounds like an a-hole to me. Glad that you have therapists for the real stuff.

I don't know what Bogun is. Let me look it up and I'll get back to you.

I see BBG as a Paul

I agree with Kevin for MITA

I see Apple as a Kathryn and Ladybug as a Jennifer.

I donít have a hippy name but funny you did name one of my sisters.

I thought Dee was a girl for about a year 😮😂

Congrats on your new granddaughter, Bobbie! I bet she smells heavenly!

Congrats on 100 Pelagic! That's an awesome achievement

Hugs, PhoenixJ

The weather has been nice so I've been doing a lot of walking and I am sore haha! Dinners in the oven and my son and I are watching A Nightmare before Christmas. Is this a Halloween movie or Christmas movie?

Take care everyone! Great to see you all! Sober is better!

Getting ready to head out. Spending the night at my son’s to take care of Olivia so mom and dad can sleep. This would have never happened if I were still drinking. Feeling very grateful.

Kevin? Are you freakin' kidding me?? Haha, JK - If anyone here is a Kevin, I think it's a fine name

I am having a tough time today - my better half has been doing the day drinking thing lately .... morning drinking even. I feel like drinking to say F U, but in reality that would end up being F me - so I won't drink tonight. Some might say my anger at her is really anger at myself for not being able to drink - that might be true - I'm not smart enough to know the difference.

I'll wake up sober tomorrow with enough energy to get to the gym in the afternoon - that's my focus right now.

In general, though, I am good - just feeling a little frustrated. Tomorrow will be better!!

Phoenix - maybe take a step back. I have to all the time. If you don't take care of you - you won't be there to care for the others. (I think you told me that.)

Hey All! I have a new granddaughter!! She is freaking perfect. Her name is Olivia Kathryn. I am in love.

Have an awesome day, guys!

Oh yeah, Nathan celebrated 6 months clean yesterday.
Congrats on Olivia AND Nathan Bobbie! I'm so happy for you! (And then)

Thanks PR. I was feeling kind of cranky today, and having a hard time dealing. I figured coming here and whining would make mw feel better - and it really did. But this situation is part of my life for now - so I've got to put on my big boy pants and do the right thing - every day.

Got in a little golf this afternoon, so a little fresh air and sunshine to chase the bad thoughts away.
