We really did grow up in the same way, albeit in different parts of Aus....I imagine you spent some teenage years in pinball parlors in groups, or on a date....oh yeah, that was romantic....oh....and there were often fish and chips involved. Oh yum.

❤️❤️

PS I LOVE the sound of a pinball machine.....Nick's dad bought one and put it in his old room....I want it.

Grief is a natural process sweetness - different for everyone. Raw 'feeling' is something we avoided with a passion when drinking...so it can be confronting when it comes in sobriety.

All natural, and not to be avoided (very hard and confronting sometimes).

I still miss my Mum and have a cry, and it's been well over a decade. Sending you big hugs.xx

24 more for me please!
Crazy work January seems to be going quite well so far (tax return deadline month). My second sober one and carrying the comfort of sobriety and quiet pride does help a lot. I know I will cope and I will only give as much of myself as is right.
Lots of love to you all ❤❤❤

I think I知 not used to feeling anything much. I drank for 35 years, since I was 15. I guess I numbed out all the hard things with alcohol. Now I知 experiencing the hardest thing I致e ever had to deal with, and the intense raw emotion is sometimes so overwhelming. I think after having to suppress my grief the last few weeks of being in ongoing social situations, now means that as I知 alone now, all the pent up grief is pouring out.
And I知 getting a headache. I really need to make myself get up out of bed and make myself a coffee.

Thank you Calmerwaters ❤️
