No problem. You and everyone else here has always been a big help and sounding board

Anyways, super late checking in tonight, but Im still here just been busy

SR has worked for me. Not having booze around that i wanted to drink worked. Not buying booze for other people (holidays) helps.
Staying away from drinking helped. So did channeling my attention into something positive, exercise, finishing a project.

I've considered meetings but always shy away. A meeting wouldnt hurt, I'd just need to get past the anxiety about it

Just working on making things better a little each day for now. Thanks for being there

Dear V? I was only kidding when said that; I’m sorry Kenton that you too seemed to have taken it personal. Was doing a tongue in cheek response to someone else’s post a page or two earlier. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one that’s faced an issue with Chrome- hit thanks & it brings you to very top of page your in! Hopefully, it’s been resolved for good coz I love reading all postings as I never know what might be a blessing to me or how I could be supportive to another
Thanks for your kind words SL! 24 pls

No changes, they tried to take him off the vent, but oxygen dripped and heart rate spiked, so they will try again tomorrow.

Thank you Calmerwaters ❤️
I can relate to the grief. I've had bouts of wracking sobs, and then times where I'm just feeling empty and lonely. I try to keep it together in front of my kids, but I've been struggling with my mom's death. I know it's going to take time, and I will always miss her, but in time, my heart won't feel quite as broken.

(((((Delilah))))) it does take time.
I’ve just booked in to see a specialist grief counsellor. Four months down the track now. Hopefully she can help me work through my feelings.
So much love and support to you, I know how very tough it is, trying to hold it together for your family, when your heart is breaking ❤️❤️❤️

Good morning all.
Bit nervous for my first trip back to the gym since we got the dog. That's 4 months! I will just have a swim because frankly I'm not fit enough for a proper workout but I am hoping it gives me some motivation to get back there regularly. In those 4 months I have gained about 10 pounds so committing here to lose it again - slowly and steadily with the main focus being on the positive effect of exercise and diet on my mental health.
Lots of love to everyone facing grief, illness and fear today. Sobriety is of course a gift but it can leave us exposed to the raw emotions we blotted out for so long. That "escape" is not an option any more so hopefully our togetherness will help us find a better way. 24 more please
