Dee thanks so much for the reminder about Ayers. I completely forgot about her going away.

Darkling, so sorry you are struggling. Is there some reason you didn't come to SR for help? So glad you're back with us.

Thanks everyone. Your support means more than you will ever know.
I am making myself miserable in life.....resenting this, fearing that.....
I hadn't perhaps realised just how small I had let my life become; constantly making mountains out of molehills.

Man DS, you just seem like you have come so far. When you say your life became small, do you mean that you weren't doing much beyond worrying? Did that have anything to do with picking up again?

Awww, Darkling, I'm so sorry. Glad you got right back here. The path is not always straight as those of us who've fallen and gotten back up well know. My last slip was a bitter road sign pointing me back in the right direction. I hope your recent slip points you in the right direction too.

What do you mean about your life becoming small? Is there anything you can pinpoint that is making you feel that way? Making mountains out of molehills is something unhappy people and people with anxiety often do. What can you do to try to broaden your experience and calm you down without drinking? Sometimes it's the smallest things that make a difference.

Today I'm feeling a bit low as my daughter's gone back to school and my HTB has gone to work a job in another state for a week. I don't have much to do, and that always puts me at risk. I'm going to start working on n adult paint-by-numbers to fill some of my empty time. I find doing that theraputic.

Thanks for reminding us that Ayers was having a week away, Dee. I thought I'd remembered that, but wasn't sure. I hope she's enjoying.

Hang in there and treat yourself well this week friends. I overindulged last week, so if anyone has any diet tips, please send them my way! Haha.
