Self-Pity

I've got a bad case of it today. Feeling sad, discouraged and not a part of...

I'm going to force myself to get out and walk to the women's NA meeting to get some fresh air and exercise.

We all have those days, sometimes weeks of it. Get out get some fresh air and get to your meeting, hope you feel better.

I have had years of those days but what helps me is to keep tying my shoes and grabbing my coat and bag as I have those thoughts and going straight to where I have to be. Once I am there I can't run away and I feel so much better afterwards. It boosts my self-confidence....I am going and thats that when my little brain starts the negative nonsense.

Keep going!!! Huggs - Kim

At least you are recognising that you've got it!! It's when you start becoming oblivious to it that it becomes really dangerous IMO. You know that you've got it bad so you know that you've got to do what you've got to do.

Thanks for posting.

a suggestion....do something for someone else.

if i cant grab a newcomer ive recently been doing some simple stuff for older people...

checking in.......changing light bulbs......bleeding air from radiators.......
shopping......clearing snow......trying to make their house warmer through the winter....

just a thought.

I've had many of those days too.

You're doing a good thing by getting outside and taking action.
