Angry Grrrrr :| Will this Ever End

Hour 10 minutes from Day 5; and I actually feel good; regardless of the title :p The title refers to the fact before bed last night our toilet backed up & now seems are frig\freezer is on the blink ( when to get some food and one of the frozen veggies looks "wet" so I grabbed the Chocolate Therapy to start there saving things Other then the container feeling a little soft the ice cream was ice cream . So not sure what to do .. Turned up the freezer setting moved things away from the "vents" in back & guess will check in an hour or so ...

Ah, yes, life is happening. Good thinking in saving the ice-cream.

I hope your freezer/fridge continues to work for you.

Once I had refrigerator problems and it was because a mouse got stuck in the fan.

By the way, and this is not disrespectful, but there is a specific thread for dealing with life's miscellaneous challenges. It can be better than posting in the Newcomer's forum, because your post will be visible longer and it is likely to be read by someone who will respond. It is actually one of the longest-running threads here at SR: http://www.soberrecovery.com/forums/...-me-river.html. Any crisis involving chocolate ice cream is likely to get immediate attention.

Life's first lesson sober is that life goes on. You'll still have problems, just have to find a new way to cope.

Oh, August, sorry about your fridge. All these things really suck...

Ice-cream therapy rocks)

One day at a time, this shall pass.. And the darkest hour is just before the dawn.

Glad you feel good.

Cheer up.

You are about to close down the first week - the toughest time, IMHO.

Anxiety is a b$$$h, sometimes I think I need a psychosurgery to take it out my brain)).

And looking back many things I've been anxious about - they were not worth it. But I keep falling into the same trap again and again.

Good luck with your walk for smokes and water)
