I think that holli was responding to your statement that you didn't look like anyone you would want your daughters to be seen with; holli's response was humor, I think.

yeah...looks to me like Holli was joking with you hooped - in response to your 'i certainly dont look like anyone you would want your daughter to be seen with' post.

Chill, man..we're all rooting for you here

Maybe the best part of recovery was getting my music back.
It's there within you Hooped - you just gotta get yourself well, and let it out.

Oh, I am sorry, Hooped. That is a difficult and life-altering loss; very hard to deal with. My Mom died late last year, also. Hugs, Hooped.

It got down to being that basic for me Hooped.
I recommend you see a Dr, too - but thats the bones of it, right there.

Good luck with everything, Hooped. I was going to include suggestions for the chat forum but it looks like you're hanging on here and don't need too many instructions right now. For what it's worth, I have been in the back of an ambulance due to alcohol withdrawl, hospital, detox, and a cheap rehab. The whole 9 yards. I didn't have the money for it but I'm paying it back as I get back on my feet. I know it's hard to think too far ahead, but sometimes you just have to think about basic survival. You can do it, good luck.

I understand. That experience will stick with you, Hooped; you will always remember the time and place where you were when you heard the news that your Mom was gone. But I kind of think that you need to move beyond the time and place and remember the person who was the subject of that message - your Mom, probably the one person in the world who would most want the absolute best for you and, if AA was helping you to achieve that best, she would want you to continue.

Hooped

This seems to be the latest iteration of the same theme that we've posted about for the past so many months. You are in a small town, you wont go to AA (online or otherwise), you think rehab is too expensive and you have unresolved issues and crises. Our advice and support has steadfastly remained the same as well. Go to rehab, get counselling support, go to AA online, get medical help. We have supplied you with numbers, web links, etc. You seem to absorb all of this and are appreciative but then you disappear when decision time arrives.

In short, everything has remain unchanged except for one thing: you are progressively deteriorating.

Time is running out. You really need to make a choice before there is no choice. You know what no choice means.

AS I've said before, I am always willing to give my support as all souls are worth saving irrespective of their condition.

But you need to take action. Now.
