Morning All, just had breakfast on the first day at rehab. Bit overwhelmed as I live on my own so having so many people around when I get up is something I am going to have to get used to lol. Had a counselling session yesterday on a few hours after I arrived and counseller is from Australia, seems like a nice chap. It's going to take a while being comfortable talking to someone in person too. I have meditation in 20 minutes then we do gratitude and get a 30 minute break then a 2 hour group therapy session. I have an exercise to do now where I have to do a roadmap of my life, noting all the good the bad and the ugly things that have happened along the way, I will start that in my freetime this afternoon. Then at 4pm there is a womens group which will be a bit odd for me as I don't really do that sort of thing and have very few female friends so another thing I will have to throw myself into and get out of my comfort zone with. I signed up for something else at 6pm about triggers, not really sure what it's about but I am going to give everything a try.

It's hot, I have 8 very swollen mossie bites and are dog tired due to time difference. Well, got to love you and leave you all, off for meditation. Take care all and be good xx

Manta, tell them we know where you are and will mount a commando raid to retrieve you if they don't do right.

Successful end of Day 24 for me, folks! No AV chatter though Tuesday was one of my usual drinking days during the week. Had a bit of anxiety and irritation , but all is well now and I am sleepy. Signing off! Have a great day/peaceful night wherever you may be.

Morning, weekenders.

Venus -My comment that the shirt is cute has probably been lost among my ramblings. Glad Nick liked it.

Trach - That is a great quote, I love it. I am just struggling to believe it relates to me too.

Sao - Hope your man's flu will pass soon. Get well!

I overate yesterday and feel like crap.

Now contemplating should I go to the office today or tomorrow. Usually when I go to the office it's a totally wasted day in terms of productivity.

Great accomplishment, Calmself!

I’m very sorry you’re sick, Sao. Hope you feel better soon.

MantaLady, we all have to stretch in order to grow into a strong recovery. Adjusting to this new and alien atmosphere is a way to get “broken in” really quickly with emotional stretching skills.

Getting used to the drill at the current surface level will help you get the most out of it.

Good morning and happy hump day. Wow was the thread ever busy yesterday. Took me a while to ready thru everything last night. By the time I was done, Iwas too tired to post and went right to bed.

Manta, I'm very interested in your days at rehab. I'm sure your very busy, hope you get to post.
Wishing you a productive day MidnightBlue.
Hope you get better quickly Sao.
Good job Calmself. #25 coming up!

So, when you're in the ring, do you struggle with why you're there?
