Gilmer, you are a total diamond! I have been ok with him and shook hands yesterday so that is done now. I don’t think rehab is the place/environment for me, the laying low will not work as they will just keep pushing me and it’s making me feel worse about myself than I did before I got here. All has not been wasted here as I have learned a lot in some ways. I am only doing 30 days now definitely so will be flying home on Monday 9th.

I am crafting my recovery plan by myself in my spare time this week before I leave and when I get back will book 3 weeks away scuba diving. Diving is the only thing I do that I feel truly in the present moment and in terms of grounding me, giving my mind a rest from racing thoughts and the physical improvements I think this will be much better for me to do. I have been diving all over the world on my own and I have never drank alcohol on any of those holidays as it ruins the experience so it’s also a good thing I can do sober and enjoy.

I’m glad you and Mr. PTSD have let bygones be bygones and moved beyond the friction.

It sounds as if you’re in a good mental position to decide you’re only staying 90 days. You’re calm and no longer under duress.

And I’m really thrilled that you’re going to take that extended time of scuba diving! That should really put you in a good place!

Manta Lady...I am a diver..I know how you feel. I have not been able to dive this summer and our vacation end of the month does not include diving at this point. I am trying hard to add in a dive to see the giant pacific octopus! We are just spending so much money on the family reunion trip that is planned. Makes me crazy it is not what hubby and I want to do! Our kids dive as well. Glad you are able to clear your head, make your plan and work diving into it. I feel so at peace when I dive. I listen to my darth vader breathing noises, move to a zen place and take in all the wonderful things there are to see as I float around.

Snuf! So happy to read your posts. I was worried about it. Sorry it has been such a rough and scary time for you. I think you got some sound advice here. Isolating is strongly encourage by the AV. POST through your troubles. Don't worry about the readers...we choose to read or not. You need to share everything you want without hesitation. The very words you might need to read are could be one post away! Take care of yourself. Big decisions about moving do not need to be made while you are feeling so fragile.

good to see you ((Snufs))

there's a lot of love & support here for anyone struggling. I'm glad you came back. there's no need to feel ashamed of trying to get better.

hang in there, baby steps, you don't have to make any big decisions right now, just focus on taking care of yourself for the moment.

Morning, weekenders.

Snuf - Glad you posted. Sorry to hear about another self-harm incident. Please, post as often as you want to and don't hesitate for a split second. It's is tough to go through breakup, but sometimes it's necessary. I can tell from my own experience.

(((Hugs. )))

I just can't believe myself. Yesterday, while watching soccer, I ate ridiculous amount of peanuts and now my stomach hurts like hell and I feel like crap. Am I a kid or what?

I am wrestling with my presentation now and I have just two hours two wrap it up. Ok. Good thing about deadline is that it forces me to get rid of non-essentials.

Have a good one, weekenders.

See you)

Thank you, Andy and Koala.

Luckily, I am not the one who is presenting (my boss is), I am just doing all the job behind the scenes. Just sent him a file.

Now, time to head to the dentist.

Hope I will be back by the time the first match starts.

See you at our usual exciting soccer chatting!

And I think I can use "Merde" at my dentist

Edit: I speak some French

Good to see you Snufkin, I hope you can access some psychotherapy to help deal with the underlying causes

Good luck MidnightBlue.

I don't think I have any white underwear to hang out of my windows, which might be for the best.

I'm bored at work, I am trying to instigate a paper aeroplane competition.
