Hi Jessicajo, so great to see you!
5 months is great. Things aren't always so peachy and there are bad days, but good days are on the way so just hang in there, ok?

Jpeace, a little downtime is very good for the soul. Let us know how the meeting goes.

na4today, I like your avatar. Congrats on day 9.

We can not do this alone, but we can do it together.

Day 5 for me, first day I have felt a little less anxious. Hopefully the meeting tonight will help more. Been reading the BB and about to head out to the pool for some light/water therapy. Have a great day all......I'll let you know how it went tonight!

Day 63, 9 weeks for me


Its early Sat Morning and I am answering email reading/posting here, walking the dogs, chopping some firewood, then heading off to a spritual workshop (meditation) for the weekend.

(((Hugs))) nogard

As my keychain says, its a new day for me. I just started working the steps again today. Thank you to my friend, who will stay anon, who gave me this board. I had trouble getting to meetings and most of the time they weren't my bag. I finally gave up when I needed the NA workbook and no one could find one for me. I'm a workbook type of person.

I needed a support group and I thought that maybe I could come here for online 'meetings' so to speak.

Thank you for this board.

Day 2.....I'm tired and moody and irritable, but at least I'm not hitting as many happy hours as I can (which is what I would normally be doing any other Friday after work)

:doh:
