Question

What to do, what to do?


I am supposed to go out tonight. Dancing.
Dancing is my life. Love the clubs, Love the
night life.

I've learned over time to not go out when I'm
upset or whatever.

The last few years I quit going out and stayed
home to do lines and whatever else it was that
I did.
It was actually New Years Eve the first time
I was given a whole bag of my very own.
Mmmm, ;-)

I was thinking how awesome it was going to be
this year because, I won't be sitting at home
doing lines abm.

But I'm getting nervous now. I tend to think I'm
stronger than I am sometimes, and have
even broken my knee cap with this thinking
(long story) but it's something I do.

There will be tons of drinking and drugs out tonight.
Normally that doesn't bother me, but I only have
7 weeks under my belt, New Years Eve, and I am
a little upset about something.

Part of me wants to let all this go, and just go out.

Part of me says, No your not strong enough.

I don't know....

I know someone is going to tell me, you know your
answer, but I'm not there. I don't know it yet.

I'm hoping writing it out and posting will help me figure it out.

Meh... :-<

My humble advice is stay away. Big surprise, eh?

I had a chance to go to a Christmas dinner and I declined because it was in a bar, even though I know the people there would not have cared if I didn't drink. You'll know when you're strong enough.

Find a sober friend and/or family and just hang out, play games, whatever. It's just another night. It's just another night. It's just another night...

You can do this.

Take care of yourself.

ah ha... those are the words that I couldn't think of but was looking for. I often read things on here and think to myself, If you have to ask yourself of anyone else, the answer is probably No.
I had to ask, so I know I'm not ready.
Next year will be different. I will be ready.

Exactly.... I have had many fun nights on New Years, and I CAN go dancing anytime. Maybe I'll watch the ball drop this year.
I don't actually feel like being around anyone right now. I'm not sure why. But I'm okay with that. Miss social butterfly has a whole new year to do that in front of her. ;-)

Being alone doesn't have to be lonely. Personally, I recharge my batteries by being alone. Although since I stopped drinking it takes a lot less time to recharge and I really enjoy being around people again.

Enjoy the time alone.

Wishing you peace and joy in the New Year.

Yea, I normally don't mind it. Tonight I can feel my legs wanting to just get up and GO.
GO. GO. GO.
I just looked at my dog and cat though, One is in her princess bed with her electric blanket, the other is in the tent, ohhh, wait nope, Now he's decided to go to the basinett.
Nothing, not even dancing is worth risking doing some lines... They just rock my whole world. I'd be so lost without them.

Stay home, but don't watch that stupid ball drop. You will only get depressed. Stay on with us and make me laugh. I'm feeling a little depressed, just because things aren't going the way I want them to go. But, learned along time ago, that, that ain't happenin. So stay with us....but stay away from "the Ball".

Yeah, you could be Dick Clark--you'd think the guy would've found something new to do after all these years.

Quote:
Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

Angry Can't deal with these guilt trips.

Quote:

MAYBE NO ONE SAW HER THREAD. If I had seen it and could offer anything then I would have.
Please don't try and put a guilt trip on me right now.
I'm already having a hard time.

I'm so not in the mood right now. I can't solve the worlds problems. I have a hard enough time solving my own.

If she had stayed I'm sure someone would have responded.
MANY times I don't get responded to, but I don't get up and leave.

I'm sorry guys, I'm outta here. Can't do this right now.

boy, just when I thought I was gonna have some fun. Lucky, you better apologize. Done's right. We were dancing...not posting..at the time. If she gave it a minute, when the music was done, we would have seen her.
