I consider 13th stepping to be abuse of someone by using the program to find a way to get in their pants....

that said, dating is fine IMO....never was into the waiting a year thing....I mean..oportuinitys don't stay around forever..if you have something in common BESIDES the program...get to know each other and enjoy....

just a sensitive spot for me these days...

I'm with DK...how come no one hit on me????? oh maybe my age???

Just realized I haven't even posted today... I'm having a real problem with motivation to do anything. Since I'm not working, I'm supposed to be the home maker, and I'm really sucking at it. I've been zoning out, watching complete seasons of cable TV shows on the internet. Usually during sober periods in the past, I was pretty motivated to get stuff done, and I just seem to be devoid of energy. My gf told me today that I may as well be smoking pot, lol (which I'm missing a bit). The only thing I can think of that is different this time is that I'm on Paxil.

I'm discontinuing Paxil and will probably go on Prozac next week. It's always given me a boost rather than drag me down and has never given me side effect problems.

My therapist is at an OCD training workshop in Spokane today. I'm looking forward to hearing about it.

Paul, just read that thread (I don't read much in the Alcoholics forum). So sorry you had such a tough time.

I am struggling with a test right now (the LSAT). I am not dumb by any means, but that test is hella hard. I've taken several practice tests and it is not easy to separate my score from my perception of "me". I am struggling with that. So please know you are not alone.

Hi Alera,

Just want you to know that I'm sending you mucho good thoughts for when you take your LSAT. My daughter, who had learning disabilities all through school and could never test well for the life of her, not only graduated college with a B.S. degree in Environmental Science but went on to take her LSAT, finished law school in the laude category ("c" word won't take here), and has been an attorney in a great firm for the last four years.

You'll do it, too. It's just fantastic that you have this goal for yourself.

Big hugs,

Donna

Good morning secular people just a quick post to say im feeling a bit dissassociated at the moment, im not thinking about drinking but i am feeling purposeless.

Ive got no motivation and no real desire to get out and connect with people.

Im relatively content within myself but I realise I cant continue like this!

Good luck on your test Alera, im also studying at the moment and finding it really difficult, I feel like a dimwit although I know its really down to lack of practice.

Take care all and Im sure I will feel better soon. x

Thanks, Alera. I remember taking the SAT in high school. I had really bad checking rituals, and at that time, had never heard of OCD. I don't think I made it to the end of very many sections. I was confident of the answers, but had to keep checking that I filled in the right circle on the Scantron, and they had to be filled in perfect... It's actually upsetting thinking about it. I'm freakin' crying again... I don't know why I'm even bothering. I'm not getting any better.

I'm sure you'll do great on your test, especially in light of all your practice.
