Sounds a bit too familiar. I finally learned to have two faces, my smart face and my dumb face. Otherwise I have found myself in awkward situations where people will ask me to do things for them, especially at work, because they know I have the information they are missing.

I run into more trouble with the large number of people who seem to do best by just doing things by route (is that the right word?) and don't do well if they have to look at any but the black and white. I have to remember though to focus on how important it is for ME to think things through and do all the thinking stuff and NOT focus on trying to get other people to see how complex things really are....when I focus on getting others to get my veiw...i end up feeling disconnected and frankly a drink starts to sound good.

So if i just remember to processs through things my own way and allow others to do it thier way without so much judgement, it really helps.

Sorta a rant there....

My day is going ok. I can't say I'm happy....but i feel just a little bit more centered. There are enough things going on in my life right now that i there would probably be something wrong with me if I didn't feel pretty uncomfortable right now! :ghug

Hey DK...maybe get some sleep if you can...as long as the anxiety doesn't get in the way of that. Sleep sometimes helps me...

I just don't have any motivation to do anything. I did more when I was smoking pot everyday than I've been doing this week. I've forced myself to do a few chores and today I went and took a food handlers card test cuz I had to, but other than that I haven't done anything. I haven't taken the dogs to the park all week either and they're bouncing off the walls. I haven't even felt like posting today, had to force myself to post this...

One of the tricks I've used for several problems is to focus on what I can/will do.

So, when I "can't eat" meaning something good...I focus on what would i be willing to eat (smoked oysters) and i eat that.

So when I "cant/wont" do the kitchen clean up or the trash...what will i do...call a freind, go out with the dogs, clean my glasses...anything.

Don't know if that will help, but you know it took me along time to get motivated...I'm sluffing off here right now instead of doing what "needs" to be done.

I knew doorknobs are often used as higher powers, but had no idea DK was that powerful!!!!! You know he did it again a little later.

We better tip-toe around him from now on

Sorry.. Doorknob Almighty only deals with alcohol, character defects, and temporary website crashes.

P.S. Your Step Work has been most excellent.
