About 3 feet for now. But each time it snows...

You suck, Windy!

Hey, I just sold a vacuum cleaner on ebay for $199 that I paid 10 bucks for. One of those rare scores, and by far the biggest profit I've made yet. eBay and Paypal will get a share, but that still leaves me with a pretty good chunk of change...

Still here...still sober. Some things are starting to return to normal (like my bowels, not that you need to know, but what a difference...aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh....).

Just curious, Bam... how much were you drinking and how many days have you been sober? Glad you're feeling better!

Excellent score, doknob.

Bam, I used to make frequent lower GI reports but not so much any more.

It varied...a day off here and there.

I had 12 beers one night (when I was in a rage on Wednesday) and the next night I had six ice beers...and was sober starting this past Friday. It's not like that is a gargantuan amount of alcohol...but I'm thinking my body can't handle it as well as it used to...plus, all the anxiety and stress probably contributes...It's better that I try to stay stopped now.

If the worst of it means that I can't eat chocolate, smoke, or consume caffeine or artificial sweeteners, then that's fine by me. It could be a lot worse. I just hope I don't have to give up hot sauce or peppers. THAT would make me really upset. Food would become boring--I'd have to be more creative, and I don't feel like thinking/experimenting right now. I'll have to ask when I go back.

I figured that of all people, you’d appreciate the update.

That would be quite a bit of alcohol for me, but I'm a cheap date.

Sounds like you are off to a good start!

Why would you have to give up hot peppers?

Maybe hot foods are considered a stimulant...something that would affect my heart.

Well, yesterday, when I got back from my junk food run, I looked at my receipt to check my food stamp (I hate saying that) and saw that I now have a 'cash' balance, which means that my GAU was accepted. I didn't think I'd have any problems being accepted after completely breaking down at that psych eval, but I'm suprised DSHS didn't send me a letter notifying me of my acceptance (they send out letters for everything), although I did get one saying that I need to send in a copy of my certified birth certificate for my medical coverage, which kinda implied that I had been accepted. I have mixed feelings about being on General Assistance. I'm relieved to be getting some money, but still feel guilty about being on the program. I am starting to feel less like a basket case, so hopefully it will be temporary...

Here's what my snow fortress looks like now. Should keep the dogs in for a couple of months. BTW, it's all good with the neighbor regarding Sienna's toothiness. I helped her get her car out from being stuck in the snow the other day.

Hey, DK, good to hear it. I was wondering.

Ummm...I'm thinking this probably my spot. Not that the other forums aren't helpful, and all.

Hello All

Nice to see all the familiar names and welcome to the newer ones.

I'm back after.. well, you know.

Anyway, i'm back on track and looking forward to a sober holiday season, and beyond.

Keep well

Ron
