DK...while your car story is not a funny one, your sense of humor about it has been fun to read! I surely hope you get it all settled....as cheaply as you can. And yes, quit beating yourself up over the battery, fer cryin' out loud!

And what is it about waking up with headaches? I've been doing it for a week.

Thanks, Coffee. The car's all fixed, it's just that it cost me a lot more than it should have. Had I realized that the battery was the cause and not the result of the problem, it would have saved me the $160 I spent on the tow and the trouble shooting. There went the killing I made on that vacuum cleaner...

I'm also a bit frustrated at all the spacey things I've done while completely sober. I'm still looking for the inflation valve on my head...

DK..think of all the money you have saved since you quit drinking...gotta be a wash by now!
I hear you on the spacey things. I chalk it up to age and the millions of brain cells I killed while drinking... Nothing to worry about really. I do far less stupid [email protected] now...

Either it's SR, or I need to get off my lazy butt and clean out this computer...it's S-L-O-W...


...Hello, everyone! Just got back from an appointment. They're going to do more blood work and give me a monitor to wear later in the week. I spoke up for myself and now I feel like I'm making some progress through the system.

'Inflation valve on your head'.............too funny!

And.....I've got the spacey thing going, too! When does this clear headedness kick in?! :p

Bugs....you're right about not doing as much stupid crap. Maybe the bad part is we actually remember what we did!

That's true. They were usually blunders on a grand scale. Alcohol really puts the 'S' in stupid!

Hi Eroica, some crappy things have happened to me while in this early sobriety spot... no breakup (knock on wood) but some heavy duty nasty experiences. I found my AA support system, especially my sponsor, incredibly helpful. Even if AA doesn't work for you, I would recommend reaching out to whatever your sober support system is, and some of it should probably be f2f, if possible. Then I reminded myself that since I was going through it sober, I was making the best possible choices and _really_ coping, not just getting wasted and putting coping off for another day. When you go through it sober, you start to realize that if you hang out with the bad feelings, they eventually pass, and things get better. Feeling bad really is NOT going to kill you. You don't have to drink to kill the feeling.

Does that help?

*sigh* I'm visiting my fiance who lives many states away from me. He threw a big fit last night because I feel like I can't drop my job and move away from where I'll be in school in the fall to be with him. He left the house and bought a bottle of wine which he proceeded to have a couple of glasses of while I was trying to talk it through with him. I'm still sober. Feeling exhausted, sad, and in need of a meeting, though.

treat thoughts of him just like thoughts of drinking....acknowledge the thought/feeling...then focus on something else...repeat as necessary

It works pretty good most of the time

also...drinking will only make it harder to get past the feelings and stuff...I know cause i tried that once (a long time ago).

(hug) love scks
