ananda - I love this approach - time limit on feeling sorry for yourself (or any number of other whines).. Can I borrow this rule?.. and get on with the solution (brilliance!).

TSH - hope you are having a sweet time out with the sweetie. Alanon can be a pretty big dose of the new and different - it is my only real 12-step experience .. hopefully your husband will end up having a valuable experience there.

furb - I did not know how you were doing alcohol and sugar at the same time.. you picked the least of the evils to slip on that is for sure! Hope you enjoy the sweets..

night all....KB

Was gonna post an hour ago and couldn't bring myself to do it

was panicing and full of fear but it has passed somewhat. Am gonna go get coffee filters and cigeretes and get back to my work now that the drive is back up. Thank god the techies were willing to fix it on the weekend...lost about 4 hours of work, which i couldn't afford..but panic won't help.

A little concerened that when i paniced there were only 2 people i was willing to call (niether of which were available at the time)...gotta work on that cause sometimes I need a voice at the end of the line answering in real time and hearing my tones and tears to help me through the rough patches....

I don't think any human being can really make it through sane without that human connection when things are rough.

Anyways..better now..not great but not on the edge of a cliff (want to say abesss, but don't know how to spell it lol).

Hope everyone is doing ok today...

Hello, all.


I get like...'I don't want to go out in public at all' sometimes and I'm having one of those days today. Actually, I've been like this all weekend. It'll probably pass soon.

I'm ready for spring...I really don't like the winter. It certainly does not help my mood.

I want some greenery and tweety birds...

I think they're tension headaches... but they still suck!

Now if that ain't the Addictive Voice as described by Rational Recovery I do not know what is

http://www.rational.org/html_bullets/Bullet10.html

Do _you_ want the kind, or does _it_?? Hehe... I'm digging around that website. Very interesting.

those thoughts seem to be floating around in a lot of people today...

I about had a cow when i left my hotel room to go get cigeretes and cofffeee filters (first time out all weekend..working hard on report) and i discovered that in this town the liquer store is open on sundays and right across the street from my hotel.

came back....thought my blood preasure was gonna go through the roof, shook, debated and called my sponsor.....feeling better now, sorta took the steam out of the whirlwind and settled me.

back to work not allowed too many breaks today :ghug

Huh, my ignore list is really short. I guess it's just a special few that get under my skin. That's good.

I think that I want someone to tell me what to do...I think that is why I feel so indecisive some days..what to do..what to do...because I know myself well enough to know what I normally would want to do but when the time comes I freeze up...i think I want someone else to make the decision for me so that I dont have to be responsible for the outcome no matter how small..i never thought of myself as one to negate responsibility and actually i despise people who do...oh sh*t...maybe that has something to do with it all...ughhh in my head it goes on and on...beautiful today and I sit inside watching movies...what the hell am i afraid of...i want a different life...active life...this is so not me ...not me on the inside....I am a life lover someone who cherishes every opportunity to breath deep and run for it whatever the it may be...but not now..not this time in my life..i feel blocked..frozen...I dont like this me
Thanks for reading my insanity....

Greetings, secular peeps.

TSH (or THC, lol), I haven't been in top form for a couple of days. I'm not sure what my deal is. I just haven't felt good. I've been in a bit of physical pain since my little gymnastics experiment and think I'm gonna have to spring for a chiropractic visit or two. Valentine's Day set me back 32 bucks for some flowers that will probably be dead in a week... what can I sell on eBay???

Geez, SR hadn't sent me into a huff like that in a while. :wtf2 is my problem?

Sure you want a chiropractor and not a massage therapist, DK? That neck cracky-thingy chiros do scares the bejeezus out of me. Massage on the other hand, is awesome. I'm thinking of treating myself at the end of this week.

I must have missed the drama... or I caused it and never went back to look.

I wouldn't mind a massage, but I gotta get my hip put back right first. It was messed up before I worked out. I thought it might help, but it didn't. Just added some serious muscle soreness to the mix, which I really don't mind, except I've had some weird pains...

I'm here.


Feeling queasy.

I don't like working when I'm sick (it's not anything that anyone can catch ...you don't want to know...so don't ask...).
