Blah. All except one of my fish died. And it doesn't look good for the one that's still hanging in there.

And I was not accepted to my 1st-choice grad school. Still waiting on the other school. I've already been accepted at my back-up school, which is where I go now, so it's not a complete disaster. Still though...

Hmpf.

Sucks about the fish, Gneiss. But yeah, when one gets sick/dies, it tends to make the rest of them sick, too. We went through a rough patch with our fish a couple of months ago. *knock on wood* everything seems to be better now.

BAHAMAS?!?!? I WANNA GO!!!!!

Wow. A craptastic day, all around I guess.

To make myself feel better about the whole dead-fish-and-grad-school thing I went for a walk. Took my camera because the flowers are out. Got a nice picture of some tulips before my camera gave up the ghost as well. Just turned it on and *poof* won't work. At least the photos are on the memory card so I didn't lose them.

And then I went to the doctor and he saw the bruises on my arm from working the other day and he started to question me like I'd been abused (yeah... by one of my professors! Hardly counts as a domestic situation though). And what I thought would be, "Here's some medication, you'll be fine in a week" is actually "That's genetic and we can't really do much for ya."

I call a do-over on today.

OK...so i hurt my back Saturday lifting shelving (metal in boxes) out of the trunk and to the house. My back is a mess..and the worst is laying down..sleep is a painful experience right now.

I wanted to stay home and just cuddle under the covers, but it hurts less to be up...Dont wanna go to the dr cause it wastes hours and all they will do is tell me to use heating pad and take asprin or ibiprofen ...which i can do without the dr.'s permission, but probably won't...

just outa sorts....

should be on whiners with this one...sorry guys.

Just checking in to say Hi. I have been sticking to the safer sections lately also, mostly whiners. It looks like things are calming down. It is all the recovery talk that gets people riled up so maybe it would be better not to discuss recovery on the recovery site while we are all trying to recover.
Just kidding.

I think I can see the wisdom in that statement . To expand that thought a little further and apply it to me. Maybe it would be better for me not to scrutinize the recovery of others on the recovery site while I'm trying to recover.

LOL...The universe works in mysterious ways...no, really it dose (particle physics) and I needed to read that. Thanks Fub for the insight.

Good morning all!
Its cloudy here today...after having a few beautiful sunny days....:wtf2
I suppose it will help me do my homework instead of basking in the sun .....
I have counseling today..hope this session is a little less dramatic than the last one, and I hope I dont get in trouble for not doing my homework.....supposed to write down every negative self talk I have and take time to be sad every day so that I deal with some stuff...I didnt write down a darn thing and only was sad twice in 7 days...uh oh lol Seems too structured for me to try and be sad everyday at some point...besides I think I have pulled my head out enough now to let myself feel what ever I am feeling and not fight it so much...Did you know that people are periodically sad ? I thought we were always like lucky charms happy!
LOL Any who, Im hoping for a fantastic productive day.

:ghug s for everyone!

Have been needing a Secular Connection hit so popping on over and reading the last few days - missing you guys.

Sounds like yesterday was a do-over day for lots.. here we are in Wed - hopefully better.

I "sit" with a group on Tues evenings (zen-type sitting).. and a big topic on forgiveness came up last night and wow I just found myself feel like crying and crying.. Thinking about the stuff I have done over the years and how I feel toward myself about that time of life.. sadness and uncertainty in there for me about past stuff that I just could not accept now in my life.. I think I put it out of my conscious mind a lot but boy is it there.. Not quite sure what to do with these feelings - mainly trying to let them hang out in my head for a while and see where they go... maybe I'll get a dream message or something to help resolve this stuff..

On a cheerier note - we have rain and things are green.. Took a hike with friends a on Sunday and saw both jackrabbits and cottontails - is that a sign or what??

Have some new work projects and that is good ($$$).. and most of all I am sober and hanging in here.

:ghug

Oh the land of repressed emotions! I have traveled there recently. All I know is that I came out the other side feeling a bit lighter, and I hope you do too! You just cry all you need too!

:ghug and here is a group hug if ya need it!

I've been feeling kinda loserish today. I haven't gone to work or done any homework all week, which is probably a huge part of it; all my classes were canceled this week so I haven't had any structure and I really need it. Even that tiny bit of structure, having something to do for a couple hours each day really helps me.

I've been trying to actually go out and socialize but for a few days people have just been getting on my nerves. It's a lot like it is right after I stop using each time... cranky and antisocial. And because of that all my interactions with people seem negative, even though I don't think they are. Even here on SR I feel like I haven't quite said anything right in a few days.

Meh. This too shall pass, right?

:ghug I need one, so thanks for everyone who sent them around earlier.
