Boy am I glad you guys and your contagious spring fever are on the other side of the Atlantic ! I'm feeling great, the sun is shining, it's warm, the fields are green and some are profusely blooming, makes them look like yellow velvet. Trees are leafing out, the fruit trees are covered with pink and white blossoms, birds are chirping, building nests on my roof (incidentally making a mess in front of my windows, but ok, it's spring) I'm getting in a lot more walking because I want to appreciate this great weather, so I think the extra oxygen is making me happy. I FEEL GOOD ! If what I've got is contagious, here, I'm blowing you all a big contagious kiss ! GET BETTER everyone !

Good morning everyone. Sorry you guys arent feeling too hot! I had the hardest time falling asleep last night. I was overcome with fear that someone was going to break down my apartment door and kill me, so I had to keep looking through through the peep hole to make sure no one was there. It was frustrating because I knew nothing would happen, but I was still so afraid. Can anyone relate??? lol

I used to be afraid at night, like things couldn't get me during the day. Now I live in the country far from any neighbors, I've got a scaredy-cat big dog that hides behind me, and I don't get scared any more, at least not of nothing. I'd be scared if some screwed up person with a weapon bashed in my door and really threatened me, but I don't conjure up things to frighten me anymore. I don't know when I stopped or why, it just happened. Must be the wisdom that comes with age.

Eroica I can relate.

I'm being treated for (among other things) GAD. Some days I feel like I'm walking through a land mined field. As if I'm just one step away from disaster. Being in a constant state of heightened alert is exhausting. On those days I too don't fall asleep easily.

Pimptastic? Is that a spelling error too, or are you going to teach me a new word? No one has told me what kitty flowers were either. I may be fluent, but if it's not in the dictionary I probably don't know the word.

I'm having a bad day. My doctor called in a prescription for me yesterday for Prednisone (steroids) because I have bad aches in my ankles and knees (likely arthritis) so I didn't get the pills until 5:30pm yesterday and I took 2 with dinner then 2 more when I went to bed. and I was WIDE awake! They sped up my adrenaline so terrible and I felt like it was 90 degrees in my house. So I finally fell asleep around 2 am and was supposed to be at work at 8:30 am but I was too tired and my stomach felt lousy from the Prednisone so I didn't get to work until 10:00 a.m. and I had to take 2 pills with breakfast and 1 with lunch and I am still too wired and I am generally a very calm person but today I just am too hyped up.

Thanks for the PMs and such. I am back here at SR/SC and doing better. Just had a crappy few days. Rough few days. A day when I even drove right past my meth dealer's house... right there, so close. But I didn't do it. God I wanted to. I had cash in hand. But I chickened out, basically. Thank Whoever I'm a chicken.

Today I went to the lake and walked 2.5 miles down a 7.5 mile trail then turned and came back because it was getting dark. So a 5-mile walk. It felt really good and I'm in a much better mood for it.

Thanks again for all your thoughts, I appreciate them. :ghug

Proud of you for walking past the dealers house, no matter what the reason. You didn't go and that's what is important to me. Now you will have less cravings (every time you beat one, they get easier or so SMART tells me). So pat yourself on the back and know that you have made life easier on yourself.
