I can honestly say that alcohol really doesn't make me feel good anymore. And even small amounts make me feel like crap after it wears off and revs up my anxiety up for dayz.

I'm back to just wanting that little escape. Not so worried about how I feel later. It's ok though. Won't drink. Won't. Won't. Won't. Sorry. For a second I channeled my 8-year-old self.

Thanks for the hugs and such.

Windy, my best friend walked by my computer last night and your avatar was visible. She told me to pass on to you that it spooked the hell out of her. I told her I would as you would appreciate the thought

Never sure whether I liked that avatar or not. It's creepy but strangely alluring. I do, however, love the fact that he calls himself "big idiot man child."

Hopped in the car at 7-something this morning and drove to Texas. Messed with it for a while. He he...

Saw some friends I've known since right after high school, and it was cool. My hermit-like tendencies floated away a little bit. It's nice to be around normal people who don't do drugs and make decent choices and such. I even almost went over to a friend's house when I got home, but then it occurred to me I'm supposed to work tomorrow morning. Plus his pill-popper buddy is there and I'm just tired of being around it. And, though it's killing me and I miss him greatly, I have not even text messaged exBF. Kinda proud of myself. I wonder if my hermitism had anything to do with his sorry self? Now that I'm done with him all my friends are telling me they never liked him anyway. In a way I hope this is just friendly we-hate-him-cuz-he-hurt-you. I would hope that if they had such serious reservations about him more than 3 or 4 would have said something (not that I would have listened). But even so, I don't really participate in the evisceration but I've stopped defending him. And I like it.

Gneiss..
sounds like progress :ghug3 I understand about the friends and the "I never like him anyway" I hope to that they are just being supportive.

Windys av has always been a bit creepy but .... who can be scary with a name like that?
lol

Zen cat (hug)

Sometimes i get afraid, I feel unsafe, and i loose my compasion and strike out at others or even at myself....

I'm sorry when I do it, I'm sorry when i see others do it, I am sorry for all the wounded and hurting people i see in the wake of those sorts of storms.

but we can come together and support each other as we try to walk through our recoveries in a compasionate and meaningful way.

Sorry you got knocked around, I suspect I didn't help much

I'm gracious for the learning opportunity that all the wonderful folks at SR provide me. Openly I am thankful for your compassionate insight Ananda. I am also thankful that I'm learning...abet...slowly...with hard learned lessons...

You all make a difference...It was suggested (by my first psych doc) that I try to interact online with others. It ant easy for me...but I
:ghug try.
