Oops, correction!

That site that I mentioned yesterday is www.knowingspirit.org . Sorry about that, hope that works better.

I'm doing all the feeling miserable things, not sleeping, crying when the least provoked, struggling to stay in the present, swearing without restraint, contemplating the need for professional help (fuck no!) and hating my existence as well as everyone else's.

But I'm doing positive stuff too. Refraining from excess eating/drinking/isolating/TV-ing/diving into fiction. I went to morning meeting for the first time in weeks, took myself to a tidal inlet for a picnic lunch and went for 2+mile walk after work (yahoo, the heat broke and went away). I called my CoDA phone buddy and I will continue to do the stupid (I'm a little pissy, ok?) constructive trudging along AS IF my head will get better and will thank me for it later.

Enough of me, I'm sick of me. I'm glad for your comments, sheepish that someone would address me as a soulmate!

I guess what's good about today is that even when we feel like scum on a pond, there are those who look at us with God eyes and see only promise and perfect imperfection. La di dah.


  1. At least you're sober and not in jail or a hospital. Because of that, you have the choice to continue.

  2. As long as you keep up the positive it will prevail. But you already know that don't you, which is why you are doing it in the first place. La di dah.

  3. heading in the right direction is sounds like to me, and your life sounds full.

  4. Your positive actions sound so very good and healthy - - - morning meeting, picnic by the water, long walk, sounds terrific.

    Makes me want to do the same.


  5. One foot in front of the other. One day and then another. It is all progress.
