I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
Oh dear. Lucky for them they've got you to look after them.
LR - yeah it was just a personal thing with regards to the alcohol.
Meds taken and getting ready to go. Gonna walk into town - takes about 50 mins. Won't risk a bus today as roads are likely to be gridlocked. A lot of people heading this way this weekend. I'm off in the opposite direction for today at least.
^^ I need to be able to "like" that last post, SOLB
Yay - we want pictures when you do SOLB
SOLB thats tremendous!!!
I can't do it until after the mad hatter's tea party tomorrow anyway, might be a job for after my last ever therapy session with Vicky on Monday . I am quite excited in a scaredy cat kinda way. I will post pictures when I manage to get one up though and you can all admire my festive clutter
(Still haven't done any exercise though and I feel like a massive fat barrage balloon ... I think I'm going to go on a diet until Christmas, don't want to start my new year feeling porky and miserable)
You will all be pleased to hear that Bear is not longer in my bad books. He is very kindly loaning me his floor tonight so that I can get to a swim tomorrow morning. I would have had to get up at about 5am if I had driven from home tomorrow morning.
As for coming out, for me it was very difficult but the more people I tell the easier it becomes. There have been very few people that have not been supportive and to be honest these were people I had little respect for before I beame ill, because of their other characteristics.
Having said that, my problems are minor and of short duration compared to a lot of people on here and what worked for me might not work for someone else. You ahve to do what you thinnk is the best thing for you and at the right time in your life when you feel you are ready
Well I'm home. Very drunk I guess. That's about my heaviest session of the year so I promise to be sensible from now on until this time next year. Got to get my act together though as I've got friends round next Tuesday for a traditional xmas gathering that we have. That means I've got to get out tomorrow and get a Christmas tree. Also, must do so running. If I don't do it tomorrow I may be asking for encouragement to get myself out on Sunday.
Good to hear bear is forgiven. No more confusion over that issue anymore!
SOLB - good to hear you're giving the old OCD a kick up the backside. A xmas tree would really give it good kicking. Let's do it!
No reply from my friend yet re phase 1 of the plan. Come on, come on, come on. It's gotta happen!
Spoke too soon - reply came through from my friend just as I posted this. Phase 1 is go!
Amazing how much I can sober up in 45 mins. Progress on phase 1 was obviously very much on my mind when I stumbled in. Rightly so I guess. Thanks for the positive feedback. Hope you guys are OK.
