  1. Hi Bri. I have heard good things about CBT but have never done it myself. You are a young person & I would invite you to gently challenge yourself w regard to the anxiety issue. For example if being in a crowd gives you anxiety or talking to strangers or whatever, try doing those things in a limited and controlled manner where you can bail if need be. Just keep doing it over and over because practice makes perfect. Good luck. 🍀
  2. I would have no problems driving that vehicle. That is bad-ass.
  3. Nothing special here just wanted to share that one of the things I have to get through my head is to keep it simple. My thoughts get so complicated that I get tangled up in them and end up doing nothing. I have to learn to keep my attention & my efforts on the doable present. Only action gets results, anything else is noise.
  4. It is rare for a man to get AIDS from a woman. Think about it: rock stars and athletes and movie stars plow tens of thousands of women - can you name one that got AIDS? Magic Johnson did but that was from anal sex w a lots of women. There a myriad of other things you could have but they are all treatable.
  5. Anyone else ever wonder if life is just plain Satanic? Don't mean to be a downer,just how I am feeling.
  6. Not a bad day, Sunday, got somethings done, did some exercise, got a good nap, got a rough sketch plan of a thing I have been procrastinating; nothing amazing but could be worse. I'll take it. State of mind is so important. You have to want things & have the strength to put in the work on them.
  7. Got through Saturday night without drinking so that much is good. No plans at all today, just relax and whatever.
  8. Thanx Beth. So far so good. Made it to the Giant, got a nap, did some stretching and did a little bit of planning. Just chilling out watching basketball 🏀 and drinking decaf ☕. Feeling no urge for booze.
  9. Last night was Friday night (and St Patrick's Day) and I did not drink. So that is good. Now if I can get through today I will be pleased. The good news is I am not craving it. See what happened was in Feb I had 5 days off and right then some stressful things occurred so that double whammy had me drinking again. But now things have settled down somewhat and I am getting back to where I was before - not drinking & not wanting to drink. I need my body to be strong & my head to be clear so I can handle my daily life better. In my mind I am imagining someone reading this and wondering "what is the big deal?". The reason it is a big deal is the significant difference between how I occur in the world when sober vs drinking.
  10. Alcohol drains me of my energy, both mental & physical. It can be fun once in a while but the price for me is high. Thankfully right now I am at a place where I am not craving it. There are other things I want to focus on and accomplish.
  11. Fuck corporate death burger 🍔💩☠️⚰😬
  12. I had a snow day here and my office was closed and I knew that would happen so last night I did have 4 Miller Lite not bad because I really slept late this morning. There is some good news: I got a workout in shoveling snow and I have no desire to drink, doing just fine w decaf coffee ☕. And the weekend will be here in 3 days. Also I have been doing pretty good sticking to a semi vegetarian diet. I eat lots of eggs, pasta, cheese, rice, puzza, nuts and of course fruits & veggies. It helps me feel better and I have lost a few pounds. Also pleased that I got over this cold w/o needing antibiotics. I have 4 days off starting 3-24-17 so I am looking forward to that.
  13. The Guest House This being human is a guest house.Every morning a new arrival.A joy, a depression, a meanness,some momentary awareness comesAs an unexpected visitor.Welcome and entertain them all!Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,who violently sweep your houseempty of its furniture,still treat each guest honorably.He may be clearing you outfor some new delight.The dark thought, the shame, the malice,meet them at the door laughing,and invite them in.Be grateful for whoever comes,because each has been sentas a guide from beyond. - Rumi
  14. I had some Miller Lite last night and it was stupid because I really could have just gone to bed but I just felt like having them and putting some music on the stereo so that is what I did. It was fun and I don't have much fun in life so that's how that goes. Now today I am feeling somewhat lousy and I am not sure how much of it is attributable to the hangover vs the last remnant of this headcold. If I can get nap I will probably feel better.
  15. Whether due to a chemical imbalance or not, anti-depressants help some people so if you feel you would like to give it a try I hope no one stands in your way Andromeda. I wish you all the best.
