this is day 12 for me, and i’m having a weak day. i know that there will be good days and bad days. and that bad days don’t mean that i am going to drink. it’s still my first impulse, though. i know that sometime that will fade. but not yet.
i am having lots of things in my life that are making me sad, all on the same day. family illness, computer failure, crummy not-summery-weather. i also slept in today, perhaps too late, and so i’ve been dragging all day.
crying seemed to help. and it’s 6 pm here, european time. it’d be normal for me to have a glass of wine right now. more than normal, it’s what i’ve always done. instead. instead i’m trying to rescue a dead computer, i’m going to roast a chicken for dinner. i’m going to drink some more tea. i’m going to have a bath. and i’m going to count on tomorrow being easier.
i’m glad i’m on day 12 and not on day 2. but i do feel like going to bed and crawling under the covers to HIDE…
Try a hot bath too, it relaxes.
You’ve got this. —Chocolate never hurts either 🙂
i did have chocolate, too, now that you mention it… good call!
Just get under that duvet, have a good cry and know we are sending good thoughts your way. And tomorrow it will be Day 13 and you will be so pleased you don’t have to start Day 1 again.
Cleo, i am so glad i don’t have to start again at day 1! ~ Belle
Crying is an excellent thing to do, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It releases toxins and brings calmness…major win! 🙂
i like this, SM, thanks for support-without-platitudes… it is soo helpful you have no idea!
You’re welcome! I’m about as platitude-less as you can get. 😉 Platitude…what a fun word to say. *L*
platitude, not to be confused with platypus …
hang in there. i’ll pray for you at Mass this morning (please say a little prayer for me, too, ‘kay?) peace & love. 🙂
