Now Janet is a very wise woman, and most of all - one of the people that I respect highest. Because she gives herself full in whatever she does. Without hesitation.

I am much more reserved and stands a little back and watches sceptically before I come out in the open. Never the less, sceptical or not, I am not necessarily stupid, and can follow a lead or a good advise when it comes by.
So after a couple of persistent e-mails in my inbox, I thought that I had better come here and see what was going on. If Janet is new to you - I can tell you that you are not in doubt if she means something - it becomes VERY clear, very fast!!

I have most of my introduction on my home page, but short story is: Successfull as hell when it comes to anything not personally related. Is rated amongst best in my field. But struggles with an unbalanced relationship/self image and things to achieve for myself.

Could not figure it out, and has decided that the right thing for me was to put 5218,6 miles!! between me and my family for a while and figure out who I am. Honestly - best thing I have done in the last 20 years. Total control and balance, although my job now includes roaming the Middle East Muslim war zones as a Christian single lady. At least I have gotten my travel skills polished of a bit (blog).

But let us see if that balance continues next week when I return to my old home for 3 weeks emoticon

Time will show. But as Janet has become one of my dearest friends in here, I decided better listen to the wise lady and do what I was told. And that it woud stop her yelling at me in my mails . emoticon The rest is on my sparkpage and in the recent blogs Thank you for the warm welcome and spark goodie, even before I managed to come by here and introduce myself.

Hi Janet and welcome to the Team. We are happy to have you join us. Thanks for sharing your story. Heres to sobriety from whatever it is - when I joined AA they told me you could drink it, smoke it, sniff it or pop it - if you are an addict it all goes the same way.

Hugs Wispy.

My name is Janet, I am happily married to a wonderful guy that it took me 31 years to find. We have been married 14 1/2 years. I will be 48 in June. We have 2 fantastic sons, Nick 13 and Daniel 11. I am also Mom to 3 Chihuahua's and 1 Rat Terrier, and a STRAY TOM CAT named Starkist, that I feed twice a day, but he isn't OURS!!! Hahaha.
I have drank pretty much steady since 1987 when I was attacked (yes, the ugly way) on Christmas night. I told no one for 4 years, BIG MISTAKE, finally put myself into counseling. Thought I had let it go. Apparently not. So when I had Nick in for counseling I saw MY old LIFESAVING COUNSELOR, Jennifer!! And man was I needing her, though not admitting it, I do a lot of that. Anyway I see her every Friday and I also go to a Womans Discovery Group once a week and have recently been trying acupuncture.
Jennifer has opened my eyes that I am addicted to Xanax, thanks to my Doctor whom I thought was doing me a favor....3 years later I take 4 mg. a night, everynight. NOT GOOD.
Adderall, to help me get going and lose weight......another big thanks for another big problem. Welbutrin, which I need so I have no problem with that.
I had been extremely stressed these past few months due to so many things, too many to explain here. Last year I went to the devil and back with my ADHD son and his school...those who know me know that story. So I have been sober twice since being on Sparks, once for over 100 days and this last time I think I made it like 85 days and DOVE off the wagon.
My drinking causes NO problems at home, have NEVER missed work due to it, so I had never considered myself an alcoholic until I tried to stop. Big wake up call.. Though I drink at home and NEVER drive, and I just sit on the couch sucking whatever the flavor of the evening is, no problem, except my weight. THAT is WHY I wanted to stop, my weight and I am almost to the point of being obsessed with it.
12 days ago I jumped my 6 foot fence , locked myself out of the house (I'll admit it) and totally busted my a$$ during the landing, hence the swollen feet. Left foot I rebroke a bone on top of foot that I had broke 11 years ago almost to the day. Right foot is swollen as well. No xrays on that one. I am just glad it wasn't an ankle or hip, leg, arm, whatever,,,,,,could be worse. No insurance either way....more stress.......UGH.
So needless to say there hasnt been a lot of cardio going on here. I have been lifting some weights and trying some new strength training stuff. Which is cool. Weight loss has been at a halt for a while now and I know I have gotta tighten up.
Thank you for inviting me to your new group Monika, I appreciate it and I am so sorry this ended up so long, just figured I'd lay my cards on the table and be truthful and upfront from the start. So there ya have it.............I will do better on getting here everyday.
I did get a hit on a job today so hopefully that will go well and I will have that to help and it will keep me busy. I have to stay busy when I get the urges or go to sleep, only 2 options right now that seem to work.
Hello to all of you I know and nice to meet any peeps that I ont know yet but soon will!
Thanks Again and Much Love,
Janet
