i'm okay, i fell off my little pink cloud

Sunday, August 31, 2008


i have a lot of background that i'm thankful for in 12 step recovery support. one of the things i was taught is that you have to be careful of running ass-over-teakettle into a brick wall.
i found myself at the back end of august, choking and covered up by so much self-induced stress that i more or less ground down to a halt in communication and in my ability to move foreward in any emotional matters...
i couldn't seem to get anything done. i've been lethargic and unmotivated in all directions. i just "stopped". everything.
i finally decided that i had wallowed enough and wanted to feel better..... and to do that i would have to destress to a great extent. i've been woking to that end.
sparkpeople is one of the few things i do that is good for me. i had found myself signed up and drowning in at least 4 different "on-line survey groups". email would take 2 hours(or more) of every day to begin with.
i've changed the way i use my pc and besides sparkpeople and my diary, there isn't much else i am going to use the pc for, for a while. litle nasty addictive sucker that it is......fallible little human girlie that i am.....

    Miss Ruby - Like others have said - you are definately missed and glad that you are back. Glad to know that you are slowly finding ways to take care of you. Remember the 12-Step adage of HALT. I personally found that the H was not something I had to worry much about...but the ALT - were definately catches for me. And in German, alt means old. So, don't be old, take care of you!

    Welcome Back! You have been missed! Yes, the computer can be come overwhelming and it's so hard to decide what to keep and what to let go! The important thing to remember is you are doing this for you and you have to pick what works for you. So glad to see your blog and know you are OK. emoticon
