Day 7....a little positivity for those who might need..

Fell asleep around 11-ish,,,give or take 15 minutes.  I try not to look at the clock at night...I find that really gets to me. I woke up around 7.  Not too bad!!  Only "depressed" feeling I had was the thought that my other half wouldn't be here at home with me today.  Being alone can wreak a little havoc.  I suggest to everyone...get your social life back as soon as possible!!!  I'm going to go visit my sister and her grandbaby today!!  That little girl makes me smile like non other. <3  Actually have no need for immodium today and my body aches are ...well....I cant' tell that I have any..??  Other than the normal crappy-mattress-aches. LOL  Another day that I woke up and didn't totally dread it being here...I'll take that as well!  Going to be doing some yard work to get it all pretty for spring!  The sun is shining, flowers are blooming...omg...did  mention the smells of the outdoors??  Flowers were so strong and sooo wonderful! Loving life clean, clear and, for the most part, happy!  I wish everyone could feel this way...I know everyone has it in them!  Much love and peace.... <3

this is my journal entry for today, but....I dunno....it always helps me to get on here and read some positive things.  Since I'm experiencing them....I figure the way to stay happy is to spread happy!!  I'm cheering all of you on.  Remember, you're not alone...we're all connected and what one goes through we all go through.  Keep up all the great work everyone is doing to live a wonderful and clean life!

Thanks IWill & minn!  Life is so clear and open for me now!  I've been so busy already today.  That's another things others MUST do.....keep busy, be creative, do or start up something you do or used to love doing, be social....they not only mend the body and mind, but the spirit as well.

I love your post!  You are right about getting our social life back!  While I was trapped in hell with vicodin, I had a really hard time dealing with other people.  Keep posting, it really helps all of us:)
