Nice! Sounds yummy! I hear ya on the guilt part. I too, have been working through feelings of guilt for past use. I'm learning to focus on and live in the now. I'm currently reading "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle. The now is all we have. We can't change the past so why worry about it? The future is not here yet so why worry about that either? Enjoying the now and creating enjoyable moments are what counts, my friend. Good on ya!
Thanks a billion. You are tremdously kind. It makes me remember what I preach. Guilt is a negative emotion. It is self indulgent. Stop thinking about the past. Focus on right now!
I love to cook & make recipes. Just now I made Don a pasta salad w tuna, chilli dulces and olives. Bind together w mayo. Supposed to be served after 2 hrs in fridge. He couldn't wait. Had 2 huge plates. Makes me feel good.
No need to feel guilty:) It can be tough and you're right. Pain meds are just needed sometimes. Sounds like you are on the right track:) Here for support:)
Had to readjust the Taper 3 days ago. I know exactly what regular withdrawals feel like. This is an even nastier & having done both in the past, Tapering seems like purgatory. Just enough hell to make you miserable & feel guilty that you ever took a pain pill.
Logically, I couldn't have survived surgery without meds & it has only been 2 months recovery.
But I taper down then Bipolar acts up, I fail to take the extra schuduled Bipolar meds or I won't take the Valium & back up I go. WTF.
I shall try something new. Cutting 10/325 into 25/325.
I'm proud of you as well, my fellow artistic friend! You are right in being proud of clean time during the holidays. I sometimes miss my booze around the holidays. However, being proud of staying clean and sober helps! Keep creating and keep being proud!:)
