I just locked up the doors where I work!  Everyone is gone home. It's Friday afternoon. I made it 4 days without missing work!  Life is good!  
Classic rock is my music too. It's the guitars for me!  They speak to my soul!  I find I sleep easier when I put pandora on SRV radio!

Hey I was reading this post and this song came in my head! Should be your new theme song LOL

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I sailed away to China in a little rowboat to find you
And you said you had to get your laundry cleaned
Didn't want no one to hold you, what does that mean?

And you said
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving

You're on the road and now you pray you'll last
The road behind you was rocky
But now you're feeling cocky
You look at me and you'll see your past
Is that the reason you're running so fast?

And she said
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving

Never let another girl like you, whip me over
Never let another girl like you, drag me under
If I meet another girl like you, I will tell her
Never want another girl like you, have to say

Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving

Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving

Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving

Hi there..Just thought I'd add the lyrics to 'I won't Back Down' (That was most def one of my 'Power Songs' during detox:

Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down

Chorus
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way outHey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

I know that time is crawling right now but don't worry about the next hour or day. All you have to get through is the present moment. That's it. (that's all that we really have anyway, eh?) Wishing you the all the Clarity & Determination you'll need to punch through this. You're doing it! Hold Fast!

Thank you WantANewLife!  Now I can check on you way quicker!  Yes, I'm sure there are many more lurkers than me out here who are cheering you on!  The hydros have had me in an emotional crazy state too, but then that's how I got here. I spent the past year helping my best friend die and I needed to swallow all the emotion. At least I thought that was how to handle it!  Anyway, lets just cry and get it out now!  
I'm so very proud of you!  I've never been through your detox, but I've watched it. It's rough, but still very attainable!  Rock it out!  Life lesson: once you get your mind straight, you can do ANYTHING!

Breath, don't forget to breath. Did you sleep at all last night? You got the nutrients in your belly, the methadone is mostly gone from your system, you are already healing. I like to call it growing pains. You have this thing. I am excited for you. Try to keep moving around as much as you can and keep us posted.

I'm guilty of it being too much to scroll through!  I'm sorry!  I'm on a cell and I have to reload comments after about ten of them. I read every single one of them!  It just took me so long to check on you!  The night you came in with your head all messed up you scared me!  When I figured out you used Tom Petty as your motivational song (like me) I was determined you could do this!!  I didn't mean to be picky!!  I'm just going to so enjoy watching you kick this in the tail!  Not to mention how small my own problems look in comparison!  Again, thanks for sharing your journey!  You're helping me with mine and didn't even know it!  
5792946 tn?1382375753
