My 26 year old daughter watched it too. I wish I had been able to prevent her from watching it but I was too late. I do think tho it has woken her up to a reality that was needed though because her understanding of the Muslim community was very muddled and for her there is no life outside of her own. This is a great opportunity to arm our kids…[Read more]
Hi @Tim I was feeling extra sensitive yesterday too. Unfortunately my daughter watched the live stream footage of the attack before it was removed and had sent the link to me. I chose not to watch it and am so glad I didnt because it affected my daughter deeply. So glad you woke up sober and feeling better this morning. Sometimes looking after…[Read more]
It’s all good @seedynomore – i instigated the separation. just replied to lynnelowe that it’s actually amazing when you stop drinking you can actually fully see what’s going on 🙂 The yoga retreat was awesome.
Hello hello! Thought it was about time I posted an update. I don’t really have much to say but just that I miss you guys and wanted to feel like part of the crew again. I’m not sure why I stopped coming here but I do know I am still forever grateful for you all. Still sober but I have no idea how many days. I guess I just don’t think about…[Read more]

Morning LS So I’ve been having terrible hayfever lately and on windy days I’ve had to shut myself inside and close all the windows. I’ve been a terrible hayfever sufferer since I was 26 and it sucks when I really just want to be outside in the sun.But good ole google has given me some interesting info on pollen and connected food allergies which…[Read more]
That is fascinating! Well done. I have never heard anything like it. Could you post the site? My friend suffers terribky so demands steroid injections from the Dr who is not happy but obeys 😄.
Clever you. How is your heart and hopefulness? Still seeing your depressed man friend?
Thats such a cool quote @oceania@trace Yeah I’ve been beating up on myself way too much lately. Accepting myself is so much harder than I ever thought possible. Write that book trace. Hell just write any book. You are a great writer x
Hi @tim Yep I know that lonely feeling you are talking about. As for yr new friend, how cool is that. Just don’t forget to look out for early warning signs that she may be too much like hard work. Put yourself first!! I’ve noticed ciffee and energy drinks make me feel more anxious so I’m cutting back too. Hope yr day is awesome 🙂
Hi peeps. Just had my breast biopsy and I’m so relieved that part is over. Seems the place i went to for the mammogram and ultrasound weeks ago, failed to tell me the biopsy was only a precautionary measure and they were pretty sure I have a benign fibroid. All this worry for so long needlessly. Not very professional but im glad I can relax a bit.…[Read more]
You are a warrior. oxoxox That part is done and I hope you get that call soon where they tell you it is nothing serious. A friend of mine has had several biopsies of lumps in her breasts, all came back as fibroids/harmless benign lumps. oxoxox Still scary and I always find that waiting for health test results is its own excruciating…[Read more]
Spot on !@reginald Its like we go through this amazing transformation where we re evaluate everything. Was a bit scary for me to confront my failings and procrastinations and they niggle away at my subconcience all the time. Can’t go backwards so have to move forward and try to catch up with the me thats been missing for many years lol. Its kind…[Read more]
