    Hello all
    Yesterday i was realy sad and depressed as to what happened in chch.
    Realy felt like numbing the feelings out,spent the day by myself got no /very little support from family which is sad.(no more isolating )
    Im a Big feeler/very sensitive person this can make living in the world difficult and a challenge.
    I normally dont watch the news…[Read more]

    • i’m sorry @Tim, I am also an “empath” or sensitive person, I pick up vibes or waves of emotions from others or just sometimes places themselves. Treat yourself gentle, is there something you can indulge in to feel better? Swim in the surf? probably cool there now tho. Whatever, sending good vibes (which you could possibly pick up too) out…[Read more]

    • Me too @tim I’ve been trying to manage my media intake

      You are doing so great

      Can you reach out to your family for support? Just go and spend some time? They might not realize how much this impacts you?

      I think a swim or walk in the forest sounds like just the ticket @reena x

    • 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]

    • Big hugs to you! It is so devastating even more so being a sensitive person and living in Christchurch ❤️ Well done on staying sober and looking after yourself, that’s awesome!
      Can you get out today, go for a surf, go for a bush walk, go out for a coffee with a friend just for some connection?
      Stay strong @tim[Read more]

    • Aw, Tim! Good on you staying away from the media. The psychs here told us to not watch happenings such as this over and over because we get retraumatized everytime and never get to move on to healing. Hugs to you and all my NZ friends!

    • Yes @Tim I am struggling deeply with it too. One nice thing was yesterday in Tauranga when my friend @normaleelucid was taking me back to the airport we passed a mosque and there were people there milling about, some praying, some bringing flowers, some muslem, some not, all there together, far away from Christchurch, feeling it, connecting,…[Read more]

    • Hi Tim. It is sad your beautiful city is suffering once again. Our safe little haven NZ has been violated. Well done on remaining sober and using your knowledge to keep safe. Sending my compassion to you Tim.

    • Mornin’ @tim. Great to see you’re still flying 🙂 Lean into God as we grieve, m’friend.

    • Good job mate keep it up. feeling for all the people in Christchurch you’ve all had a rough few years.

      Hi Tim! So very nice to see you in all your sober glory today! Peace.

    • Great job Tim! Love your little diddies!

      Wow 82 days. That’s beautiful @tim.

    • Yay to increasing mental wellbeing. 🙂

    • Hey so glad to see you are doing well! Miss your posts full of positivty! Keep it up ❤️

    • DaveH replied 1 week ago

      Hi @Tim You’re onto it. “mentally healthier”… that’s the goal isn’t it. The days counter is an interesting thing, but it doesn’t show what really matters. The aim of recovery is mental wellness. The counter doesn’t measure wellness, it measures sobriety.
      It’s uplifting to see your message every morning; thank you.

    Hello all
    Sober 71 days
    Been a lot overwhelmed lately
    NOT GOING TO DRINK OR DRUG
    Letting my emotions go im not in control
    Ive jst lately realized im addicted to selfpity and afraid to be happy a lot of the time.
    Seems crazy but is true
    There seems to be a safe place in being blue
    Learning to hand it over to god
    God actually wants me to be joyous…[Read more]

    Hello
    Hows it going
    Try to be strong today!
    The sun is rising down the beach
    A beautiful orange yellow
    Over a green blue ocean
    With amazing mysterys
    Unfolding in the light
    The driftwood sits on the shore line
    In the shadows of day and night
    Footprints on the sand leading
    To a better way
    Raised arms to the sky
    And i say hallelujah SOBER…[Read more]

    • Definitely try the keto way of eating. I have barely touched sugar for 29 weeks and not craved anything much. Great food, never hungry.
      It is known to really help with mood too, many on the NZ keto FB site saying they don’t need their depression or anxiety meds any more. Amazing healing occurs for so many years health issues. Check it out 🙂

      Yes! Challenge your thoughts: It’s not about you, it’s about them. Maybe they’re having a bad day. Wow, it must be hard to be them. They just don’t understand how that hurt. Etc. Etc.
      It may be easier to challenge your thoughts if you understand your underlying schema. A schema is the primary theme that underlies your negative thoughts…[Read more]

      • Loved your advice and explanation of schemas and how they affect our thoughts, Frog! Either you are in the business of therapy or you have a damn good therapist. =) To put in my 2 cents @tim, I also like to think of them as “the stories we well ourselves”. For example, what are the stories I tell myself about why I’m never supposed to feel…[Read more]

    • Yeah, another perspective is when. People say hurtful things it’s often a reflection on them and their own issues which are being deflected on to you. Try to put the mean comment in an imaginary balloon @tim and imagine letting it go as it flys away ! ❤️❤️❤️

    • Krisb replied 1 month ago

      Can totally relate @tim, working on the same. I love all the advice above, letting the thoughts go is a work in progress. You are a rockstar 59 days!!!!

    • Wow Tim! Super awesome job.
