What you said about wanting someone else to be your mother? I was the same way. My mother knew it too, and would accuse me of it! Odd, I hadn't thought of that for a while.

I never wanted anyone else to be my daddy.

Do keep posting thru the week.

THANKS for coming and MJ missed you.

Hi Everyone! Sorry I missed the study tonight. I repainted my kitchen cupboards all day and must admit that I am really pleased with the outcome. It was theraputic for me to do this. I enjoy having a nice home and this helped me to improve my home in a small way. Thanks for everyone's shares on the chapter. I really enjoyed reading all that you are doing to work on your recovery.

Today was such a good day. My hubby is being so much more loving and playful and kind. I know that recovery works. I know reading and examing our own actions help us to implement the changes we need in our lives to be able to enjoy life more thoroughly. A few days ago, I felt hopeless. Today, I feel hopeful. I was reading how codependents do the extremes. I do. I want to learn moderation. I want to learn how to be respectful of others and mostly how to be respectful of myself. I feel that I am making progress and that is so important. Love to All and keep up the good work, we are Worth IT!!

I missed it too. Sorry guys. Hopefully by next week I will have some kind of internet at my house. Right now, I rely on friends to get on their computers, and 10:30 is late to get on a computer when I should get the kids at home and in bed by 9:00 at the latest.

Today is the day that my husband is leaving. It is going to be very interesting what happens with me and the kids. I am looking forward to the changes that we are going to make. A little nervous, yes, but I think that the absence will help boost my recovery.

Have a great day. Looking forward to reading more comments about chapter 6.

Thanks GG. So far so good. Husband tried to play the guilt thing this morning saying I was giving him no choice but to leave.

I just looked him in the eye, said "You always have a choice." Turned around and left the house.

I don't know if that is being strong or running away from the problem, but it will have to do for now.

Hey MJ--

Sorry that it took me so long to get back to you.

I basically hibernated all weekend. It was great spending time with my kids and that is all. They really are something special.

So far, so good. I am looking forward to making more changes.

I did watch most of the grammys. They were pretty good, weren't they???? I love watching all of the older artists strutting their stuff out there. It shows the younger artists what they have to compete with (and judging from some of the newer artists, they have a lot of work to do.)

Have a great day. We are expecting a foot of snow over the next two days, so I hope to find a computer somewhere so that I can keep in touch.

Here's to no school for me!!!!! Yeah! I deserve a break.

Soprano, sounds deep. The snow and changes. Glad you get a break. What did you think of the skeleton rap with pyroglythics? I thought is was creative.

So how are you really doing my friend? You have so much stuff happening. Do you feel balanced in it all?

MJ:

So kind of you. Yes, I just might take you up on that. I go to see a specialist on the 20th. It's bad enough my left hand doesn't want to work, but now my right of my neck and my shoulder are in constant spasm and the pain meds aren't doin much for it. Give me a prayer please that the specialist can do something. I'm trying to not get my hopes up. I thank you and will most definitely keep you in mind. I think Kroika or S2 had offered also. I do appreciate ya'll. 🙂

MamaC

Do you take Cymbalta? I'm not sure that is the correct spelling. I talked to the friend that has fibromyalgia just yesterday. She was telling me that if not for the cymbalta, she wouldn't ever be able to rest.

I hope the doc can help a little. You know me- no praying, but I will keep you in my positive thoughts.

Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts. No cymbalta. But I'm on 14 scripts total and 5 are for pain. I cannot wait to see the new doc.

How am I really doing? That's a tough question.

At times I am happy. At times I am overwhelmed. At times I am sad. At times I am angry.

All I can say is that I am going to do my best because I deserve it. I am quickly learning to ask for help (which is very hard for me to do usually). But this is good for me to work on.

I just take things day by day. And my friends here (like you) are helping tremendously.

No one ever said that change was easy, but sometimes change is necessary. And don't forget, when it is all done--even welcomed (which is what I am aiming for)

mama--
hope that you are feeling better. That's lots of stuff you take. When do you get to see the new doc? I will say some prayers for you.

S2,

I am sorry you are going through all those emotions...must be tough...

How old are you kids, if you don't mind me asking?

I have a boy who is 4 and a girl who is 3. They are "Irish twins", which means my girl will be four before my boy is 5. Was very rough the first couple of years, but they truly love each other, and they don't know any different.

I am sure the closeness in age will get on their nerves. The way their birthdays fall, they will start kindergarten the same year.

The funny thing about my husband leaving is that they haven't even mentioned him. They have not asked for him or even realized that he is gone.

That certainly tells me volumes about my situation.
