    Searching to buy a Subaru Crosstrek - as I was watching this review on you tube, I noticed Pearl Jam is on the radio in the car they are reviewing! 2:26 min into video and again 7:48. It's a sign! Of course,  my husband thinks I am nuts

    I really like my job. It's data management, and I love it. I really like my co-workers.

    I'm still learning the ropes, and I'm putting in a lot of weekend and holiday hours to finish projects. I'm making too many mistakes to feel comfortable in my job. I'm getting very down. I really like this job, and I should be good at it. I'm kind of sad.

    Give yourself more time. You'll get better. Mistakes are learning opportunities. Sometimes we are our own toughest critics. You got this. :hug:

    That was really interesting - how the economic hardships have given birth to so many grassroot bands.  Looks like a really exciting scene!

    That lead singer for Night Stalker made me chuckle and the lead singer for Planet of Zeus (i think that's right) looks INTENSE. 

    Enjoy on your birthday & forward..  :rock_on:

    My goal is to be kind to myself in the new year but to also push my comfort zone in order to heal and get back into the game of life!

    I just realized earlier that I am cigarette free for one year and 6 months today. Never thought I'd do it. Now just hoping for mental and physical wellness. For myself and for others....

    I'll echo what Fifth said - DO (continue to) be kind to yourself, and excellent job on your 1-1/2 year marker of no smoking.  Letting go, and change...man, those two are tough nuts.  Hell, life is a tough nut.

    Damned nuts.

    Me, I'm gonna keep doing what I've been for the past few months...and, then some, hopefully.

    I have stopped making lists because they cause me extreme anxiety - and I'm agoraphobic right now. So this is a nut I have to crack in order to get to the meat of the nut. 

    Acknowledging that it's time to stop that damn negative cycle is hard enough, I'm going day by day and, no matter how insignificant the action might be to a well functioning person, I am considering it a step forward. We both are addressing major issues that we need to go through, not around, and it may seem slow but that's the only way to do it. Growth is painful. That's why we remember our struggles so well. 

    Wishing you the best @hedonist ; - you deserve a life of peace. 

    It's nice to know that there are people who care. Really, it means a lot. :smile:

    Amen, and amen!

    I may not ever be "normal", but am working on getting through this new normality.  Surprisingly, I'm handling life with no alcohol better than I am dealing with the physical / emotional repercussions, but...it must be done.

    Thank you :)

    My boss called me quiet today, but she isn't the first person at my job to remark about me being introverted. I didn't think my introversion was glaringly obvious, but there you go. As a result I disabled my Plenty of Fish app. I just started to use it, so it's not much of a loss. It doesn't seen like the right time, and my to-be-read pile is growing like mold :)

    Me, some days...shit's not all fucked up, but fucked up.

    For those who can relate :peace:

    . God bless Warren Zevon - for the short time we had him.

    My shit's fucked up. Some days I feel like I am this close to breaking free, some days (like today) I can't fathom being free of this all encompassing anxiety.

     If you can avoid PTSD - I recommend it highly.

    :peace: to you my friend - you are on the right path.

    1. Pearl Jam - Future Days (Fall Tour 2014)
    2. The Hula Girls - Mele Kalikimaka (the 2:07 and not the 1:30 video)
    Ooh, yeah! All right!
