Been doing so well lately. It has been a couple of months of feeling really good. Had a good day today. Went to a Cinco de Mayo party and had a couple of margaritas. I got home and my mind started to go places where it ought not go. I was perseverating over a relationship gone bad. Lately, I have been able to replace these thoughts with a mantra but not tonight. I started to worry that this very brief depressive episode would snowball into something much bigger and that it would last a long time. I started thinking about all of the negatives and I was prepared to roll this snowball right into hell. Suddenly, I realized that it is okay to have a bad evening. I realized that one bad evening out of two months is really pretty damn good! So instead of of letting things snowball, I am going to make a snowman and enjoy the sunshine tomorrow. Bob

Hi Bob,

Someone once said that success lies in eliminating negatives and there is real truth in this saying.

I will try to remember that one, really inspirational. So true and yet we tend to think its the end of the world to have a bad day/evening/night. Thanks for sharing.

I know Rosie. I was a little off today too. I haven't hardly drank at all since Good Friday. I drank last night. The 2 times that I did drink, I became depressed the next day. Well, I guess I can solve that problem.

I am wishing you well Rosie, I have been reading your posts.

Bob

Ed,

I have been away from here for a bit. Thankfully, I have been busy with a new job. Sometimes I just smile although my heart is breaking. Just knowing someone is listening helps to make me happier (or less depressed). You will beat the beast's ass. I know you will. Love ya back - Bob
