This blog is part of my recovery, and I would like it to remain a safe place for me to share parts of myself and my life that people close to me may or may not know. As a result, while I'm not going crazy with privacy settings, I do ask that if you find this on your own and suspect you may know me, please respect my privacy by checking with us before reading any further. This obviously doesn't apply if one of us has given you the link!

Sanguine Sunday Morning

I think it's safe to say that this week I am, emotionally, not doing very well. On the other hand, part of the reason for doing so shockingly is actually a positive thing -- I've stopped drinking again.

I apologise for the lack of SS linkage this week, by the way. I've hurt my right arm and in a remarkable display of bad timing, my laptop decided to die a colourless (and very frustrating) death. My brother has lent me his little netbook for now, but of course, it lacks all my bookmarks etc (but I'm not complaining - somebody else's little netbook is a billion times better than no access to a computer at all!).

Success Stories:
I've not had a drink since Tuesday.
I've continued practicing eating on cam (for what little of the week I've had access to one!).

Gratitudes/Happy Things:
My brother's generosity
My friends are amazing and wonderful
I have the best best friend ever

Challenge and cheer-leading statements:
Recovery is a rose. Not getting it perfect isn't the same as failing.
Yes, this is scary, but I can do this!
What other people say or think about me doesn't change who I am.

Take care of yourselves until next time, and may we all find our own small fences along the way.


  1. Good for you!! Well done! Always listening xx

  2. Sorry to hear you're not feeling great and that your arm is bothering you. Congrats on not drinking! That's HUGE! :)
