You can do the same thing with Lvg nghtmare, just be logged out first, click on her name on the top of one of her posts then click on her "about me" page? Give it a shot, you'll figure it out if you do it right? Then you'll see what Che was talking about? Hope to hear from you soon? God bless us all!
    I see Lvg just posted to you as well, follow my instructions and you'll see what she means? Remember to log off first or you can't see the "about me" page information? Take care... God bless us all!

    Haven't updated the old thread much lately...not sure what that's about.

    But I have been having some...not cravings per se - but I guess thoughts of relapsing? Like of "life is so damn f'd, I give up" type thoughts lately. Which I guess relapse idea is better than all the suicidal thoughts I was having for a really long time. Those were pretty dark...

    Gonna try to take a mental health day today I think and try to go easy on myself. Been feeling pretty lousy and beating myself up and losing motivation. Hope everyone else is doing better.
    Hey there well I'm pretty sure this is just all normal Leo. The beating yourself up part anyhow we as Addicts are great at self-loathing never feeling good enough never doing enough low self worth blame shame guilt ughh just awful... They told me I need to change my thinking me to my friend I try and when I say try we need to put action to it... That's so easy to type it out but follow it up with action sometimes I struggle still... So now the hard part for me because I truly care about you and for several years skirted around the s word in fear of saying the wrong thing to you and you especially my dear friend you have been here for me from the day I signed onto this forum I'm so grateful for you... Relapse or Suicide both of those thoughts sound pretty dark to me... Play that tape all the way through... What are you doing differently when you start to feel lousy and have no motivation?? Stop beating yourself up you are not a victim... You are worth it You are special You are loved... I love you UncleLeo... You can do this We can do this...

    Yep we got it!! Hah. Happy Saturday peeps... to all the already "recovered" and all those working into their recovery, enjoy your Saturday.

    I've slowly come to terms with what recovery means for me...and it's not really what I thought it would be. This will probably sound stupidly obvious to most people, but it somehow wasn't to me - the taper really never ends. There is no there there. No pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. And that's ok. Acceptance.

    So where ever you find yourself on your own personal journey when you read this - enjoy this weekend as it is. Be kind to yourself. Take as many good and long screen breaks as you're able. Find some nature or connection to humans or animals or even plants...it will all help with the healing and enjoyment of the journey...

    Good morning fam... I'm doing so-so I guess. Hit a couple bumps along Thanksgiving and kinda knocked me down a bit.

    Weird how your motivation and energy can plummet so easily sometimes. Hit one of my "can't get out of bed" few days after doing so good for a stretch. Was doin so good with going to Crossfit every day and trying to do my work...then boom.

    Anyway - it's absolutely POURING rain here...which is never does so the roads are all a total mess out there. Guess I'll work from home today...sigh.

    Haven't heard from my brother lately, think he fell into his own pit of despair where he withdraws. Didn't realize how much I counted on my contact with him. On the bright side...my mom has been relatively calm.

    Work is kinda slow...I should really work on that more...

    Hey Uncleleo
    Just dropping in to say Hey. Glad ur going to gym. What about Spain? Lol. Get out of your usual space. It helps. The holidays are always challenging whether one is tapering or not! My 16-year-old dog just died. Sad. But my husband retires in 2 weeks and moves down here. I won’t b alone for a change. A big change! Keep your spirits up. Travel if u can. I highly recommend it! Lol. Love to all of you here!

    Merry Christmas everyone... wow. Can't quite believe it's Christmas.

    We've all come so far...and still so much more to go. Was thinking about everyone this morning and missing my fam here so much and our common cause... lyfe used to seem so straightforward. Now it's anything but...

    Hanging in there and miss everyone tons. Keep pushing...

    Happy day after Christmas everyone. Happy it is the day after tbh.

    Trying to rally myself to go to Yosemite I think but gotta get some new tires on the old car...at least I'm not afraid of the gas station anymore (except maybe sometimes). Does that still happen to people around here? Board seems quiet to me...

They have diff strains to address diverse ailments. I got the gut fixer lol! And it doesn’t get u high so there’s that benefit. Pain abated. Mind unsedated. Win win! Love you guys...

    Mingy and fam! Good to hear from everyone... have tried the CBD for sleep etc...has been a bit hit/miss for me. But does seem somewhat helpful.

    Recently went off my SSRI and much to my surprise actually feel much better OFF it than I did on it...go figure. Definitely noticeable difference. Lyfe is ok. Not in any real pain these days. Work is meh...as usual. So I kinda have nothing exciting to report...will try to post more...have struggled to lately.

    Uncleleo!
    Nothing exciting sounds pretty damn good to me lol! You sound good. This cbd oil is helping my gut a lot. I’m happy about that. Also taking probiotics. It’s been over 3 years since i got off subs. God! What a mess we were lol!
    My husband retired and is now here all the time. Haha. It’s a big change! Many of my friends are passing due to age-related challenges. Live it while you’re alive! Any trips on your agenda? Spain?
