"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

I've also been in a funk of sorts, but I feel better this morning because I made a decision to place my family ahead of work and have decided not to apply for this admin post full time. I feel relieved. No doubt in my mind this is the right decision for me. :biggrin:

I got another A in abnormal psych. I'd say my personal life might be considered cheating as I've lived through so much of what we're talking about if it weren't for the fact everyone in my class feels that way. There you have it folks. The future mental health and social workers of America. :newtonguesmile:

Its 2:45 PM and I'm awake and for the most part alert. I need a calender to mark these special days. I feel like a real person. Only problem is I don't have much more of an idea what to do in the daytime than I do the middle of the night. I'm looking forward to my session. Maybe my T person can shed light on what to do as a normal person. People warned me Zoloft would make me sleep less but so far it seems to be helping me sleep. Another positive. Its rare when i have this much good news in one day.

I actually felt a little good about myself today. Just randomly. It's amazing, and unfortunately very rare. Because of course the evil voices then proceeded to tell me how bad I was... but what do they know?!!

Hmm... Valentine's Day is coming. We all should be thinking about this...

I decided to take a cue from others here and do something nice to myself. My back has been giving me fits so I finally went to a Chiropracter. He twisted my spine and made it snap, crackle and pop. Its early yet but I think it feels a little better. Now maybe I won't be so groutchy?

Hi everyone - I'm back!! I wish I had been at the beach but unfortunately I have been stuck at home with a tantruming 15 year old, getting depressed and wishing it would all stop. I have been reading the posts, just have not had anything very positive to post about (I'll tell you more in another thread).

Anyway, I have decided not to let things with my son depress me. Although, at the moment, he is blaming me for everything, there are still some major positives happening for him - he is going to school, he has a part-time job, he has taken up a sport and he has stopped smoking dope.

I look back a year to when he was living with his dad and he wasn't going to school, he didn't have a job, he wasn't doing any sport - he was just sitting around all day, every day getting stoned. So, if he has to blame me for stuff to give himself the space to move on with his life, then I guess I'll have to be big enough and strong enough to take it until he can recognise what he is doing.

I've been reading your other post Balbrenny and it definitely does not sound like a day at the beach. It sounds as though you're handling this as well as anyone could expect.

Congrats on the exam results, bikerboy. I'm all to familiar with the various disorders in the mental health field. :rolleyes:

All this recent talk of relationships and dating inspired me to call the friend I watched a few football games with. We might get together this weekend and watch hockey. A nice romantic Valentine's Dinner complete with people smashing each other into the boards. Sounds perfect to me.

I don't have a huge positive to post today. Just that I feel good inside. My horoscope is predicting a frustruating day, but I'm going to be able to handle it!

I hope everyone has a good weekend! Glad you've got an unbelievably romantic weekend planned TC... Tee Hee.

My tailbone continues to mend. Its at a point where its not too painful most of the time. Thus I've been around here more which I'm sure thrills everyone! :biggrin: The most positive thing I have to say is that I intend to spend Valentines alone. Its been almost a year since all hell broke with my last ugly relationship. That's the longest I've ever gone between one "serious" relationship to the next. I've flirted some but its been fairly calm, kind of strange. Maybe this is a time to reflect about where I want to be this time next year.

Zachery, glad your tailbone feels better. Mel, glad you feel good. TC, there's not much in life more exciting than hockey. I've only been to one game, but wow!-- it's enough to make anyone say, "Who needs love when I can watch this!" Well, almost, anyway...

After my pity party yesterday thought I should post a couple postives. My son is sick, which is allowing us to stay home and really focus on the potty. And he went for me for the first time in ages!!! Which was a relief because he had been holding it for three hours and I thought I was going to have to clean up Lake Michigan. And I called my brother and heard my little nephew crying in the background, and all I felt was love. Still think I'm a failure, but so what? Anything could happen... Learning to have a life opens a lot of doors.
