"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"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'.

Q. Is it really possible to heal NPD?

Had a good talk with my tennis coach about our struggles with life. He goes through many of the things that we on this board think and talk about all of the time. Great guy.

Anyway, thank God for break again. Time for watching lots of old movies and shopping all over the place and inviting old friends over.

Did loads of laundry. Played with son. Read him stories. Let him help me make Kool Aid. Made two loaves of banana bread and gave one to a neighbor-- the surprise and delight on her face was really great! Ate healthy, low cal, delicious food--except for the banana bread-- cooking makes it easy. Was bullied on the phone by someone and refused to accept it. Fixed the toilet. After the past few days, it feels weird to have a normal good day. I think I'll sleep well tonight.

One more piece of good news. The convent we're staying at for my trip with my husband and son doesn't accept children, so he's getting a hotel room, and I'm going to suggest we take turns with our son at the hotel. I feel more relaxed about going because this provides more structure. And I just love staying at convents, usually so quiet and serene... Can't wait to see my friends! (Two of them were the ones who came for my slumber party.)

I'm just so thankful for a rest in the school day to school day grind that has been going on the past three months. Back to bed for me.

As per usual this place is dern quiet on Sunday. I've caught my son's bug, which is no surprise. But I am just going to keep chugging on through one step at a time. Not falling prey to the usual negative coping mechanisms-- I'm eating a bit too much at about one meal every other day, and really watching the intake other times. Not sleeping too much. Feel fatigued, but that may be the cold. Can't wait until son gets healthy and I'm able to go to the gym again. Reading poetry and listening to music. Trying to decide if I should be a writer (if I'm able) or a minister. The usual. Think I'll keep trying the former and be grateful to have a Plan B that I'm so comfortable with and which is so fulfilling. Before this situation with my husband, I thought being pulled in these two directions was a curse. Now I realize I'm really lucky to both have a big dream and have a real life fall back that is still pretty cool work.

Hi all, hope everything is going well for everyone. I'm talking to you from a campground somewhere along the Clearwater River, about 150 miles southwest of Moscow. I'll be making the long drive back to the insanity of the real world. I found out late Friday afternoon that I got the job that I've been interviewing for repeatedly over the last couple of months. I'm excited but I'm also nervous. I haven't told my old employers that I've been interviewing and I have a long history of not handling this kind of transaction very well. We shall see how this works out.

I feel much more at peace with myself this afternoon. I just got out and went for a drive yesterday without really knowing for sure where the heck I was headed. I have been focused on what I feel right now instead of what's in the past and what might be in the future. Its the best I've felt since I started learning to allow myself to feel anything. I have some excitment within me. Call it anticipation, call it pure nerves, but I'm excited.

I survived my first ever inspection of my apartment on Saturday night when I had my parents to diner. It was strange to have a place of mine that was not really there's. I made homemade pizza and everyone seemed to like it. I guess I passed inspection because they hinted they'd like to come back. I'll worry about that later because I'm still shaking from visit number one.:crazy:

I got a DVD of classic Tom and Jerry cartoons from the 40's and 50's. It's just the kind of silly humor that I need right now on an otherwise boring day. I'm gonna go back to watch some more episodes.

I just found out that I've been accepted to do a radio program that will be heard here in Northern Idaho and Eastern Washington. Eventually the program will be heard over the net but that'll probably be sometime late in the summer before that starts. The rogram is based on mental illness, healing, addressing the common mispreceptions of mental illness and other stuff. Naturally it'll have a special focus on NPD and personality disorders because that's kind of my main thing. This is a volunteer position on a new alternative community station that is starting next month and I'm psyched. This is a chance to get the word of healing out and might help us in the effort for real life support groups. :claphands:

It has been a while since I last checked in. Its a long story why, so for now just join me in celebrating over two months with no contact from the w***e who has been stalking me. :cookiemonster:

I got a new tennis glove that will hopefully stop the blisters that hurt while I'm playing. It's a "half-glove" with open fingers that fits so tightly that it takes me about a minute just to get it off.

I'm coaching in about an hour, so I'll try it out.

Take care,

Matt
