"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'.

Last night I was so intent on avoiding going back to sleep that I actually spent time cleaning the bathroom. :shocked: Let's see the last time I cleaned the bathroom was, hmmm, well, I'm not sure there was a last time. So I guess this has to count as a positive. :cookiemonster:

Kudos, Drac.

Mel, I cannot imagine having kids your age in bed by 8:30. It must be nice. Bedtime brings back horror stories of which I'd really rather not reflect.

My big positive this week has been that my wife and I talked about the kids schedule for the fall without a major fight breaking out. I think we have something that will work for everyone. :knockonwood:

I'mmmmmmmm Baaaccccckkkkk. Did everybody miss me?

Maybe I should ask if anyone missed me? :bawling:

I had a FANTASTIC time on the river. Nobody mentioned NPD, school or anything else that stresses me out. Sometimes we just need to remember the world does not revolve around how f--ked up we are. Now back th mundane- school begins tomorrow. :sick:

That trips sounded fun Taran. Was it whitewater?? I love whitewater rafting!!

I've got 3 days more at home, and then away to college. There are so many positives and negatives about leaving. I'm gonna try and make it as positive as I can though.

I really like these guys!! (It's a sickness, I know)

I just gave blood. My positive is that I did something good for someone else.

I went to see another therapist near my home, and it went well, so now I have someone if I have to come back to NOVA.

We're getting very close to 1000 posts!

This sounds like my brother, Tony. Actually, I've been through this type of scenario many times with both friends and family members, including my mother and father . I'm practically an expert in drunk management. It's not unusual for this scenario to repeat itself several times before the message gets through. I have heard of people going into rehab/detox over 20 times before they finally get the message and get sober. Whatever it takes. It's good that his has someone who has faith in him and will stand by him through this, as I have heard from recovering addicts that people who stood by them were instrumental in their recovery, and they learned to be very grateful for them. Of course, you also have to know when to draw the line, since you don't want to enable him. Unfortunately, there are no "bkablack and white". simple answers here.

Message number 1000 has arrived !!! :Isaluteme: :claphands:

I've been feeling down for the last couple of days and I finally decided to talk to some people in real life rather than sulk in my misery. The amazing thing is that these people listened to what I had to say and didn't judge me or say I was evil because I was feeling fear and maybe a lot of depression. In fact they offered to be around if I need support in the near or in distance. Maybe this was making a human connection? It doesn't get much better than this.

I think I'll get a cape, or at least some wonder wmoan boots!

Third night in a row Supermom has gotten her boys off to bed before 8:30 and no big fights!
