I just wanted to give my new family a positive update about my current situation or mental state....WOW.WOW. I feel top of the world! I'm not sure what it was or is exactly..maybe the fact I have been sober 7 days and I havn't had a sober day in almost over a year.
I have changed my diet to salad and veg. Multivitamins and detox.
As u know I have been struggling with bulemia and that is coming under control now with the new foods and new positive attitude. The upped dose of lexapro 2 weeks ago could also be helping me. I am facing my bad financial state head on and taking charge of my life...I cant get enough of my children now...They never leave my side and I get out and about now. My family is still away so I am so proud of myself right now for doing this without there support ...It is with the help of u guys!
There was a question earlier in the week about your proudest moment and i couldn't answer and it really got me down because I for the life of me couldnt think of one...Well, This is it.. My proudest moment is now.. I am doing everything I can to take charge of my life and stop procrastinating and start enjoying it!   Thankyou my new friends you have helped me through my detox and I hope I can keep this new way of thinking and positive outlook!  I know I will have hard days to come but...I know where to come to get support...I will be here for you too. Thankyou!  Gillxx

P.s I am in Australia and it is 10pm here not 4.39am like it shows...Please keep that in mind and dont look at me like a freak on the net at these hours...although I have been guilty of it in the past.  haha!

this being human is a guest house.
every morning a new arrival-a joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awarenewss comes as an unexpected visitor.
welcome and entertain them all!
even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture,still, treat each guest honorably
he may be clearing you out for some new delight.
