    Day 28…

    Well, almost a month. I'm sick right now. I have a really sore throat, swollen glands and chest pain. I feel like shit. The guy I'm seeing is sick too. Sucks. I haven't been sick in a long time. I don't even know what medicine to use. None of it works so I just have to lay low for awhile. I'm just watching Breaking Bad re-runs.

    Anyways, nothing really new to report. I've been doing ok. Just stressed. Hope everyone else is doing ok. Cravings have been manageable. Anxiety is manageable. So far, ok. I just have to keep moving forward. I will write more when I'm feeling better.

    Get well soon.

    This is the time of the year when people are sick - and my first Flu after active Heroin addiction felt like the worst ever - altho I was on maintenance dose of 'done.

    "Manageable" is a good word, btw.
    I found when I classified something as 'manageable' it had lost much of it's negative appeal.
    When 'manageable' becomes the default attitude there is still room upwards for having a lifted mood - without much more effort than the will to see and grab the little beauties of life.

    I just had a rant to a friend oin a social media platform about how my cheque hasnt arrived yet and my new year seems in danger - I got answered back that if there is anything she can do I should come over.

    Thats how it goes from "manageable" to "put a smile on our faces".

    Again, get well soon.

    Sorry to hear you are sick. I hate being sick! Your body is still healing so your immunity is down. Rest!!

    I posted some suggestions for managing anxiety on my thread. I hope they might help you. Love to you!

    Sniff, sniff...tissue to the trashbag. "A-choo!" Ick, yuck, this sucks!

    Sorry you're under the weather, Mel. Day Quil (or a branch pharmacy copy) works well on most cold or flu symptoms. Might want to give it a try. So proud of your progress, and your sticktoativeness ( a word a learned in 6th grade ;)). Honey is great for the throat, and it tastes good!

    Hope you're feeling better soon.

    Don't forget the Jewish penicillin- Chicken soup! Surprising that studies show that it really does help.
