I just wanted to say hi.
I'm sorry I don't check in much these days,
But I think growth is good, no matter what.
This place helped me SO MUCH IN THE EARLY DAYS.
I'll never forget that.
I'm just a different person now, and it's really hard to explain.
My perspective changes again, a year ago as my grandma died right before me. She didn't want to be alone,so she wasn't....
I just wanted to say howdy.
Things do get better.
It's ok to admit that you have issues, too.
My Dr and I, change it to me going to the pharmacy daily, its less than a mile from my house,,,
When I started giving my grandma, hospice meds.
Wasn't too long after that, and I couldn't help anyone with ANY amount of sub, obviously well my personal life, aka social life, quieted down a TON.
Today I have my mom and dad, my husband and best friend. My neighbors, and there's like two moms in my neighborhood I talk to, BBQ with.
Otherwise that's my entire circle. ...
It's funny how I used to think if I had a lot of friends, that means I'm a good person.
Yeah I know that's not true.
I hope everyone is doing well :!:
All my love
Amber

Hello old Mod friend,
I know i can speak for a few others here who would remember you in saying its great to here from you Amber.

Loved your post. You are so right about friends and the like. And change comes ready or not. So glad your family is in tact and life is good. I keeped up with ypur blog for a time and as is in life things can get bumpy. Your a fine example of how to hang on and fight for what you want and need.

Hope you fine the time to post more often. We will be here looking..

Hey Amber!

I totally get what u said about thinking if u had tons of friends it means ur a great and fun person to be around. I finally realized in recovery that I'm more concerned with true real ppl that's gonna help u in tough times expecting nothing in return. That's when u know a true friend. I'd rather have a couple true real friends than a bunch that really could care less if u come or go.

Welcome bk :)

I think less is better....
Definitely...
And I was very used to a lot more... Or maybe just one more, that took up a really big place in my life, and now it's just a big hole.
I'm learning to deal... For real, I am.
It's hard, painful,and intoxicating sometimes. Just depends on your perspective.

Hope everyone is having a good day :mrgreen:
