I want to thank everyone for their replies..This really is a great site..
Lots of recovery, which is what I need right now. LOTS!!!
My answer to ALT male question is that I do have a husband and he is very supportive..as a matter of fact we just went away for a few days recently..I'm not working right now, so I'm home a lot with my son..and my house is quite small..and my son can be very needy..I do try to get out and away as much as possible. As a matter of fact, I'm planning a trip to Conn. (where I'm originally from) to see my daughter & my brother and my new niece and nephew..I'm looking very forward to it. I'll be going alone..No Hubby, No Son, No Dog, No housework, just plain ol' fun with the girls. I know it probably sounds like I hate my Husband, son and dog..and that's very far from the truth, but as you said sometimes I just need to get away. By the way I do read and play on the computer a lot I write poetry and do graphic design, and make floral arrangements, ie: baskets,wreaths etc. so, I do have many outlets. I'm not thinking about drinking (which is new for me) actually I was just venting..The rest of the day went fine..
And of course my good friend Rusty..thank you again for your kind words..Your right. I do love my son very much, but sometimes it can be overwhelming. And you know about my physical problems as well as some physcological problems and the fact I don't work..all factors against me, but I do try to have gratitude for the fact that My H.P. has given me a second chance at life without that I wouldn't be doing any of this..Thanks Again buddy for setting me straight. Dallas thank you for the quotes from the B.B. What more can I say RIGHT ON!!
Pls. don't tell Rusty he's 100% right .. his heads big enough already..(sorry buddy couldn't resist) lol
Thanks God Bless You All!! Angel
