I just realized I'm at 40 days...wow...and did it with no drugs...even with that painful disease I have. Anyway, I came to a few conclusions while I was gone. I absolutely love being here...I love helping other people....I love the support I get. I have a lot on my plate however, between caretaking the hubby, trying to get myself healthy, working, taking care of 90% of all those things that HAVE to be done, cooking, shopping, bill paying, etc....well, I am a workaholic. If I am going to manage my disease I have to slow it down a bit and schedule out time to just relax, rest and make sure I'm doing everything I can to manage my addiction but also to manage my diverticulits.
Therefore, I won't be here quite as often as before. I'm going to limit myself to 2-3 times a week for coming here. I have to do this for my own health. Don't worry...you can't get rid of me that easily....and if I get an email from anyone needing me I will answer it if I'm on the computer.
I have seen so many people here go through hell and survive. You know who you are because we've chatted a lot. I'm not deserting you....contact me if you need to and I will do what I can for you. All of you though are getting closer to the point where I am. At some point we have to face our demons and deal with them in order to get completely healthy. I'm working on that now.
Anyway, I'll be around and yell at me if I start looking like I'm turning into that workaholic fiend again :-D
