Hi Everyone Haven’t written in a long time

Hello my Christian friends,

Wanted to touch base with everyone and say I’m doing okay.  I’ve started a new at home business that I would like to share.  I would appreciate any support and encourage anyone who can help by re-posting to others in your list.  I also start a new job at the Outback Steakhouse on Thursday.  I have been unemployed for 3 weeks and times are tough.  But God blesses me and knows my needs.  It makes me cry sometimes how grateful I am to the Lord.

Thanks everyone and God Bless You!

Michele

Feeling Better

i feel better now

I just wanted to thank all of you for support and encouragement from my last post.  I am feeling much better and my thoughts have straightened out quite a bit.  The ground is not so shaky and I am seeing things in a better light.  A special thanks for those who commented:  Robert, Ulpal, Debbie, Jodi Lea, Noel and Laura.  You’re helpful insight and sober tools were a tremendous help.  Just knowing people care makes a big difference!  The world of blogging is truly amazing.  It never ceases to amaze me how people I have never met will reach out and give encouragement to a stranger.  There is still alot of love in this world and even though our world is in a fallen state, the love from people surely overcomes all evil.

I do realize I am not out of the woods yet and have to continue to be actively pursuing recovery on a daily basis.  Staying sober for me cannot be done without God and others like you.  It’s important that I keep my heart right with the Lord and stay in constant contact with Him.  Thank goodness for the Holy Spirit interjecting on my behalf when I am not able to pray.  It’s not that I am not able to pray, it’s more like I don’t always have the words to say what I need to say.  I especially find this to be true when I am in a darkened state of mind.  It’s like a barrier to prayer.

I am sure some of the people who read my blog may not have God as their Higher Power.  This is what works for me and I have tried many ways to remain sober in the past without God.  It never lasted.  I’m not quite sure how other people do it without God but I am sure there are many.  Although, I wonder how they get any peace and joy from not having God in their life.  But I will not judge your sobriety ways and ask you to not judge mine.  Do what works to remain sober.  Not everyone follows the same way and we all have to find what works.

So I have a very busy work week ahead of me and it starts in a couple hours so I better get ready for work.  Thanks again to all my friends who read this and may God bless all of us with peace and sober days this week.

Ideation…

Many of us who suffer from addictions may also suffer from some form of mental illness. In my case, it is depression and extreme anxiety. I have met so many people through rehab centers and outpatient treatment centers who suffer from either Bipolar Disorder, Turrettes Syndrome and Schizophrenia. This is a post I found that gives you a good example of what a person with auditory hallucinations may hear. Also referred to as “hearing voices”.

Tell me what you think after listening to it.

We all view the world differently, it’s unique to each of us.. how would the world differ to those effected by mental health? How would someone with Schizophrenia view the world, paranoia, fear, depression would all change a person’s perception.

Sanity would be questioned, nightmare or reality?

This video is supposed to portray the world of a Schizophrenic.
