Also, happy birthday again.

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

So it was our summer concert today, with all of the setting up, tuning, waiting around, buffet afterwards - I was out from 2:20 until 8:20
I'm drained
it really was a lovely day, though.

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

Been working on a lot.
Lots of positives in my life.
Some negatives.

Making friends and getting out to do community events.
Taking group/therapy serious
Giving CBT an honest effort
Working towards meaningful employment
Asking for help from others

...Not cleaning laundry like I should
Continual struggle with apartment
Being addicted to my computer
Not getting a whole lot done
Horrible sleeping issues again
Being selfish and focusing on myself lately

I'm making a ton of progress though. I can feel an adult in me emerging...and I've felt him before over the years, but it's like he's right there. And damn I like him! He's strong and charming. Intelligent and humble. A leader. Empathetic. Strong. Brave...
I'm a good guy. I'm strong enough to handle more in life. He can be pushed.

Yet I'm just waiting. Waiting for the fall. Like...I can't possibly keep making strides in life. Right? I always trip myself up at some point and crash. It's gotta happen here shortly again. No?

We'll see.

I do know that I've got more support here in the 3d real world than I've had in a great while.
I just need to remain focused.
First thing I really need to focus on for now...as in this next week or 2...is getting my sleep back in control.

I can change guys. I can step out of that pattern I'm in of always falling down...never letting myself really be successful in life.
I'm done some horrible things in my past...and that stuff drags me down hard...but dang it. I was a kid when I went through that stuff. Not that it makes it alright...just that I was so young and confused and out of control.
Holy heck how I've grown since then. I'm a completely different person now. And I love a lot of the parts I've become...a lot of the parts I can be.

I think over these next months I'll be moving ever closer to letting myself love myself again. Letting myself move on from my past. Not to forget it, but to accept that it was done, but that I deserve self forgiveness and that it's okay for me to love the person I am now.

Sorry for the sappy/odd post.
I think I'm just about ready to move on.

And yet...I'm scared I could crash and crumble at any moment.
It's what I've always done.

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

i leave residential treatment tomorrow morning to start IOP and then i get to go home and play with my girl all afternoon and, finally FINALLY!!! sleep in my own bed. i'll be discharged from here tomorrow and then hop on muni to IOP.

i'm pretty excited but also nervous. i'm afraid i won't have a proper affect, i'm afraid that i will have too much stress and the voices and intrusive thoughts will return. i'm afraid i'll have command hallucinations again and end up in hospital again.

deep breaths... i need to practice my 321's and just be ready to be flexible. which is often not so hard for me, but right now, i feel so fragile in a way...shattered and *just* barely patched up...

Hoping that IOP leaves you feeling stronger and more flexible ...

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

TV sizes have gotten ridiculous.

My daughter's boyfriend just bought her and her daughter a new one.
She wanted to watch movies at home instead of going to a theater.

This thing is bigger than a twin bed!
