I'm drinking a martini right now.
at home. Lots of wine. College hockey on TV. No wife tonight.
I've managed to stave off a complete and utter mental collapse.
I am happy to hear that, although I'm not happy that it was apparently a close call.
A bit of both I suppose. Visiting relatives in Ireland, where I've never been before. A little bit of meeting people and getting into adventures may be on the list.
Edit: wrong thread >_>
OT: got laid!
For the first time?
Getting back to my Christmas sewing. Got all pattern pieces, ruffle pieces, elastic and fold over elastic cut last night to make 3 doll size nightgowns this morning, it's going to be a great day!

Its something that I have to constantly ward off at the moment. Nothing like having the bounds of your mental stability tested on a bi-weekly basis.
Knowing that you need to fight is half the battle sometimes. It's when you realise that you haven't been fighting it that things get really interesting. Stay strong!
About 25 years ago a family friend, who is a psychiatric nurse, told me something that I think is very true. He said "you are in charge of your own mental health". That doesn't mean that you shouldn't avail yourself of pharmacological or professional help, but if you need help you have to ask for it. It sounds to me like you need help, but only you can make that determination and only you can act on it.
All the best....
It is. And sometimes, when you don't yet realize that things have gotten bad, its almost too late to climb back out of the hole. Its amazing how subversive it can be.
Well, what I really need is to get away from the cause of my mental stress issues. Sadly, that won't be the case for another month. So I have to be on guard until then. When I'm away from this things aren't a problem.
