    Good Morning.

    Now that is truly a lovely picture. It makes me feel serene.

    I’m not sure I’d want Cuomo back, but I really can’t stand this woman!

    I need to admit aloud. I went to two detox. A guy was speaking to me about aftercare. He lost his way in discussion because he said I was too attractive. I have never touched or been touched. Not one time. I had the usual open heart surgeries, gayness, broken bones, urinated upon. You dust yourself off and stay silent. I cant handle the thought of anyone caring about me. I always needed to be strong. That was what they said when you get bifurcated. Be strong. I am now 55 tomorrow I am so tired. I dont want to drink myself to death but I have no clue how to live.
    Rehab again? Ithink I am too tired

      Doesn’t sound like you need rehab as much as perhaps counseling to deal with underlying issues. Therapy can be expensive, so there’s that. I know nothing about AA, but aren’t their meetings like support groups? Wouldn’t that be good for you? Don’t they usually have therapists connected with them?

      That my pillow guy has the Lindell recovery network, which is totally free. Again, I know nothing about it except the interviews I’ve seen it seems to be religious based.

      Rehab is to get you sober, you’re already sober and seem to want to stay that way. I just think you have lingering issues you need to deal with. You’re about to turn 55, find a way to put the demons of your past to rest. I don’t know a lot about alcoholism, but one thing I do know for a fact. You’ll never drink those demons away, you might escape them momentarily, but they’re still there when you sober up AND drinking brings a whole new set of problems.

      So happy early birthday 🎂. Give yourself a birthday gift and resolve to deal with the issues that drive you to drink in the first place. It won’t be easy, in many ways it will be tougher than rehab and getting sober, but it will be far more satisfying. So tomorrow sign up for AARP😉, then set yourself on a path to full recovery, after all tomorrow truly is the first day of the rest of your life. It’s a milestone birthday, so embrace that milestone.

      Also, tiny nudge, getting out for a walk might make you feel better.

      • swanspirit says:

        What I learned in recovery, and working in psychiatric care, is that in therapy, your therapist is there to help you, with unconditional positive regard. In recovery, in meetings, your brothers and sisters love you. The difference is palpable.
        However, there is to be no 13th stepping, in recovery, which is hitting on a vulnerable person in their first year of recovery. And of course there is absolutely no inappropriate relationship between therapist and client. Anyone hitting on you, is not helping you.

        There is nothing keeping you from getting counseling, and going to meetings. Whatever works. It’s your life on the.line.
        And as far as I know, dealing with “secrets” is pretty far down the road, and isn’t so much about secrets, as it is taking a look at your life, and it’s usually done with only one trustworthy person, like your sponsor. In AA, it’s not until the 5th step. And for what it’s worth, it isn’t unusual for smart people to do the steps intellectually, and rush through them, when in reality, they take much longer., because it is an experience.

      Buy yourself a nice journal and a comfortable pen for your birthday. Set a writing goal for yourself for everyday. “All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”. Next year on your birthday have a book ready to submit to a publisher. Send if off yourself. Don’t leave it around for your mother to find and send it off posthumously like John Kennedy Toole. Become famous and enjoy it yourself. Success is the best revenge.

      Mothy, a really out there suggestion – how about the Sacrament of Reconciliation (confession)?

    BREAKING: U.S. Not in Position to Evacuate Citizens From Ukraine, State Dept. Warns

    Ukraine is about to become Afghanistan 2.0 for Americans hoping to evacuate.

    Fox News Channel is reporting that the Biden Administration will not be able to evacuate U.S. citizens from Ukraine.

      Wheezy McWindedpants @drumtroll

      As long as @DOJ and @FBI fail to prosecute those in the Trump Administration, including the President, who were brazenly breaking laws openly in the public, it’s the *country* that’s lawless. That’s because it further encourages and emboldens them and their ilk to go further.

      It would have been better if he would have added, “Of course, they will be afforded all the due process and constitutional rights the J6 defendants have been afforded”.

      • lyn5 says:

        I agree. Would love to see Nancy rotting away in the DC gulag. The replies show how disconnected Democrat voters are to the fascism of their leaders.

    Anyway, nothing serves as a better barometer of how things are going in the struggle over the fate of this tortured land than Erin Burnett’s scowling puss. And where is this country going? I will tell you: straight into a dark passage of the profoundest political discord, an epochal nightmare of loss and death brought on, it begins to seem, deliberately, by the folks in charge. They are being found out, and the fact that they remain in charge spells ever more obvious danger among all concerned as the truth of their crimes emerges.

      Every time I read this stuff, it make me ill. What a shame that many of those charged have to settle for public defenders. And seeing how this is DC, those lawyers are probably part of the commie left. They really want to punish and destroy Brandon because of his successful Walk Away campaign. And reading the above, I guess they did destroy him.

      • lyn5 says:

        Meanwhile, Democrat violent white and black supremacists are free. A reckoning will be jusified.

        P.S. Your jar of huck jam is in at Jacksonville distribution center. Mailed it on the 11th.

          Julie Kelly 🇺🇸 @julie_kelly2

          Friedrich rehashing case. Says trespassing at the Capitol isn’t protected by 1A. “Deeply troubling” Straka used his social media platform to condone January 6.

          He undermined the “rule of law” by engaging in “storming the Capitol.” Notes letters, overcoming addiction, etc

    This morning I looked back at the 1/6/21 post to see our initial reaction to all that happened that day. We all posted lots of video from social media, and I noticed most of it is gone, wiped from the internet. I scrolled through and tried to look at many of the videos, many are gone because the person posting them was suspended. Some people are still on Twitter, but the videos are gone. Big Tech took care of the left. There are a few that still remain.

    I was catching up on some Gutfeld shows this morning, and if I haven’t said it before, I really like Larry Kudlow. He is one funny man, every time he appears on Greg’s shows.

    For real
    I will end someone if they fuck with my kid.
    Shay got skinny shamed. She can eat three pizzas and lose weight. Its dna. I dont put on pounds.
    Meghan and Destiny attacked her for being thin. Shay started wearing very baggy clothes. I didnt think much.
    I love my kid. She is the reason I try. No fat housewife gets to hurt my baby. I will bite out an esophogus abnd spit it in your face if you come at mine.
    It has been 15 years I have annoyed my Shaypup. She has been with me every day. I suck. She is in her room I yell babe. She yells back leave me alone but I yell babe everynight. We go through it every evening. I cant let her rot.

    • elliesmom says:

      Every high school has its “mean girls”, but it’s not all of the girls. When they get tired of being mean to other girls, or the other girls ignore them, they turn on each other. Learning how to choose and/or discard friends is part of a teenager’s learning experience. If these are Shay’s friends, then she’s in a nasty clique and has the choice to choose other friends. Or she can be this week’s verbal punching bag for them and hope they move onto someone else soon. There’s really nothing you can do because her “friends” have decided they’re jealous of her weight, or decide they don’t like the way she wears her hair, etc.

      I hope you let her know you expect her not to be one of the girls who participates in picking on the next “victim”. The mean girls turn into mean women more often than not. The best route would be for Shay to move into a different circle of friends sooner rather than later, but that’s her decision.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I don’t see Shay being mean. We have always had the door open. Miriam was born in Basra. She lived here for years. Shay was nurtured by a gay great uncle who now debates rehab. I dont think she has it in her to be cruel. I had to take a step back a few months ago. She pretended to cut. It was a bic. I have straight razors she didnt even break skin with a dollar store razor. I said I will try to hear better. She does everything well I forget/forgot she is a child. I had to get smacked in the face. I took her to ER she is sorta my kid. They said its all good. She is loved. I attempted to discuss with a doc lady. Borderline personality people cut is my baby in dispair. She basically told me to fuck off. Like really said kid is okay you have to relax

      • jadzia1971 says:

        We had a “mean girl” situation recently and I was HORRIFIED to discover that my 10-year-old was a participant. I am hoping that we’ve nipped it in the bud.

      • elliesmom says:

        I used to tell my 8th graders I’d scrape their faces off with a spatula. I never got called on the carpet for that one. Some parents objected to my poster that said, “I can cure ignorance, but there’s nothing I can do about stupidity”, but they backed off when the principal replied, “Of course, she can’t cure stupidity. It’s hereditary.”
