    Re: Spring Army Manoeuvres - March 21

    Morning and waves to the world,

    I've woken up grumpy. Luckily Mr. JC's at work today........the proper one, not the back bedroom so he's escaped for the day.

    @mollyka..........I honestly don't know how we'd cope but we will. We have to..........we have to slap on a smile and we have to answer the phone with a cheery hellooooooooooo. Then go to a quiet place and cry.

    How's Joe? He must be frustrated to the tenth degree.

    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Afternoon all. We all hope that we won’t but whoever thought this time last year what we would be facing. However we will get through it. We don’t really have a choice. Here is another for you Brit.

    At work and just having my lunch. Will check back later.

    Evening
    I missed out a whole day yesterday - dunno how that happened.
    MsA Totally understand your wanting to be alone to process things first.

    I want to mention how upsetting I find the photo & video of dead horses. The video is particularly brutal - as they all stand around laughing while a jockey jumps on a dead horse :
    A dead 4 year old horse who gave her all to please them & died of a heart attack.
    I've always had an uneasy feeling about treatment of racehorses as money machines. Mr S gets the brunt of it every year.

    What really sickens me is the way the racing crowd make it out to be very glamorous - makes me sick.
    Cheltenham went ahead last year despite a bloody Pandemic - this year it will again - elite sport my ARSE.

    WELL the truth is out now - jockeys & trainers true feelings captured for all to see.

    Morning to you all,
    I won't dive into the incident with the horse. I get extremely upset and angry about such things for months at a time. Bad dreams, the lot.

    I'm thinking about you Mrs A/Brit Sending all the good stuff I can muster.

    The same to Joe and YS.
    If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

    Thanks @byebyebridgetjones
    YS is doing brilliantly and starting a new job tomorrow. This is tricky - a new job normally triggers a bender.
    Fingers crossed the therapy & online meetings with Lifeline (?) have done their work.

    I'm asking him to come here & stay if he gets urges - he doesn't associate being here & (S) mothered with drinking.
    Rosie is here & he loves her and she will always look for the comfy lap to sit on.

    WARNING : I'm sitting in the Truth Chair as I type.

    I won't hang around today. Increasingly I get the feeling I am talking to myself.
    Feedback is minimal. No interaction - for hours nothing.
    I feel that is why so many have stopped posting regularly.

    People reading & not responding makes me feel what is being said is of no interest to them.
    No-one these days is THAT busy that they have NOTHING to say?! (MsA is exempt from this )
    It 's frustrating and a pain in the arse if I'm honest.

    Like everything worthwhile it requires effort. The Army will die out soon.


    I am not trying to be confrontational - just stating facts.

    Re: Spring Army Manoeuvres - March 21

    Morning all,

    Satz I feel compelled to answer you I strongly agree. I did start typing this morning but deleted it as felt it was worthless words really and no more would be said for hours or more so...Yes I know we cannot go back to the vibrant thread of old but I miss it very much and can attribute my initial 7 years of sobriety to it. Having said that, my sobriety now is due to me and me alone but its sad in a way that that is the case as its important to feel part of something which I dont really any more. In fact I am not part of anything really including work. Now we are working from home I am much more isolated from everyone and being a part timer that is even more on the fringes. Its a dichotomy because although I quite like it in many ways, is it really healthy? Hmmmm

    In other news, I should be working but feeling bored with it all so pushed Lappy to side and had a look in here.

    Mary, should you get a test? I do hope its lifted today.

    Your holiday home looks lovely JC and Mikey will love it Im sure which is most important

    Oh the docs have contacted me for my vax next tuesday. Dilema

    Re: Spring Army Manoeuvres - March 21

    Not sure how to answer that Benjy..I have on numerous occasions asked questions that have been ignored..dunno whether it's lack of interest or disapproval that I'm being nosey ..so I don't bother much anymore...seems pointless..back in the day if there was a convo going on folks hung around for a while or excused themselves..now it indubitably is talking to oneself..sometimes for a whole day..I don't think the site is used as it used to be it's more like ticking a box....post once a day and that's my support sorted
