  • 3rd Dday and 32nd wedding anniversary

    Monday, May 12, 2014 | A Positive story

    Our 3rd Dday anniversary (Discovery day that my husband found out about my affair) and our 32nd wedding anniversary are only 4 days apart.  Sunday was our Dday anniversary and Thursday is my wedding anniversary.  We spent this last weekend at a bed and breakfast in honor of both.  It was a wonderful weekend.  There is nothing like spending all that quality time focused on each...

  • Well I completed my goal

    Saturday, April 26, 2014 | A Positive story

    yippee !
    As most of you already know, I gave up sweets for Lent. The dirty half-dozen--cookies, cake, pie, candy, donuts, and ice cream. Now that Lent is over, I must be careful not to start to indulge in sweets too frequently. Will aim for one normal portion once a week. 
    Thanks for your support. Love to All.
    xo Judy

  • Doing okay

    Thursday, March 5, 2015 | A Positive story

    I'm really doing okay. I really am. I still have so many things to figure out, like where to live, how to make money- you know the hard stuff. But I am so much better just by not being with him.
    This feeling I've had the past 2 days is freedom. The huge weight of his control over me is lifting. I can come & go as I like. I can sleep & eat as I like. :)
    I have applied for an apartment that...

    "So how do you best respond when mental or emotional challenges confront you or those you love? Above all, never lose faith in your Father in Heaven, who loves you more than you can comprehend. ... Never, ever doubt that, and never harden your heart."

  • Starting over again

    Monday, March 9, 2015 | A Positive story

    I am happy & I am sad. I saw him on 3 separate occasions this week. A good friend of ours died so we were both around the family and at the funeral. It was weird and uncomfortable being around each other in the same group of people that we were always together with. We were like doing some kind of dance, slipping back in forth from acting like a couple to acting like mere acquaintances. And t...

  • JFT: NA: April 21; FEAR

    Tuesday, April 21, 2015 | A Positive story

    "We have found that we had no choice except to completely change our old ways of thinking or go back to using."
    NA: Basic Text, p. 21
    Many of us find that our old ways of thinking were dominated by fear. We were afraid that we wouldn't be able to get our drugs or that there wouldn't be enough. We feared discovery, arrest, and incarceration. Further down the list were fears of financial problems, ...

  • 30 Days of Gratitude: Days 3, 4, and 5 (I think)

    Friday, April 17, 2015 | A Positive story

    Day 3 - My car and here's why: It runs. 
    One of my favorite songs by Neil Young could really be a tribute to my 2006 Hyundai. 
    Here are the lyrics:
    "Long May You Run"
    We've been through
    some things together
    With trunks of memories
    still to come
    We found things to do
    in stormy weather
    Long may you run.
    This sums it up.
    Day 4 - My job and here's why. It pays my bills and even funds (somew...

  • Love Oldies but Goodies -- Musically Speaking

    Tuesday, January 6, 2015 | A Positive story

    Was driving back after Christmas and pulled into a Flying J on the way home when the gas light came on.
    You may not know this, but Flying J always has the cheapest gas in my state. It is also a truck stop I noticed, complete with showers adjacent to the bathrooms, but I digress.
    They had a bin of CDs near the register and I couldn't help myself. I had an hour left to go and I was bored and needed...
