I know this may sound silly. My neighbor is an addict. They has been screaming since 7/8am about not getting this and that. Screaming at her relative that lives in my building from the other building. This has gone on all year but recently in the past week it is the worst it has ever been. I can call management but I am literally afraid this person will start bullying me. Management never gives out names but it's a small community. Everyone finds out. I am afraid if I get provoked by this person I won't hold my tongue to say the least. It has gotten so bad I was craving a cigarette and and to get high last night. I have refrained from drugs and alcohol and even the cigarette. I am also worried about my s.o who is also recovering. My s.o is not here for most of it. When I go back to work I am actually afraid to leave my dogs here. This person's s.o is a sober friend of mine. They walk away everytime the s.o has a meltdown. I feel like as a group we are supposed to be there for one another. I do not want to call management or the cops because we all are going through something. I am literally on the brink of having a panic attack. I can not even go on my deck without this person yelling about something and not at me. This person reminds me a lot of one of my relatives who severely abused me under the influence. I am sorry if I sound like I am whining. I am trying to find compassion for this person who clearly is going through a dark time while staying sober and sane. Thank you to anyone that writes back. Many blessings.
My husband doesn’t see that he has a drinking problem, which makes me feel crazy. He will drink a 12 or 15 pack in a day and then forget everything he says and does. I have finally given him an ultimatum. I just don’t know what else to do.
It's evening here in the eastern US and I'm thinking about one single small change I can make starting tomorrow. Because hey, if I could make one tiny change every day, or even five days a week, I'd have this mess of a life tidied up in no time, right?I'm going to drink a full glass of water before I have any coffee or breakfast, starting tomorrow, and everyday going forward. I am never quite...
