I hate being sick

It's been an exhausting week. I started my new job on Monday. I think it's going to be a good job. Last night I started not feeling well. Being sick is probably my biggest trigger, especially if I can't sleep. I knew every time I woke up (or got woke up) and tried to get back to sleep, there was a very real risk of relapse. I'm on day 37 though, and I'm determined to not let a cold screw that up for me. God has really been helping me out. I wouldn't be on day 37 without Him. I missed church today, but I read some scriptures. I'm going to try to take a little nap. I just pray that I'll feel better tomorrow because I can't afford to take the day off, and I pray that I'll get through this cold sober.


"I hope you feel better real soon! Being sick ALWAYS makes me strange emotionally. Congratulations on the job. You might think about being real kind to yourself while you are sick. No mentally berating yourself. Your sick. Treat yourself like you would a sick friend. And keep up the good work! You really are doing awesome. Sometimes we just can't see it when it in ourselves as well as we see it in others."

Feeling better    
"I'm still sober. :) I'm feeling better, but not great. I went to work today which helped with the urges. I'm headed to be early. I'll be praying for help staying sober and to fall asleep quickly and sleep well. Hopefully I'll feel even better tomorrow. Here's to making sure today is Day 38!"

"If it were possible to make your road very easy, you wouldn’t grow in strength. If you were always forgiven for every mistake without effort on your part, you would never receive the blessings of repentance. If everything were done for you, you wouldn’t learn how to work, or gain self-confidence, or acquire the power to change. "
