THE Bottom...

I officially can't get any lower than this. This is the point at which I must change, since it is my only option. I broke up with Greg last night--told him I can't talk to him anymore. I broke my phone in half and threw it away. But I can't go back to him. This is something I am not able to handle doing--going back. The pain of staying the same is officially greater than the pain of changing. So change is my only option. Sucks.

Today it seems that the light at the end of the tunnel IS an oncoming train.

Today is called, Day one!

I remember that day (actually I don't remember it at all but I remembered it existed)    
"( http://www.ldsar.org/ViewBlog.aspx?EntryId=7176 )

I do however remember one thing. The feeling I speak of of coming out of the clouds. It was the most bazaar and wonderful and foreign feeling. I hope you find the same thing. I can remember sitting there in my one bedroom apartment in Texas (my wife and I were separated) at the dining room table and feeling the most subtle, quiet...light. I wasn't looking for it. It found me. I thought of it when you mentioned the light at the the end of the tunnel. Hope with that light comes some peaceful clarity to you."

Proud of you:-)    
"I'm so proud of you. Just as Chef says, keep coming back. Don't give up. Blog the pain and the temptation. You can do this!!"

Something someone once said to me...    
"When I was in a dark place my sister told me, "Rock bottom is a great place to have been." So true.

Sending a prayer your way."

Wow. I'm still not so happy about this...    
"But I'm stopping the insanity. Right now expletives would be the perfect description for how I'm feeling. Lots and lots of expletives. Oh, well. I'm going to get going and get to work, I've got a lot to do. Gotta keep my mind off of Greg. Unfortunately, several times at work last night I collapsed in tears. I couldn't even walk anymore. Kind of lame, but true. Oh, well. This, too, shall pass."

It does    
"You're going to mourn the loss... that is completely normal. You'll also have a period of detox.

There is a song that REALLY helped me break away from a very unhealthy relationhip...

"Thanks, Siouxsie.

Still feel like I want to die. Luckily, I have no prescription meds around. Remembering that I read somewhere that doing service helps one heal. I guess on Sunday, I'll talk to the bishop in my new ward."

Good plan:-)    
"I totally understand the feeling of wanting to die... it's like losing a limb. It sucks. But it will get better... promise!"

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "

— Boyd K. Packer
