Crazy But Alive And Happy

I'm still here and I'm doing well. Thanks for your concern Toes. I'm on my 6th day of being sober. It hasn't been that bad of a week for me. It's actually flown by. I talked to my bishop on Sunday and I just cried when I told him what I had done. I couldn't look at him half the time with how ashamed I felt but whenever I looked up, he had such sorrow in his eyes. He seemed more concerned about me being happy then what I had done. He's starting to know my personality well enough that he knows if I'm sinning, I'm not happy. He didn't even slap a huge punishment on me like I thought he would. Just a couple weeks without the sacrament and he said we'd go from there. He even gave me a hug when I left. He never gives hugs so that was a big deal to me. I'm much happier this week then I have been for a few weeks and it's nice. I still think I'm going crazy though. I've had a couple people tell me that my memory is getting really bad (which I agree with) and I just don't feel all together mentally but I can handle it as long as I'm happy.

I also found out that I'm getting nice and healthy. I went to the doctor the other day and he says my illness is getting under control and I can work on getting off some of my medication. They are steroids so they mess with me horribly. I hope I'll become more normal once I'm off them.


"Glad to hear that you are doing well. Congratulations on day 6.

I am happy to hear that you are "nice and healthy".

Keep up the good work!"

"[The Savior] is saying to us, "Trust me, learn of me, do what I do. Then, when you walk where I am going," He says, "we can talk about where you are going, and the problems you face and the troubles you have. If you will follow me, I will lead you out of darkness," He promises. "I will give you answers to your prayers. I will give you rest to your souls.""
