*Big bro-hug.*

Thanks Nishi that is certainly true and also the death of my best friend by suicide, divorce costs I cannot afford and discovering I owe thousands in child support that the agency diddnt tell me about until two weeks ago, not really an excuse but it makes it harder to stay sober.

Step forward one day at a time, do your best, pay off a little bit at a time, and you will get it settled eventually...I know it is hard. But I think you can do it.

I post this pic the other day in "photography" with the story about the little Pine Siskin that had nested on my porch wreath.

Mother Nature is sometimes a cruel mistress. When I went out this morning a cat that I have never seen before was in the yard of the neighbors to the north. It ran off but as I left for work I worried about the nest. I was right to be concerned. When I came home tonight the nest had been ripped from the wreath and was laying on the porch with broken bits of blue shells scattered around it. Sadcryface2

There was nothing I could do this morning to protect it. It was only 40 inches from the ground and I could not move it to a safe place. I needed to share. I hope she finds a better nesting site for the next brood. Poor tiny momma.

I know exactly what he's going to do he's going to take blood for liver function tests and gamma gt both of which I'm certain are going to be wildly abnormal and if my family gets wind of this I'm out on the streets, which is a terrifying prospect. I'm currently sober its not the stopping drinking that's hard its staying stopped AA doesn't help all in all its a real mess but its good to vent, thanks for listening folks Smile

There are alternatives to AA, e.g. Rational Recovery.

RE: The Official Crying Thread
We are making a mad dash to a distant auto parts store tonight when I noticed I had a new text from a friend. Being a dutiful driver I ask my wife to read it. It was not from Terry, but it was from his phone. His wife texted us to say he was gone Sad
He had a heart attack on the 5th, and I heard about it and told him to get better. He was already home and things had seemingly gone well. He was in the cath lab within 25 minutes of the initial call and seemed to be doing well. We talked about camping this summer, he wanted to attend some of our group events.
He and I worked together for 10 years, taking care of the telecom and computer needs of a nursing home. I set them up from scratch and installed all the gear, but he was the maintenance manager there and my "go to" guy to keep the lid on. I live 160 miles away and It might take a while to get there. He did not know much to start, but he did more and more for me and I could count on him. He had that cheerful, irreverent, sarcastic demeanor that made the day short. Damn I will miss him.

Undecided Sorry. He sounds like a great guy.

RE: The Official Crying Thread
Thank you guys. he was 51, and his brother died at a similar age not long ago. Bad family history. I thought he was going to be OK since he works minutes from the hospital and he was treated quickly, and the prognosis was supposedly good.

I am terribly sorry for the loss of your friend.
