My therapist recommended a book to me, "The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook". It's already been quite helpful in teaching me to control my emotions.
Yesterdays worksheet was about values, and while I was filling it out I realized that alcohol is interfering with my values, which is resulting in me feeling bad about myself. As a wife, as a mother, as a person who cares about her health.
I hate it when I have these huge profound moments that have been right in front of my face the whole god damn time.
Anyway, trying AGAIN. Aiming for a sober weekend with the family.
The reward (besides the obvious) will be a family dinner out next Friday night. I do love going out to eat.
Besides that, I'm sick (still), my eye is infected (again), and I'm quite bitchy. I would like to just feel like a normal human being for a quick minute instead of this congested eye infected GOON.
