ty ty ty everyone for all my grats!

i know it's true i just cant believe it still. ME! sober for 5 years!

know how i'm celebrating? lol, i'm going back to my nurse support group i went to when under contract with TNPAP. ive been wallowing in my own self loathing and finally realized (thanks to my wonderful drug/alcohol counselor of a husband) that i need to get back in my group and share.

now matter how sober we get....that self esteem problem still rears it's ugly head at times, huh?

the good thing is this time i didnt turn to drugs to cover the feelings. oh sure, i wallowed in them for a long time, lol..but i didnt get high dammit! but if i dont do something to get out of myself, who knows what i would do?

does anyone else suffer with this even in recovery too?

thanks mark...me too. i suffer with it daily too. i wish i could look in the mirror and see what others see. what i see is a disgustingly fat woman. i am sooooooo prejudiced against fat women because i see in them what i hate in myself.

i'm still that little 8 yr old girl that had her first dance recital with her 6 yr old sister. i'm still that little girl that was yelled at all the way home by mom because she was "embarrased for being the mother of the two little fat girls".

ive made peace with my mom and everything but im still that little girl.

how do i help her grow up???
