The Return of the Thin White Duke...or sickgirl finally reconnected her internet...

And she is back...not with a bang but a whimper! Kidding. Finally, I've gotten off of my lazy arse and had the internet reconnected at our new place. I suppose that its been long overdue as I'm rapidly nearing my two month anniversary at my new job. My how very easily time manages to slip away.

All is extremely well in my little part of the world although a little bit on the busy side but I honestly prefer it this way rather than the other. Idle hands and all...My new job has been going spectacularly well which definitely has been an extremely pleasant and welcome surprise considering how shattered leaving the previous one had left me. Even though I was having my share of real negative and depressing thoughts regarding the whole employment situation barely two months ago, I managed to keep my head above water and did not succumb to temptation. Yes, there were some floating thoughts in that particular direction because that would have been an easy way out but these thoughts managed to float on by. I knew that in the long term this would have done no one any favors so it was surprisingly easy to ignore the short term temptations.

I wish that I had a bit more time right now to really post a proper update but I've got to run as it is starting to get late and although I don't have to get up at an indecent hour for work, I do have to meet my Mother in the morning for a bit of shopping and lunch and I want to be in fighting form. The last thing I want to look like when we meet is all haggard and tired cause I'm not up for one of her lectures, blah, blah, blah. It can most definitely be a bit on the petty side on my part, but because of our history I usually ensure that I'm looking better than fine whenever we get together. This is a story for another day so for now, you'll just have to use your imaginations although I'm sure there is another daughter out there with an identical type of mother who knows of what I speak!!!

P.S. You may have noticed that I've added three other posts although they've all got dates from November 2007. After my internet had been disconnected from our previous address but before I dismantled my computer for our move, I continued to write entries saving them to my hard drive until a moment just like this one could arrive!!!

I would buy a book that was nothing more than a compilation of addicts writing about what their relationship was like with their parents.. sometimes it seems like addicts are more sensitive to turmoil in families, less insensitive about drama in general... i dislike generalizations, but i have found this to be somewhat the case... yes, no?
anyway, just a thought when you were saying you would talk about it later, your outing with your mother, I realized how curious i was about different addicts parental relationships... and what as addicts we might have in common as far as problems with our parents.
Like anorexics all tend to come from controlling families..
what about opiate abusers?
I know people drawn to opiates tend to feel overburdened in general... but what about our family troubles?
If I had to guess I would say overcomplications and many problems especially those causing us too much pain and living in a mental state of pain without realizing it are common.
