Still sober...

Or am I dry drunk? Not even sure what that is, so if anyone knows, please tell me.

Husband is so mad at me. He knows I've had further involvement with Greg. But I am extra done with Greg's sorry @$$. And he is so very mad at me because of how I broke up with him. He's sent me many angry emails. And I don't care if he's mad. I kind of even find it a little bit funny, maybe because I am just plain wrong. :)

But it's hard. Feels like I am gonna die of horniness.

Talked to my new bishop on Sunday. It sounds like I'll have to go before a council. Argh. Boo. Oh, well. He is also getting me counseling at LDS family services. I hope that helps.

Ugh. Why did I waste so much time and so much love on such a creepy, creepy man? Wish I could get that back. Boo.


"You make me smile:-) Good job! So glad you are still on the wagon.

A dry drunk is someone who has given up the drug but still has the behaviors.

Give the hubby time.

Change the email address.


Love ya!"

Thanks, everyone    
"Talked to my bishop last week. Talked to him some more this week. Can't take the sacrament yet. He gave me a bunch of reading assignments, told me to get some counsel ling, and told me to go to the LDS ARP meetings. I guess I'll try going to that, but I'm still going to SA."

Where are you?    
"If you don't want to answer that's fine... but I'm just wondering - are you in Utah? Or what state are you in? Womens meetings are starting to pop up all over so that could eventually be an option!"

"Yeah, I'm in Utah.

Heart still misses Greg. But I remember the sobriety tip: Remember HOW IT WAS. Your last drunk, the feelings, etc. Being with him felt like fireworks, but it also made my heart Die. Not going back that way again, there is only pain.

Downloaded some self-hypnosis things on getting over relationships. Hope that helps, also."

Are you in Utah County?    
"Are you in Utah County? If so I have resources for you."

Salt Lake    
"If you want to take this discussion private you can email me at But I know there are meetings for women up your way too, I've attended some of them. I can help you find them if you need help. I'd even be willing to go with you if you'd like a buddy to go with:-)"
