Day 361

Another long day.

Still too much family drama thanks to Scylla...she's really pulling out all the stops this time. Had a lot of anger earlier today but oddly enough kinda peaceful now about the horrible lying and truth-twisting. She can make a lot of noise and gets to Spouse the way my mother got to me but she can't hurt me and I am not at all above telling her the hell off. One of the things sobering up, turning 50 and being menopausal gave me was the belief that I'm old and wise enough to say what the fuck I feel like saying and not be all worried about conflict or the feelings of those who have been awful. Had enough experience as an adult to figure that I'm basically decent and those who anger me probably have it coming.

That applied at work today too. Stayed angry a bit longer but got over that one too.

Gonna spend my Sunday Soberversary at the other house in more civilization; how cool is that?

Gotta sleep now though.


  1. Awesome.
    The best thing about being sober is that per people can't manipulate me into thinking it is all my fault.

    Because I know exactly what's going on.

    It's amazing how obvious this sort of tactic become.

    Great job!

  2. Thanks! I agree: being sober and thus able to trust one's memories and thoughts is a huge plus for difficult interpersonal situations.
