    Good lyrics for those trying...

    My sister got me this Carrie Underwood CD that I wanted for Christmas and when I turned it on and heard the first song I was like oh my gosh I can't believe how much this applies to my life...see tomorrow I start drug/alcohol rehab....anyway I have been listening to this song and cd all day it's amazing....

    Standing at the back door
    She tried to make it fast
    One tear hit the hard wood
    It fell like broken glass
    She said sometimes love slips away
    And you just can't get it back
    Let's face it

    For one split second
    She almost turned around
    But that would be like pouring rain drops
    Back into a cloud
    So she took another step and said
    I see the way out and I'm gonna' take it

    I don't wanna' spend my life jaded
    Waiting to wake up one day and find
    That I've let all these years go by

    Another glass of whisky but it still don't kill the pain
    So he stumbles to the sink and pours it down the drain
    He says it's time to be a man and stop living for yesterday
    Gotta face it.

    Cause' I don't wanna' spend my life jaded
    Waiting to wake up one day and find
    That I've let all these years go by

    Oh I don't wanna' keep on wishing, missing
    The still of the morning, the color of the night
    I ain't spending no more time

    She kept drivin' along
    Till the moon and the sun were floating side-by-side
    He looked in the mirror and his eyes were clear
    For the first time in a while

    How can you have a beautiful ending without making beautiful mistakes.

    Music can be amazing that way - you hear a song written by someone you've never met who's never even heard of you or your life and it strikes right through all the fog and mystery right to your soul, as if it was written for you and about you.

    I've had that happen more than once in my life...

    Good luck with your program, kels.

    Of course, you can do this, kels! We can do anything we truly set our minds to do. I believe in you, hon. Now, you just keep believing in you. :)

    kels, that's too bad your mom thinks she's being supportive in saying those things... the point is, you can always "move on" to some other destructive coping mechanism, but that's nothing new... what you can do is learn ways to try and prevent exactly that from happening. you've been through your share of things and you've made it through, so maybe these things were your way of dealing w/ other things... just remember that it's not like you enjoy going from one thing to the next, I don't think anyone ever sits down as says, "now, let's see, what else can I do to be self-destructive and hurt myself & others?"- it's not that clear cut. sure, you may want to be self-destructive but that's a totally different thing. your mom clearly hasn't understood that yet and many people don't.... they think we can just wake up one day and stop... everyone makes mistakes though, everyone tries to deal in one way or another... and as bad as all of those things have been I think it gave you a greater understanding of people's struggles and your own strengths and weaknesses. keep fighting b/c you have a lot more to look forward to- good things. :o)

    Hi, I just wanted to give an update...I have finished my first week of groups and couseling...I haven't used or drank since Christmas Eve which means that I am w/drawling from the drugs really badly so things have been really hard from that angle...on the other side I really like two of the three groups that I'm in...the one group is a dual diagnosis group b/c I have problems w/ addiction and have been diagnosed w/ major depressive disorder recurrent...this is probably one of the most important groups for me b/c some of the reasons that I turned to alcohol and drugs was b/c of depression....the other group I really like is the women's group b/c there are things you can talk about w/ just women that you can't talk about w/ guys...sorry guys you just woulnd't understand : ) the other group I'm in is like a very structered education group and I don't really like the set up of the group or the guy who runs it but I will stick w/ it...also I'm going to NA (Narcotics Anonymous) meetings once a week w/ some of the girls from the women's group...even though I feel like I've been hit by a mac truck b/c of detoxing I really feel like I'm going to make it through this and be successful w/ treatment...I also think that this is going to help me w/ other issues like SI and no self esteem and other stuff....for the first time in about a year I finally have a little bit of hope and that's enough for me right now to keep going....
