    Congratulations, I remember when I hit this point in my recovery, it is like waking up from a dream and it only gets better. Make sure you go outside today, even if the weather isnt all that good, look up at the sky, breath in the fresh air, take in all the sights, sounds and smells that you just glazed over while high on pills. You will be amazed at what you have been missing.

    Good Job!

    Gamomma: Just checking in and saying Yeah!! I'm so happy for you isn't it a great feeling when even others notice a difference? My boyfriend asked me the other day.. Where are you getting all this energy from? I used to think the pills gave me energy, I needed them to do anything but now I realize they just distanced me from everything I enjoyed. I was almost lifeless, like not even here. I hope you have a wonderful weekend Isnt your birthday soon?? What a wonderful gift to give yourself, actually the BEST gift... Getting you back and able to enjoy life!! <3
