Hi all! Sorry I haven't posted much recently. I wanted to see how everyone is doing- hopefully well
I'm doing ok, much better than before. Things with my H are going well. He had 1 year sober in January and says he's feeling great about his recovery. He goes to meetings 2-3 times a week and sees his therapist about once a month. I'm proud of him and hopeful for our future.
I'm feeling more in control of my life and starting to enjoy things for myself more. Work has been rough, but I'm trying not to let it get to me much. I'm having trouble with friends that feel I have been too absent and self-absorbed. I probably have and I've tried to apologize but it's not looking good for saving the friendships, so I'm really down about that. Other than that just looking forward to spring.
Holy crap, a year already? That's awesome for him. And for you! I remember when you first posted it didn't sound like you thought things would work out. I'm glad he has committed himself to recovery and to your relationship. A big pat on the back for him. And again, also for you. Being the partner of someone in recovery can be exhausting. I am so glad you are doing well.
Not much different in my world. I believe H is still drinking, albeit not very much and not very often. We are generally getting along pretty well. I've made it to an 80 pound weight loss with 8 pounds more to go to hit my goal. Health and fitness have totally taken over my life, to the point I've briefly considered switching careers. But for that to happen, I'd rather my DD be in full time school before I make any major changes like that. I really enjoy fitness now, and I'm signed up for a half-marathon in September. I started running in January 2015. I ran 8.15 miles on Sunday when it was gorgeous here in MN. I've got this half conquered.
