Re: The First 7 Days

Hi Swordie, Yesterday, my day off too, was just a day of total pain. Just didn't know what to do with myself as the toothache was just so bad.

Re: The First 7 Days

Hey Swordie,
you are so courageous coming on here and not being "on here". I take my hat off to you. When you are ready, we are waiting for you. How about trying working week days to start?
sending you a hug,

Re: The First 7 Days

Evening all,
day five drawing to a close. Have felt a bit anxious all afternoon, but am determined not to give in to pills... like with alcohol, i just have to learn to 'feel it', good or bad.
Don't like it though. :oops:
