Melancholia vs. hope

Hi friends,  I meant to write this post a couple of days ago, when I woke up feeling down and melancholic and lonely and in need of a bit of hope.  It’s fall here (as in most of the Northern hemisphere) and I’ve finally had a few days to settle down and feel lonely inContinue reading “Melancholia vs. hope”

Day 336: Survived my First Sober Beach Vacation With the In-laws!

With sobriety becoming a normal part of everyday life and the monotony of Covid-existence, it had been a loooOoong time since I had a sober first. This one I expected would prove to be very challenging, as I had never been sober on a vacation to the beach before (beach and evening drinks went togetherContinue reading “Day 336: Survived my First Sober Beach Vacation With the In-laws!”

Day 301: Goodbye tattoo and skinny dipping

The big 300! In 65 days, I will celebrating one full year sober. I. can’t. believe. it. In the midst of my still ongoing struggle to finish the last chapter of my dissertation, I was swept off of my feet (and out of my misery) by my friend-boyfriend-partner yesterday, who took me on the mostContinue reading “Day 301: Goodbye tattoo and skinny dipping”

Day 275: 9 months! No celebration after all…

I was planning on writing an uplifting and victorious 9 months post, but as usual, reality has a talent for kicking you in the ass whenever you have set expectations.  Today on the East Coast of the U.S.A. the weather is stormy. Grey and stuffy, hot, humid, irritating. I am not a fan of complainingContinue reading “Day 275: 9 months! No celebration after all…”

Day 261: Hit hard by reality

All this isolation has me regressing back into cocoon mode, where I forget about the outside world and the universe snugly fits into my safe little stay at home bubble. And then I watched this 12 minute New York Times documentary about medical staff and morgue workers in Queens, U.S.A. and shit got real again.Continue reading “Day 261: Hit hard by reality”

Day 235: Little Rays of Quarantine Sunshine

BRAG POST ALERT! This morning I reflect upon how sobriety can lead to dramatic change in reshaping your self-image. In the past, I would alternate between narcissistic pride and hardcore self-deprecation, and there would be little room for anything in between, such as authenticity, feelings of self-worth, honest vulnerability, etc. Accepting a compliment, humbly statingContinue reading “Day 235: Little Rays of Quarantine Sunshine”

Day 230: The “Coronation”

Miracle Mornings! I hate waking up but I love coffee, so after 8:00 I’m willing to compromise. Anything before that and you’ll need a fire alarm to get me out of bed. So when I opened my eyes at 6:00 am to a dance of liquid gold coming in through the curtains today, I wasContinue reading “Day 230: The “Coronation””

Day 218: back to square one?

Don’t worry, I didn’t drink. I am just luring you in with a catchy title, because I have no soul. The square one I am talking about it relationship-related, not substance related: looks like Anne might be single again – or in need of some serious relationship counseling,.. Why am I boring you with theContinue reading “Day 218: back to square one?”
