that is certainly an accomplishment and if you're anything like me, it didn't come easily. quite a few no-matter-what times. anyways, i'm feeling so down these past few weeks.. nothing seeming to be quite right.. something feels 'not God's will' in my life and i can't figure it out, and i realize that's what making me feel like cutting/using/psuedo-suicidal lately. but you know, your post was just the little bit of reminder i needed- that other people are trying their best to do most of the same things as me. clean since 7-14-05 and cut/burn/hit free just under a year. hope this comment finds you well and celebrating life, because i sure am not today.
love&peace
