Hi kali30, welcome. I'm sorry to hear that you're having a hard time. Do you have any support at home or go to any groups?

If you're not seeing a therapist, please think about seeing one so that s/he can help you learn ways to deal with your emotions.

Talk with us here too. Sometimes just writing things out and then reading them back to yourself help. This is a link to some Cognitive Behavioral Therapy tools that might be helpful too: http://moodgym.anu.edu.au/welcome

Look at how much you've accomplished! You've been addiction free for over 2 and a half years, that is HUGE. You should be really proud of yourself. Maybe think about writing out a 'gratitude list' and keep it with you so you can refocus on things that are dear to you.

I'm sorry to hear about your mom's passing. Maybe do something special on that day in honor of her that might help take some of the sadness away.

Please let me know how you're doing.

Nancy

Hi again, I just found this, Crystal Meth Anonymous.
http://www.crystalmeth.org/

That might be something to look into also to see if there's a meeting near you?

thank you for the link to cma. . i am doing better now. i just have them days. yes i do attend na meetings sometimes. i was going regularly but someone there hurt my feelings pretty bad so i have not been going much. i will suck it up. i just went and spoke about how i recieved a letter from my kids telling me they didnt want to see me till they were outta college. they are 12. i was really upset and wanting to use to make it go away. and he said some rude things about wanting pity and stuff. that was not my intent .. it was just needing some one to tell me to stay focused. anyways..
