Finally I'm beating this...for anyone that has been following my story, I lost out on a job this week as a police officer because of SA. I was taking paxil and they disqualified me. I am angry....My anger now outweighs my fear. I went to a bar today and sat alone.. had a drink and a club sandwich. I didn't care who looked at me. No more SA for me. I'm facing this beast and beating it. Tomorrow a movie alone. Then a drink on a Friday night at a crowded bar. Maybe talk to a girl who I do not know. This will no longer own me. :duel The battle is on.

Nice. I too made some trips out of the house finally. Felt pretty damned good (even though I didnt go very far).

However, it depends how im feeling during the day to get the courage to go somewhere myself.

Maybe the jobloss was a sign of good things to come?

That quote

The furniture polish quote is hilarious. If you don't have a copyright on it, I would like to use that. :haha

Darkknight,

SunLight and Joy may also use real lemons in their dish detergent :lol. That is unreal, though.

In terms of your fight with SA, you go! As I mentioned in another post to you, just be careful with the alcohol stuff when you go into a bar. Don't let it become a coping mechanism.

Confronting SA head on is one of the most difficult things I can think of, but all of us are going to have to do it eventually. Here's to bravery !
