    Trying Counselling

    Wed Aug 28, 2019 3:04 pm

    I am in the same boat as do many here... i have had the wins and the ongoing loss after loss, the shame and self hatred and loathing.. drank to numb.. worse and worse. Well i finally got to see a psych and we are working on my Coach voice instead of my Hater voice.. 3 days no pokies. Gave partner my cards and will not be hungry when i drive home.. count backwards from 300 relaxing a bit at a time.. all the best everyone 😋💪
