face to face counselling got postponed to next week cause she had a family emergency but still was able to do it over the phone.
she's great, she is def making me feel better about things and that i can only control what i can control.
there's also so many good self help videos on Youtube that i recommend to people to check out, its making me feel a lot better and opening my eyes to why i went the path i went down and that i didnt gamble because i didnt care about people and that i loved gambling, there's so many small things that all add up and the gambling was the outlet i directed what i couldn't/didnt deal with.

i feel a lot better about myself, i honestly have hardly had an urge since this has all played out. Im not naive to think it wont get them more as my emotions and things change but i know now why i did it and i can put things in place to stop it or to be frank.... all i have to do is think about my wife and the part it played in our break up and thats enough for me.

Going to the SANFL GF Sunday with my nephew so im looking fwd to getting out the house, got a couple days off coming up so will grab the rest of my gear from the old place and start settling into my brothers and start looking ahead.

Hi Pricey,

Congrats on the progress you have made, it's awesome :D

Being able to forgive yourself for past mistakes is hard but an important step. We can't dwell in the past only move toward a brighter future, a future we all deserve.

Keep up the great work and be well
