    Pretty sure you're talking about Owsley Stanley? He wasn't actually in the band, but he did work for them. Anyway, I don't want to argue with you or anything. I genuinely hope it all works out for you

    Owsley has a recipe for acid?

    Now I know his secret recipe for his killer Bloody Mary.

    Don’t know. I think everything will work out. I get a little erratic and divulge too much about my personal life but I don’t know you all and feel I can vent in a way I can’t to some people in real life. I know I’ve been being annoying.

    Physically attacking. He sent my friend to the hospital and bit and mauled a 7 year old.

    Dude, if you were actually bothering anyone that much, they would have you on ignore. I know you like hearing stuff like that, but it's true

    She recognizes that she's a terrible person, but she loves our niece and nephew and would never get to see them if she just told her sister to fuck off.

    Her sister is an insane person who would legitimately keep her from seeing the kids if she ignored her. These aren't hour long heartfelt conversations or anything. Her sister will call her and say something stupid, and they'll be off the phone in a couple minutes.

    I feel bad for The Real Roy Williams not being able to stop drinking and his friend dying.

    His insistence on staying in this “relationship” deserves ridicule though. Like how fucking dumb do you have to be. There isn’t a single person on this board (or anyone in real life with a brain) who thinks you should stay with her.

    She’s not the problem. If anything she’s helping. She doesn’t get fucked up all the time. If anything I’m the problem and I don’t drink all the time. Just sometimes.

    The people that are put in our lives shape us in ways unknown or seen later down the road. I’ve been in your boat with my first fiancé. She was someone I put all my effort into helping because I was unable to help myself. It became a vicious cycle. I’m not saying being with her is bad at this moment ;however, until I found internal validation through something non faliable such as spiritually, God, or community, I couldn’t truly love someone. Getting sober and finding character, strength and hope is free for all and envelopes you in a passion for life that is unfathomable.

    I appreciate your advice and respect how different people deal with things. I’m not into all the Christian stuff but to each their own. I am very spiritual but in my own way. I’m telling you she is not the problem. I don’t think leaving her is what I need right now. She has helped a lot. It would probably fuck me up.

    It’s not a vicious cycle. She was sad about our friend and spent time with his family. She took some acid, dumb but not a deal breaker. This isn’t a frequent thing.

    *Roy goes online and bitches about all of his problems in life, most involving his girlfriend who "does acid" with a "friend"*

    "She's not the problem, she's a good person."

    "Dude she's your problem."

    "No I'm sure of it. By the way here are some more problems I have because of her."
     
  26. Marbles

    Marbles Trudging the road to happy destiny

    Actually, she’s not. Most problems of our own making. The decisions of allowing people in our lives is our own decision. When we place blame of our problems on other people it allows us to stay in a mindset of when the other person is better, I’ll be better. We have to look at what we can control and how we can change. We then tend to make better decisions regarding the influence of others in our lives. People here telling him that his girl is the problem miss the mark completely allowing him to stay in a victim mindset instead of beginning to work on the real problem which ultimately boil down to our actions or lack thereof.

    no one is saying she is the problem, we’re saying she is a problem. It’s not a “victim mindset” to say a relationship is fucked up.

    Yes I agree but it starts with baby steps. And convincing someone that radical steps getting rid of any current way of coping without healthy replacements in place can seem daunting and discouraging. When working with an individual, I believe its best to start working on things that seem easy to change and gradually change as they see progress in healthy behaviors which leads to more clarity and enevitable change. There’s a saying in recovery that if nothing changes then nothing changes, but breaking emeshment with someone or something that provides validity needs to be proceeded with caution and tact.

    do you just blindly repeat things you have heard in AA meetings?
     
  31. Marbles

    Marbles Trudging the road to happy destiny

    Absolutely not. It comes from things and heard that has made an impact In my life and others around me. AA is great but it is not the first source of my recovery. I believe you and I are on the same team and although our approach varies, the end goal is the same. I’m not sure why you think I blindly do anything. As I don’t believe I’ve just thrown anything out there or displayed anything that isn’t healthy and full of compassion and care. Sorry if I rubbed you the wrong way.

    Fuck off yourself, if you don’t want to see my opinion block me.

    2-3 pages of counseling someone on substance abuse and mental health is not really the thrust of this thread.

    And spare me the we are trying to help him bullshit. There are for profit and not for profit professionals in his state and probably in his very own city that specialize in just this thing.

    Until he is ready for help, a thread more specific to his issues seems the best place to discuss this.

    Mine woke up and decided she wants to open up her own optometry practice. Said she doesn't want me to help her.

    5 minutes later was bitching at me for not having more thoughts and wanting to help.

    last night, while up late studying/working, my girlfriend was in the bed sleeping. At 11 PM she yelled ARE YOU COOKING SOMETHING?

    I said no, you were just dreaming, go back to sleep.

    30 minutes later she shouts IS IT MORNING ALREADY?

    I said no.

    She often will wake up and scream about her dream/spiders or something. One time she woke up and stood up on the bed to avoid whatever was in her dream.

    I am really surprised by my ability to calm her down and not get startled when I am dead asleep and wake up to this.

    Happens probably once every 2-3 weeks.

    Already reached out to a banker, commercial real estate agent, and sent emails to a few of the manufacturer/distributors in that industry. Told them all to call/email her directly. I bet she's going to come home tonight bragging about all the people she talked to in order to get started.

    Played a riveting game of where are FRs truck keys this morning after LadyRes borrowed it yesterday to haul hay with. I got to trek around to several vehicles, several times in search of keys, then a purse, then various garments with pockets until keys were located inside, just not on the key rack. Mind you, it was 22 degrees this morning, still dark, and I was in shorts, a t-shirt, and slippers. As I finally get back inside, she hits the remote start button for her car. The irony did not escape me.

    my wife came and woke me up at 530 to tell me the new Ninja juicer that i bought her yesterday wasn't working, said that the display was froze or something and it wouldn't do anything when she pressed buttons.

    the display was "froze" because i hadn't pulled the sticker off of it, and it wasn't doing anything when she pressed buttons because the motherfucking thing wasn't plugged in.

    she's a teacher.

    this country is fucked.

    I forgot to mention that my 14 year old stepdaughter was in there with her and neither one of them realized it was a sticker on the display, nor thought to check if the goddamned thing was plugged in.
