My lovely is gone…

One of my blogging friends has recently deleted her blog and disappeared into cyberspace. I am really sad about this, I feel a sense of loss and bewilderment.  I am working day and night so can’t write a proper post about this, I will when I have time. I am so tired. I am functioning on very little sleep. Have to work while the work is here, I am grateful for it but it’s really intense working a full work day, then children and then working at night till 1-2 in morning. Think I need to sleep, I had to rewrite morning 3 times because I couldn’t figure out how to spell it.

Come back Jenna, where have you gone?

  1. Hi sweetie. Thank you for missing me. I am still here. Still sober. Still reading all my favourite bloggers and hopefully contributing.
    It is hard to explain why I deleted my blog. A lot of it had to do with time, counting days. It felt like a constant reminder of just how slow time travels when you sit and wait. I felt that I needed to leave and carry on with life not thinking about sobriety 24/7. I have shut down so much of my social media, I only have IG left. I am trying to read more, go out in to nature more, photograph, exercise. All the things I never did because I spent so much time on the internet.
    Maybe when I reach 12 months of sobriety I will start back. I won’t feel the pressure of counting days so much and maybe can apply some wisdom. In the meantime you will have to put up with my comments 😘😘

  2. Howdo Hurrah, I’m sending empathetic sleep deprived love to you this morning before I struggle to paint my face on and head off to work. I’ve over doing it too. And miss my house and my family. Thinking of you, Love The Sober Garden x.

  3. I think we are in a blogging lull at the moment. I’m not blogging and I notice several others have slowed down or stopped. I’m sure it’s cyclical and something to do with how much “life” we are all having to deal with. For me I think I had this massive brain surge after 3 months, my thoughts were clearer, I was able to think about the big things cos I wasn’t thinking about how I needed to stop drinking, I had headspace to contemplate and self analyse. Once that surge calmed down I have sort of reached a new normal and don’t feel like I have to blog every new thought that comes up. I like blogging but I feel a bit “mheh” about it most of the time. I’m at 301 days now so the year is fast approaching but I feel slightly flat and like I don’t have much to say.
    Having said all that I get a great lift out of your posts, so keep em coming.

  4. Congrats on your day-count Ginger. Hurrah, I wanted to share with you that an old sponsee of mine recently called me. Totally out of the blue. Had been years. He’s doing fine it turns out. I couldn’t believe it. I naturally assumed that because he fell out of touch, something horrible happened. Not true at all.

    I guess I’m just saying sometimes when someone falls off, it doesn’t always mean the worst, which is ALWAYS what I assume.

  5. Hi Hurrah!
    I am sorry you are not sleeping much, and hope you get some very soon.
    You have a super busy life!

    I Quit Wineing, I am glad you are doing what you need to do to take care of you!

    Ginger, I haven’t been writing as much as I did, and I have no excuse!

    Hugs to everyone here!!!

  6. I’ve been following many of you bloggers of the sober/recovery community for the past month. All of your blogs have been a lifeline so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    I’ve thought a lot about the responsibility you might feel towards your followers – posting fresh thoughts, responding to comments, offering kind words and encouragements, etc… That’s a ton of pressure on you! You are doing some heavy lifting! I realize your followers play an important role too but I feel like we followers can parachute in and drop comments wherever we need to, while remaining anonymous, and without bearing the same feeling of responsibility that bloggers might bear.

    If you quit blogging, please know you will be missed but please don’t feel guilty or feel you’ve let anyone down. Think about what you have given to this community and be proud of that! That contribution is HUGE!!!

    xo to all
