> It's very early on the 23rd + I'm thinking of you. I posted before about my letter-writing obsession w/ my T. I empathize with what you're going through. I lost my "sobriety" and wrote my T back in December. It was a setback and there was fall-out in my life. But now I'm OK. (I'm meaning to point out that, with some time, an obsessive episode can lose its power).

Yes, I was getting "episodes" a lot.. many times a day. Unfortunately, the telephone became a weapon in my hands. A weapon against what, though? That's what I'm wondering. I can be really dumb.

You're really nice. You seem to understand, and I appreciate that, and it's nice you're sharing but you don't need to worry about the right thing to say. If it's something that's triggering or makes me angry or irrational, as long as you can handle it it's okay by me. I'm not asking for free therapy, but the point is, that if I have crazy thoughts then I can usually see them later, after I posted. Things come together much better when you can put them in writing, no matter how dumb they sound at the time. It all helps, Alex. Thanks for sharing.
