God, that was fun. 5-hour rendezvous with my cravings tonight. Good times. My head went numb thinking about it all. I had it all planned out for hours. I have really deep stuff to dig into and I want to write, but feel I cannot begin without lubricating my mind.
So, what did I do? I wrote about immediate surface-level things instead…things that were not as hard to tackle. Smaller nuisances. Nit picky things. Buzzy things. Things that would lubricate and stretch my mind enough to face the deeper issues. It worked really well, I have to say. The headache is gone. I am breathing again. The obsession has passed.
Nothing, and I mean NOTHING has been as beneficial to my recovery as writing has been. Glad to have finally found a tool that really works.
