Moving Day!

After a few weeks of getting my new place move-in ready (painting, fixing the bathroom lights, getting the carpets cleaned, etc), it's finally ready for me to move in.  The big day is next Thursday!

I'm very excited to be taking this next step.  I have worked very hard, not just on the recovery aspects, but also on the career/financial aspects.  It's been a long, long slog.  And it's nice to see that all my hard work is paying off.

Not that I'm not nervous.  Transitions are always hard for me, and I know that this is a slightly higher risk for relapse.  I've been working with my former therapist and parents to set up a good plan.

In the meantime, though, there are boxes to pack and bills to pay and stories to write.

This is so wonderful. And yes, stressful. (Got that Ativan handy? ;) ) But definitely more wonderful than stressful!

Congratulations on this well earned prize for all your hard work!

I hope the move goes really well!
