I am feeling very bored and isolated right now. My husband is at work during the day, and my son is in daycare (CPS mandated, so I can’t pull him out). I am home alone all day. I am looking for a job, but haven’t found one yet. I live in a small town with nothing to do. My car is doing something funky (used 3/4 tank of gas in an hour. It is a 2009 Scion xB, so it shouldn’t be eating that much gas, but it’s not leaking… who knows what it is) so I don’t feel like trekking to the nearest city (a bit over a half hour drive) and I have no friends nearby. Nothing much to do today, and I am bored and lonely, which are two very bad things to be in early recovery (I have 82 days clean according to the clean time calculator) I will be picking up my 90 days on Christmas. I don’t want to use, and don’t feel like using (I haven’t since I got clean this last time, but I had relapsed about a dozen times before that. Been in the program since St. Patrick’s day 2010) but man, this boredom and loneliness is getting to me! I’ve been everywhere I think will hold my attention on the web, painted, read, showered, cleaned, done step work, etc… what is there left to do? I am anxiously awaiting my meeting tonight at 5:30 (it’s 1:30 here) what can I do? I’ve done everything I like to do and a few things I don’t– save me from the insanity!
