Hey Tiny,

Are you listening to the ocean?  The winds are raging here....I have the door open so can hear it better..just blowing allergens in...lol....but your ocean is blowing the desperation out of you.

Did you do the deep breaths like Lore said.  Do 10 in a row and it will tire you out. Are there any straws available at work!!!!  Ice water??

This will pass...it is the strongest urges that indicate the strongest healing when you are past them!!  Go Tiny!!  You can do this!!

Am glad you can cry.  Tears of purification of all these emotions hitting you right now.  Cry ur heart out girl. You will be so glad you did not act on what this demon wants you to do.  Yes, am calling massive angels of protection along with Lore.  Open your eyes to them.  They are standing all around you protecting you.

Back at work yet?  Hang in there.

My hearing aids are fancy and connect to my phone so Im listening to the ocean. I'm sure people in the cafeteria think I'm nuts if they saw me. Just sobbing. I can't get a straw here but I think the breathing is helping. Oh, peggy. The fact that you gave a hoot really helps. Maybe I do have a tribe after all.

Yes, Tiny. Like it or not, you have a Tribe here. And we are gonna ride those Scooters one day!! grin
So go to your Crunchy Store after work, (nowhere else mind you as I know the crunchy store here does not sell smokes) And get you some of those reusable straws. Ours has stainless ones and bamboo too. Keep it with you. Get several. They come in packs. Keep some at your desk so you have a straw. We don’t have straws in PDX. They were outlawed a few years ago. Maybe you can get a recycled paper one some places with your drink but you have to ask. Anyway, get some to keep with you so have it.

I think I’m gonna go get a Daith piercing today. The woman who does my massage and acupuncture is a Chinese Medicine Provider too. She said that a Daith can serve as an acupressure point for emotions running amuck. Daughter has one and she said it helps. Quicker and easier and cheaper than another Tat right now, LOL! Yeah...even sounds grounding...put a ring right through the “crux of the helix”. Which ear I’m not sure yet. Probably right as I mostly sleep on the left and those cartilage piercings take a while to heal. Maybe the whole Tribe should get one! Could be our symbol!!joy

I had a rook for a while and it just wouldn't heal right. Probably because I had it on the left. I've been thinking about an ocean tattoo...

I like a Rook too. Was it on side you sleep on? My Tragus piercing is on my left. Got it when I was like 32 and had to hunt all over Seattle for a Piercer to do it. Took a long time to heal because I sleep on that side. Daughter has an Industrial that I had to sign off for and go with her a year or so ago. That took a while to heal and she kept knocking it at her Circus classes. Yes...go get you an Ocean tattoo to remind you of the healing of your quit.

Yes my sweet you have a tribe here.

And it is not Tinybadger it’s Giantbadger cos you are stronger and bigger than you think!!  Good for you listening to the ocean.  Who gives a rip what people think???  You are healing at a high rate right now.  You are protected and cherished and will not be cast down into the rotten nicotine encrusted mire!!  Oh that visual just freaked me out!!!  Lol.

Thank you for telling me where you are right now!,!

Daith on sistas!!!  Lol never heard of that!!!  Daith on!  Let us know where this piercing occurs!!!  May not be in the teacher dress code.  LOL

LOVE YA TINY...HANG ON!!

Oh wow, really? I would think it shouldn’t matter what you get pierced! It is a hard to describe place in the ear, in the cartilage just above the ear canal. Maybe Google image it to see better. That’s funny the difference in regions...I don’t know if any of Daughter’s Teachers Don’t  have piercings and tattoos here. It’s kind of PDX dress code, lol! Most all the RN’s I work with and many Providers have Tats too. Dress code is they “can’t be in poor taste”. What the heck does that mean?! Doesn’t it depend on who is eating what? Lol!

Thank you for being here Wise and Grounded Peggy Love. rainbow
