hi all,

its been a number of months since i've visited malesurvivor. had to re-register here, i was guy43 - jer. i'm still jer oddly enough.

been busy/slow/busy/nuts in my new country living life in minnesota since moving here from pennsylvania last fall. my move here has for the most part been a good change. most significant has been shift away from abuse recovery work and therapy, a much needed respite. going on 2.5 yrs sober!!! life is good. been feeling a need to reconnect with fellow survivors, so here i am.

it's good to see some familiar names on the forums and so many new participants. congrats to thedean on becoming a board member (have u shaken things up yet?).

hoping to hear from old and new friends,
jer

Hi Jer, good to hear from you again.

And another year older as well, I'm going backwards now ;\)

Hello Jer,

Good to hear from you. Congratulations on your 5 years of sobriety! And glad to hear the move has gone successfully. I think of you when I visit the board, so it's great to have such good news of you. Thanks for posting.

Wow, Jer, long time no see. Last I heard you were hoping to get to MN in time for maybe a Sunday night dinner. I didn't see you there. Did you make it for any of the conference?

Glad to hear that you're doing well. I hope to hear more from you again. I still have the little story that you, Don, Mikey, and I wrote in a thread last summer saved to a file on my PC.

Thanks,

Joe

this is from "words of wisdom" - selected quotes from his holiness the dalai lama, on a daily calendar, jan 31, 2004. seems to fit a lot of things...

"my mental state, i think, is quite peaceful, quite calm. if there's some sad news, some heart-breaking news that comes, for a short moment, i am very disturbed, very sad, but then it goes. so like an ocean, the waves come and go, come and go."
