Todays pop culture's 'slang' is very confusing to me as well...
I found a site that does a very intersting job of explaining this
stuff, it does get pretty awful in it's de>

Well I don't know if this will make sense either!?

Sometimes life is like falling into a blackberry bush!

Somedays, you have the right clothes on, so you just bounce out the other side without a scratch!

Next day you can fall into the same bush, and because you are wearing different clothes, or the wind is in a different direction, you get caught in the branches, and you get scratched to bits by the thorns. You can still get up and walk away, but next time you walk near that bush you remember not to fall in it!

On a really bad day, you forget that the bush is there, fall into it, realise you aren't wearing any clothes, get scratched getting out of the bush and realise that you have just stepped into an adjacent bush that has more and sharper thorns, the scratches get infected and you feel really bad for a while.

Next time you go past, you are really careful, but notice that there are ripe berries on the bush. You pick them and eat them and they are good.

To me, that's a bit like what recovery is about. Somedays it's good, somedays it's not!

Best wishes ...Rik (hope that doesn't sound too crazy).

It all makes sense.

Being heard and being understood is so important. It makes me feel real, like I am really here. Don't know why it makes any difference but it does.

I understand about not wanting things fixed sometimes too. For me when someone comes up with a'solution' it means they haven't heard me and want me to be different than I am. When young when I said I felt bad I was always told I was alright...or if I needed something I was told I didn't.

Steve- I'll give it a go!

Steve/Dan - Thanks for understanding what I meant, when I wasn't too sure that I'd said what I meant myself!

Best wishes ...RIk

Sorry Markk, "the shit" does mean its good. Maybe I should say "far out" or "groovy" and then maybe you'll understand LOL. Just kidding. Seriously though, I do notice a difference in the way I feel. I think I'm going to look into it even more.
