Seeking sobriety has been at the forefront of my being. Without sobriety, I wouldn’t be able to live presently and plan for tomorrow. I know the stay at home orders is tough on all of us. For me, not having a job or quiet hobbies has been a challenge, most of my hobbies involve sport and being with others. I don’t foresee the at home orders to let up anytime soon.
I’ve just been reinstated on disability (yay!) and presently seeking low stress employment. What to do?
- Move to another country with a lower cost of living, work, save, and have an easier lifestyle
- Travel and seek enlightenment
- Stay status quo and look for low stress job / stay at home hobbies
Ok , nvm I’m batty!
I use the SoberTime app and InTheRooms app to keep the support and focus of my sobriety. I also was going hiking not just because it was required in my job but because there weren’t crowds
Moving to another country can be pretty stressful and hard if you don’t have a good bank behind you. Even in cheaper Asia it’s not the easiest thing to do. You lose your support networks, access to levels of medicine etc. I think it’s admirable you see the need to change your lifestyle but maybe something closer to home first to get on your feet so to speak.
@longhorn21: I wish we lived in a smaller world and I could just hike into the next city, country. Where are my moon boots!
@rogueone: Baby steps sound more reasonable. Access to care and meds is a big one, I’m pretty much set up here. I feel like I’m running from the boogetyman sometimes, it’s hard to continually apologize/ avoid people around me.
Do your cricket teammates know of your dz?
Dude same! I love hiking so much if I could end up in a different city or state every time I did it would be awesome!
Hey matey. Some know I’m sz. They don’t know what it means but I was a captain of a side there when I was psychotic so the old heads remember me pretty psychotic. I’m pretty open but it’s still not worth telling some. They just have no idea.
