Hey guys!  It seems like forever since I've been here!  I have been soooooo busy that I haven't had a chance to get online much.  Some of you have been a great help to me over recent months while I have struggled with my obsession for my friend at work.  I wanted to share the good news with you.  In the past, the only way that I could stop obsessing about someone was to get really really hurt or to start obsessing about someone new.  My obsession for my friend went into overdrive during the summer, but I was able to keep myself from calling her and aggravating her.  School started, and I knew that I would be compelled to spend as much time with her as I could, but I determined to try my best to avoid her so that I wouldn't be an aggravation to her.  We are now 9 weeks into the school year, and I can say without any doubt that my obsession for her is over.  I guess it was finally conquered through my own form of cbt…  We are still friends…..I can stop by and see her now without obsessing about it.  I have been to see her about 3 times since school has started.  My struggle now has been to find something to occupy my mind.  It's not a problem until I lay down to go to sleep, and then I find myself searching for something to think about.  I still haven't quite got the hang of being able to just clear my mind and not think about anything.  In addition to all this, the depression that I have been struggling with since Februrary 2009 is gone as well.  Things were pretty bleak there for awhile, but somehow, God got me through it.  I don't want to ever go through something like that again, but I know that I am a better, stronger person for it.  Maybe my experience will allow me to help someone else that is suffering with something similar someday.  Anyway, thanks to all of you for your prayers and support.  They meant a great deal to me when I needed them most!  You are all great people, and I am glad that you are my friends!  Things will be much less hectic starting in November, and I hope to be able to get online more and chat with some of you.  I hope that everything is going well for you, and that you all have a wonderful weekend!  God bless you all!   🙂
