There are now some new technical terms to describe some of our issues in recovery

One of them is #backdraft#  that is when we start applying boundaries, regulating our emotions and doing better self care we sometimes have to deal with even more symptoms 

The other issue of course is when we begin to set boundaries with certain people they resist more 

So for me personally when I push hard on my recovery which I have been able to do this month the results will not ge instant 

I am constantly working on my boundaries. Even the small adjustments are difficult. People do not respond well to boundaries.  One way I had to do boundaries was to be irritable and set boundaries by default. Well tine to throw that one out I am not willing to give people ammunition 

In some ways it can be fun 

When my boundary radar is going off I get to try different responses. Certain people do not let up 

Well now I.have different ways to respond to 

What a gift to have fun in recovery!
