My outfit today. I’ve gained at least five pounds! Five more to reach my first recovery goal weight :/
I got new silicone plugs for the upcoming Winnipeg winter and they have skulls on them. Not that that will help my face at all - I think I’ll have to start wearing a balaclava outside once it gets colder.

The known* (canon) women Flag Officers in Starfleet.
Thanks to many contributors at Memory Alpha for the information, and TrekCore for the screencaps.
* Some women flag officers who appeared in the background may have been missed because they or their rank insignia were not clearly visible. There are also several flag officers mentioned by family name only whose gender is unknown.
These photos are taken 62 days apart.
As of today I am 62 days clean and (a bit more) serene.
Change is possible, but I won’t say it’s easy.
I won’t say that there aren’t times when I want to go back.
But that life that any addict feels compelled to return to, thinking that it wasn’t so bad?
Remember, that’s highlight reel thinking.
A life taken over by addiction is hell.
Recovery is possible, and it is worth it.
Metal face making silly faces.
My eyebrows are half grown out because I’ve been being lazy.
It just hit me again
As it does sometimes
That I am here.
I am free.
I did a scary thing and now I’m here.
I fought and now I’m away from that life.
I’m with my family.
People care for me.
People care if I’m not well.
I have my space.
I live for myself.
I need only take care of myself.
I can sleep when I want.
I have money for myself.
I’m in a place where people treat me well and with respect.
I worry about my own recovery without suspicions and being let down and enabled and guilted.
I’m not guilted.
I’m not afraid.
I control me and I’m not afraid.
And that makes me happy.
