    So very happy for you, Musicman! I always loved reading your journal. You're a great guy and it sounds like you've met someone who's a really good fit for you. I agree that having a partner you can be vulnerable with is really powerful. What impresses me most about you is your fortitude. You took control of your life and worked your plan. If that isn't inspirational, I don't know what is!!!
    Take care, man. Stay in touch with us.

    Hi, I thought I’d reach out to a few folks on the forum. Seeing as my attempts to figure this all out all by myself haven’t been too successful, I thought it best to give the group approach my best shot, and hopefully help a few other folks along the way as well as myself.

    Musicman 2.0 This is not a sprint, but rather a marathon...

    Hello all. Just stopping by to send love and encouragement to everyone. I'm still PMO free and I'm so grateful for that.

    Also wanted to share that got a bad medical diagnosis recently and I'm having a hard time processing the news. Not having control over my health im feeling a strong pull into PMO to feel a sense of immediate gratification and control. Mentally its a battle for sure but I'm really working hard to continue using the communication skills I've learned to stay connected with my trusted friends and wife. My natural tendency is to withdraw and isolate which leads me right to PMO. Just as always im taking things one day at a time. Been doing a lot of daily meditation and mindfulness exercises, as well as 4, 7, 8 breathing which has really helped me stay grounded when i have panic attacks...

    One day at a time...

    Much love

    Echoing Cali's thoughts here, Musicman. Focus on battling your medical issue instead of giving energy to PMO. That would just drain your spirit at a time when you really need it.
    Sending you positive thoughts.
