I have decided to change my name...To Eddie... because of a sugguestion from another member that made a lot of sense. Getteddie is a name that is being creul to myself...triggering memiors of the no one will ever get me again. I don't really feel that bad about it anymore...wasn't my fault..just a hard part of my life...and I don't want to live it forever!!!

Hi Again Eddie,
I just sent you a private note as though you were a new member. I like the name change and what it means for you.
Much peace to you.

I asked him about this law he spoke of, he said,,, *watch* he then asked the others to share about their lives,,, the others talked of how things were for them, how things worked in their lives,,, and as they believed, it was so.

Super, super, super.

Names are how we see the world, and what we call ourselves (and others) can tell you so much.

You know, back before I started recovery, I never like my own real name at all . . . it turned out that was because I never really liked me at all.

Again, Super Eddie! New name, New perspective, New life.

I actually thought about changing my real name (last name) for a long time, but haven't done it because I don't know what I would change it to. My dad always made such a big deal out of our last name and he disgraced it so bad, I don't want a thing to do with it. Still haven't given up on a real name change either. I was thinking of Mickey Mouse, but that is already taken.
