    Tuesday, November 4, 2008 | An Inspiring story

    I think we can all agree tonight is a historic night. Regardless of how you feel about Obama I hope we are all inspired by the amazing turnout and the emotional investment in this election we have never seen before.
    Today I was doing rounds at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. It is common to have many folks hanging out in the waiting rooms outside of the surgical ICU waiting for the "5...

    Wednesday, October 10, 2012 | An Inspiring story

    So far, with the help of Narcotics Anonymous, I have been clean since April 27, 2009.  The steps, fellowship, my sponsor, and my higher powers make this possible.  The fight is never over, it's an ongoing process of growth and change.  Gonna keep on keepin' on.

    Full of trials and sufferings too

  • Similar Lives

    Sunday, March 24, 2013

       I have only been a member for a short while, but I have been blown away by all the similarities we all experience and face. I wish I had joined a support group years ago. It helps so much to know that so many are having the same experiences, the same pains, the same prejudices. As I read the different posts, I can say yep, been there. Oh yeah, I had that happen also.
    Most ...

    Saturday, June 1, 2013 | An Inspiring story

    to be ready to face the world with the love God gave us , enjoy life and not think of what has happened in the past because it will only bring you down, and will not allow you to know when its right to stand back on your feet, but this can only be achieved by a partner that you choose out of understanding , someone that is also ready to move to the positive side of life , without no looking back,...

  • To all my friends

    Sunday, October 27, 2013 | An Inspiring story

    Just a line to say I'm living,
    That I'm not among the dead.
    Though I'm getting more forgetful,
    And am messed up in the head.
    For sometimes I can't remember,
    When I stand at the foot of the stairs,
    If I must go up for something,
    Or if I just came down from there.
    So, if it's my turn to write you,
    There's no need in getting sore.
    I may think I've written,
    And I don't want to be a bore.
    So, remember...
