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...
AdvertisementWhen I first joined Overeaters Anonymous 4 1/2 Months ago I was in a really bad state. My Brother and Grandmother were at loggerheads with each other. This left me stinking thinking and in a bad state. He wanted to go to New York with 'Mates' he knew from Skype.
Then, after a particularly nasty incident, I satrted taking it to my HP. Suddenly thinks started to work out. He went to New Yor...
This is my journey and nobody else's, sure I may have company on this trip, even people who are there for me everyday, but it the end this road is mine alone to walk. Everyones journey through life is different, some have the world handed to the on a platter, but most of us have to climb and claw our way through the days. Ive become a bit of an expert on time during this trip, it has always fille...
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.Here is a poem that I wrote back in 1989 about the meaning of life. Hope you all enjoy it.
I pray that God will bless you
At the start of each new day
And grant you health and happiness
And friends to share your way
As you jouney through this life
To reach that Ultimate Goal
May you find peace and happiness
Deep within your soul
The road is long and narrow
Full of trials and sufferings too
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.
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.

by: vanzmanhang in their, some day it will all change for the betterToday I was dealt a huge kick in the teeth in the form of a letter from the Social Security Agency saying that I can't claim Employment Support Allowance and Carers Allowance together. After a histrionic fit of rage; I had already been hyper after dealing with my Gran in town; I kept saying the mantra 'Live in the Solution' after an OA daily reader yesterday. Then I called the ESA supercesion pho...
Today I have finally been given the missing piece in my life. My Brother passed the Driving Test this morning. He has a slip that will confirm he passed the driving test for the next few weeks until his License arrives in the post. For the time being, he'll have to get a used car; Gentleman's agreement he made with a Turkish Barber from Cookstown who was looking to sell his car; and Insurance. Od...
