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.
I got out May 2! Yay....life is good. I have been clean and sober 3 months on the 20th. I go to my counseling, celebrate recovery and spend loads of time with family and selective friends. I am making new sober friends to grow with and want to meet more. I am totally happy and grateful to be alive and doing so well. I can't wait to see what the future has...
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,...

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.
