I need some advice. My friend took me to AA and she suffers from a personality disorder. I know this because her counsellor (who is also my counsellor) told me her diaganosis. There is no medication for her disorder only lots of therapy. Her disorder makes her crave attention and make false suicide attempts. When I am at the meetings with her she makes me very angry because now I only see the disorder and not the person. She is constantly seeking attention and I believe she is not really alcoholic. I believe she only goes to get attention from the group. Please advice me on how to achieve serenity in this situation. I want to forgive her but the anger keeps getting in the way. I have to constantly remind myself that she is only acting this way because of her disorder and it keeps me from focusing on the group and the AA messages. It is a real distraction. I don't have a lot of tolerance for her. I am new in the program and I find she is a real hinderance in my own sobriety. Am I letting myself be controled by another member?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
