I'm 58 years of age. Codependancy can't go on forever. I've worked pretty hard for years. The last Coda meeting I was at I ended my task of selling and representing the CODA literature though my mandate had not yet ended. At the group concious meeting, a week earlier, one of those in the group Concious (administration of the group) let loose with a homophobic remark a week prior. Here I am sitting across from him and I'm bisexual. So I told him. Had to say it twice for it to sink into his thick skull. Anyway he and are I, ours eyes lock and the whole room goes deafeningly quiet. Having done a bit of research and having called the Human Rights Commission, I was informed of having been a victim of illegal discrimination according to Art:10 of the charter of human rights and liberties of the person. I could not make a complaint because I only had his first name and the Commision needs the WHOLE name. I brought it to the group support department of CODA, as in FRENCH CODA. It took him forever to return my call. So who knows what will come of it As I cited the general issue of article 10 and traditions trampled on due to such an ignoramous statement which did have NO mention of any reproachable behavior committed by legitimate CODA members who are GLBT in regards to sexual orientation. So the comment was destructive criticism denounced by CODA approved literature. Thus I did nothing wrong. I was just bisexual! The guy from the group support team is trying to get me to hear more about the issue. Seems like we've been playing telephone tag. Doesn't matter what happens as I already reported French CODA to the registery here that recieves complaints of homophobic (a legal term) victimisation. According to the person's comment GLBT codependants don't deserve to be free of shame the same way hetrosexual codependants are allowed to be. Thus the illegal discrimination although nothing that might make the Commission of Human Rights sit up and take notice. But it is in the registery now though because the support team took so long to get back to me. I'm protected by anonymity as the author of the homophobic comment is protected by anonymoty. And this time I don't care. Some anonymous statements are not meant to be kept anonymous!

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
