Hello All!

Hi everyone who knows me.  I'm sorry I haven't been around.  Still grieving very heavily plus my father in law is in a very bad way so I'm spending a lot of time helping out there.  Things are not looking good for me.  I have no choice but to sell the house plus I will probably be off the grid for a while.  I have to give up some bills and cable/internet is one that I can do without.  If necessary I can use the computer at the in-laws occasionally.

I hope everyone had a safe and sober holiday.  I'm still sober...my doctor was so shocked today when I told him after he said it was time for my yearly "drug test" to make sure I wasn't using more than I'm supposed to.  I told him when the heck the last time he prescribed anything to me.  He said well I know Joe had a lot of narcotics left.  I told him I gave them to the pharmacy to destroy and that he could test me all he wanted to if that was necessary for his safety of his practice.  So he did...came back and said well, it is pretty obvious you aren't taking anything.  Well duh.... doctors!!!

I guess he probably had reason to doubt...what with the last two months...I can't say that I haven't been taking my ativan....some days it is all that keeps me sane and from crying all day long.  Eventually I will come back and be back to helping others...but right now it is all I can do to keep myself going.

God bless you all.
