"There is nothing written, but what you picture in your mind, that says that is too late to start over: Clarity in what we want, trust in ourselves, faith in knowing everything is possible, hope in the future, and a spirit that never quits is all we need. Go ahead, break through, define your future, you can do it!"

"Find something deep inside you that will propel you in doing something meaningful for you. Dig deep down for that love, anger, hate, or whatever it takes to prove to yourself that you had it in you all along. It can be done." Written in 2014 by Dr. Maloney Hunter-Lowe --- Virginia

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful, recovering COE and I was abstinent yesterday

Not a bad day in all, I am still not feeling well and I am getting sick and tired of being sick and tired. I am taking my meds as I am supposed too. I am trying to stay as hydrated as I can, get as much sleep as I can, and take other actions to help keep myself physically healthy. Yet certain health issues still plague me, and I do not believe they are weight related.

I am growing tired of calling my DR, well Nurse Practitioner only to be told to go to the clinic. Its the same crap over and over again, either they say to go home and tough it out, or they give me antibiotics and send me on my way. The symptoms seem to get worse with each episode and I am not happy with the care I am getting. I am just unsure what action to take, what tests do I ask for? What can I do to find a solution? If the people I depend on for care aren't taking it seriously or don't have any answers it leaves me in a difficult situation. I realize I live in a small town, I realize they are busy but got dammit its my life and health we are dealing with. I will pray to my HP and see if any answers some while I try to figure out what to do.

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering COE, I was abstinent yesterday however my behavior was slippery.

A taste of something here, and extra little something there. I pushed the boundaries of abstinence without breaking them and I realize I cannot continue to do this or I will binge/slip again.

I am doing step work with a sponsor today, this will help me move forward. I also need to do the work in another program that my addiction is running wild in.

I now see the connection between all my addictions. If 3 of them are under control so to speak, and one of them is running rampant then I am blindly treading on thin ice. Well not blindly anymore, not I realize that if one thing is out of order they are all out of order. I cannot be at peace physically, mentally, and spiritually if one of my demons is tormenting me. In the past the why has eluded me, I could not figure out why I was so miserable because 3 of my addictions were quiet, I guess I did not give the 4th one the respect it deserve, I under estimated it.

Today I will work to bring peace and harmony to my life working the program, using the tools and doing my action plan
