My name is Greg I am a grateful, recovering Compulsive Overeater and addict, I was abstinent yesterday.
I am finally starting to feel a hair bit better after 4-5 days of a bad sinus infection. I have an appointment for a CT scan this week, I am hopeful that this will provide some answers either way. I have not been advocating for myself medically. My friend asked me last week where the hell the old Greg was who wasn't afraid to speak up and say what he needed too, he's been missing for a while
I had a decent weekend, yesterday I went with my buddies wife to visit him in rehab. It was good to listen first hand to people in the midst of the struggle and dealing with the fallout from their addictions.
It was tough to hear the pain and suffering, but it reminded me why I am in program, I hope it also helped my buddy to realize that his addiction is going to bring him pain and misery and maybe kill him
I have connected with a fellow OA member and we have a lot in common and our personalities are very much line, I can be rowdy self and talk how I normally talk which isn't appropriate when in meetings or dealing with most people **chuckles** This morning we started an early morning call to do some readings and check in and share, as well as commit anything we need to for the day. I feel pretty positive starting my day off this way.
I have offered before but have been pretty poor on follow up, but if anyone else would like to do this I would be totally open for a quick 5-15 minute call daily or every few days to do readings and check in. It would be a great service to me, and give me a chance to be of service. Drop me an email and lets work out a day/time that’s concrete, I fail when I don't have a concrete plan, its one of my character defects.
