Sober Chick

Here are the unleashed pages of a sober chick in recovery. My journey (date of sobriety) began on June 13th, 2005. For 29 years of my life I was spiritually sick. Emotinally defeated by drunken black-outs, bulimic binging and purging episodes and self-mutilation, I finally surrendered.

Miracles

hAAppy HNT to all.

It is amazing when I ask God for His guidance He comes thru and I think His Angels are working OT around some open wounds in my soul. I went to a new meeting on Tuesday, was about to leave after waiting and seeing no one was around. This is when the magic started . . .

I started to walk back to my truck when this woman popped her head out of her car. She had a welcoming smile, I asked her if she was here for the meeting. Thank you Laury, my new friend. "L" has 7 years of sobriety and that was her first OA meeting ever. Coincidence, NO WAY. We were suppose to meet at that very moment. I also met another person relapsing back to the BPs. Our struggles at this time are parallel. We exchange #s.

So last night a resentment came on stronger than ever. It wanted to take me out. I somehow managed to get out of myself "falsely" by shopping. I called a few sober sisters but all were out and about. Well, I am asking God here for some guidance. Alexis called me back while I was in the store, and she was on her way to the AA meeting at the Women's club. I was too (but was early so took a detour to my fav girlie cloth store -- yah, shopping another addiction).

We both have not been to the meeting at the Women's Club in eons. Somehow we both we suppose to be there, and I needed to see her. The speaker was great, I had a hard time staying out of my head but heard exactly what I needed to, honestly, I did. Then I got to see the smile of my new friend I met at the OA meeting struggling with bulimia too.

In addition to all this I have been getting emails from some of my cyber recovery friends and am so grateful for this.

HI!

You appear to have this gift of seeing even the little detailed snapshots of good things, while viewing the big picture as well. That is indeed a gift. This is all so true. I am grateful that you are here. Way to go! Keep coming back! :o)
