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.

Need some prayers please

I just discovered one of my closest sisters went out. She is was put in the hospital.

I am asking for your prayers at this time.

I feel so helpless right now and am so pissed off at this Dz in so many ways. As I was walking out the front door of where I work earlier today there lay a case of Budwiser. Apparently the owners are celebrating the Leap Year by celebrating and cooking outside. I want kick that case of beer right now.

I am in shock, fighting tears and trying to keep my composure.

Thank you for listening and your support.

I am grateful that A is still trudjing with me and pray that M will come back. I am grateful that I am pissed off but do not have the obsession to drink. I am grateful that you are here with me and understand first hand how UGLY this Dz is.

I, too, am sorry to hear of such news. Sometimes it hits just too close to home. We wonder why we got it and they didn't. We may never know.

Stay close to your program and surround yourself with those who love you and understand and you will be okay.

Prayers all around.

I'm so sorry.

It is okay to cry. Better to have the feelings than to stuff them down.

My prayers are with you.

Dear God,

May Sober Chick and all of us in recovery
be at all times, both now and forever,
a protector for those without protection
a guide for those who have lost their way…

Bless those around us who provide support,
love, and care to our bodies and souls in need.
Strengthen our faith. Give us courage to face our fears
and know your love and protection will brush aside the suffering.

For those who have been rejected and despised;
whose lives are torn and disrupted
those who are hurting and destroyed by the pain.
Please give them willingness to surrender to you God
And fill them with hope once again
and the beautiful light of your love.

Amen

Oh my, I am reading all of your messages and I have tears in my eyes. I am so touched by your kindness and truly appreciate your presence, support and love.

I am not alone, and I love every one of you. I wish I could hug each of you right now -- I am sending cyber hugs.

Update:
My sister is falling hard. She is living in desperation, and her situation has gotten uglier. I am going to a meeting tonight with A and a newcomer. I will miss Ms presence but still need to walk this raod of recovery.

Thank you for all that you do, because of you I do not do this alone. We do it together. I am grateful for your words and prayers.
