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.

Sober Chick

A while back the beautiful JJ sent me a link of a sober chick hat . . .

Isn't that the coolest. So I drew up the little guy myself. :)

Today I am grateful for the power of prayer. I got a call last night from her very loving boyfriend (who has stood by her side, I have been praying for him too) and my friend "M" has improved a great deal in a small amount of time. She is not in the ICU anymore. I can't wait to see her. You know what has happened? It was an opportunity for spiritual growth. My HP Rocks!!!


***I am very grateful for having a job. Regularly they set up dates for blood donation which I think is very cool. We have warehouses all across the country, each month if no one gets hurt each employee recieves 20 bucks! I work at the corporate head quarters and share an office with 3 product developers, one being my supervisor. I laugh so much here, today is no different. My face muscles are getting lots of exercise today. Just found out that we are getting flu shots this month. I am very grateful to be here, just wanted to get this out . . .

I was hired here 2 months before my last drunk. Before that I was fired from a good job. I was very active in my Dz and drinking on the job even passing out in my truck at times . . . I was let go for my behavior having everyone walk on eggshells when I was around. I could not grasp how fortunate I was to have a job at that time, I was spindling out of control towards my rock bottom (getting fired was not it, I needed more), today is different . . . ***
