Back To Rehab!!

Okay, not really...

I went to pick up a friend who recently relapsed.  She got into a rather prestigious facility known worldwide and spent 28 days getting her shit together.  At least I hope she has her shit together.

She has pretty much hit bottom and now has to start from square one today.  But that is the true idea of an addicts day.  If we don't wake up right away and "admit we are <insert addiction here> and our lives had become unmanageable," then we are starting our day on the wrong foot.  So quite literally we have to start each day at square one.

My wife is working overnights this month and I pretty much hate it.

Did I forget to mention that Carolyn and I got married?  Yeah, I guess it has been a long time since I posted here but we tied the knot on May21st, 2011.  It was a (relatively) small service and reception.  Things have gotten better and better each day since.  Except this working overnight thing.  But I guess we have to make ends meet and this is one way to do it.

More later, I promise...

Back to writing.

Distress brings another post.

A family member has been given a death sentence medical diagnosis.  Now it is a matter of time and treatment.  The best guess given is anywhere from 55 weeks to 24 months.  My goal in this is to not mourn the living but live each day to my best abilities.  I also need to include this family member as much as I am allowed and all the people associated with this person.

Along the same lines a co-worker is losing a child to cancer.  It is only a matter of time.  Losing a child this way is not in my area of comprehension.  Parents should not bury their children.  I don't know what to do say or think.  I have them all in my prayers. 

More writing to come.
