I seem to be climbing out of the deep dark abyss I fell into sometime on Tuesday afternoon. I expected a crash after the race, but this was a lot more than I expected.
The man I have been dating (but not talking about) called last night to tell me he has taken a job in another city and will be moving. Gee.
I am heading out of here for a 6:30 a.m. meeting. I need to sit for an hour in a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. I will probably go to the 5:30 meeting tonight after work too. Last night a sponsee wanted to have dinner with me, so I did that instead of going to my usual Thursday night meeting. I am grateful for her and the ability to sit and share with another woman in AA.
"We sit in AA meetings and listen, not only to receive something ourselves, but to give the reassurance and support which our presence can bring. If our turn comes to speak at a meeting, we again try to carry AA's message. Whether our audience is one or many, it is still Twelfth Step work." -- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 110
