Injustice!

It is a beautiful Saturday morning.  The sky is clear.  The sun is shining.  The hills are green and flowering.  And I have a headache.  What?

So, I went to a meeting this morning.  Where a friend who was in a coma a year ago was celebrating 1 year sober.  At one time, she had 8 or 9 years, but went back out.  Her drinking took her very far - almost to death.  She is so grateful to be sober, it is palpable.

There were two new guys in the meeting who are young and nuts!  I was incredibly grateful that on Saturdays that group is large and strong.  A couple of guys went and sat next to the one who wouldn't shut up.  And they were both surrounded by sober men when the meeting ended.  

I have a full day planned.  I am excited about it.  My daughter is here.  We just ate some waffles for breakfast.  I think I shall take some aspirin for my headache and try to take a half-hour nap in a dark room, and pray that this headache will leave my head.

Happy Sober Saturday Everyone.
XXXOOO

Start the day with a visiting daughter, meeting, waffles, and make a plan--sort of. Great beginning!

But that headache, dammmmit. Make it go away.

So you and your daughter may enjoy the day....

I'm getting good vibes.

I hope you can have a meaningful day with your daughter and that your headache becomes a matter of recent history.

I can relater to needing a nap in a dark place for a headache.A bad headache is the aftermath of a bad seizure and I have to do the same thing.{{{hugs}}} Glad that you had a good morning.

I also get horrible migranes
Over the years they have gotten much worse. It takes days to get back on my feet sometimes.
Not drinking is a good thing thanks for AA

Not fair to have a headache on a Saturday. But hope that some relief comes so that you enjoyed the rest of the day. It sounds good what happened at the AA meeting. The strong helping those who are less strong.
