Yesterday I went to a meeting at my old workplace. It was nice to visit with some friends after the meeting. But the oddest thing is that as I drove up the road to the hospital, as I had for over 17 years, there was no joy that filled my heart. There was no excitement. There was just a sort of sick feeling. The good things there, for me, are in the past. I have wonderful memories of when the hospital was still large, I had many friends there, and seemed to have a good career ahead of me. In the last 5 years, all that changed. I thank God I was able to leave - because it was difficult.
I think my blog has turned into a bit of a bore - with me perseverating on change. Oh, and how tired I am. But the change in my life is massive. It is not only my workplace and how that has affected my schedule and sleep routine, but I also am no longer able to get to the AA meeting I picked up during the week. Mind you, I didn't like and don't much miss it... but I am still figuring out my meeting schedule too. It's weird to be 60 years old, 27 years sober, and have everything be new again. But it is good.
Gotta go. I hope you all have a wonderful, sober day - and I hope I do too. By the grace of God, I will likely stay sober. xoxoxo, MC
