Thank you everyone for you kind words of welcome back. I am not sure exactly how I am going to use the Blog this time around. For starters however, I thought I would share what I am grateful for today.
- A day of rest yesterday
- The porch is finally almost finished
- A good nights sleep
- A new meeting starts tonight
- My sponsor G
Long time, no see how is everyone.
Right now, I am a codependent mess.
Eating Ourselves to Death
I have a very good friend who is dying
as a direct result of his addiction to food
. He landed in the emergency room over the weekend, unable to breath. Yesterday the cardiologist told him that if he did not change his life style (diet, exercise and use of a CPAP
machine) he could very well die in the next few years
. He told me this dire prediction and then followed with, "but doctors always tell you your going to die
." He said, trying to laugh the whole thing off.Am I crazy
? Do doctors always tell people they are going to die in the next few years if they do not do this or that? My doctor did tell me if I did not lower my cholesterol through diet (lets hear it for fish oil
) she would have to put me on Lipator
. I assumed that somewhere down the line I would be risking death but, she never said anything about a few years.I hate watching people die from their addictions
. I hate being powerless to stop it. I especially hate watching people I love die from their addictions. In my eighteen years in the rooms I have done far, far too much of it.
Our whole family was sick over the weekend. I hate when that happens. Some kind of virus we think. Anyhow today we all seem a whole lot better.

My will doesn't always work so well.
