My heart is heavy.  My mind is heavy.  I’m not drinking, but it’s hard.

I work in a field/position that has been directly affected by the school shooting in Connecticut.  I was at a conference most of the weekend – it was good, but demanding.  My car was broken in to.  Everything is okay, but it’s hard to sit in the driver’s seat and know that some meth-head took some of my stuff and knows my name and address.

I’m okay.  I’m calm.  I’m hurting for myself and for others.  It’s just a heavy time.

  1. Huge, gigantic hugs. If it’s any consolation, the thief probably just wanted your money and won’t be back. I know that’s hard to feel right now but it will all be okay. We’re here for you.

  2. Hi abstaining in august,

    i am so sorry i didn’t post when you were in your car. you had already gotten two good replies by the time i read your post. But, that should not have mattered. you have been helping me for awhile and i should have done something. some day i hope to repay the favour. please keep posting. I am cutting down now, looking to get through a parent viist and then start my abstinence program on Jan 1.

    talk to you soon, MB

  3. Oh no. I hope you’re feeling a little better and things are looking up. It is/was a terribly tragic, horrible thing. I think everyone all over the world has felt their pain so being directly in the midst of it… Well, you are doing great for staying sober. Keep it up. Wishing you a happy, safe, sober holiday season. x

  4. Hey friend,

    Just checking in on you as you haven’t posted in awhile. Are you ok? What’s going on? I hope you made it through the new year sober but am here for you regardless. Reach out and let us know how you’re doing.
