shared my heart at a meeting
I have been avoiding going to enough meetings since my Mom passed away last Sunday because I have been such a mess.
I went this morning and was compelled to share what is really going on with me, that I am NOT fine and that I am afraid I am going to drink.
All I can say is that honesty is a bitch, but boy do I feel better!

That's the way, E. Take it to the meeting and leave it on the table.
All the best.

Elizabeth I just want to offer my sympathies. I think you pay honor to your mom by sharing as you did.
