Well to be fair, I fear living with me makes it a bit of a flaw. I can be too sarcastic and cynical to those stuck sharing living quarters with me.

Actually to see my humor come back and hear myself cutting up and laughing again is a true sign I am feeling more myself. Thanks for the compliment as I do try to be a little funny here on SR as so often cracking up over my situation helps me detach. Thanks for the compliment Firesprite and Miss Fix It!

am sending positive energy your way, codejob. some of the most amazing people I have ever met have been RA's and their spouses (who were also in recovery).

awesome, just totally awesome, inspiring people. they give off this energy, and feel like tuning forks when I am around's almost a spiritual experience to share such healthy, balanced, and positive harmony in their presence.

I happen to know personally the hell they have been through. experienced much of it with them. I am aware they have stumbles, arguments, disagreements, struggles, leftover issues......but the anchor they share is far more powerful.

it is wonderful.

oh, and something I've noticed about these humble folks, is that they really don't respond well to being praised about what they have achieved together.

someone once told me that it is a way to keep humble and to help keep the recovery not get too puffed up about it. keep it real, and all.

your post gave me good thoughts....thank you.

Yes sadly I keep waiting for amends. But perhaps mine will come out first. I think I will reassess in the summer. To see my progress and if anything changes.

Surprisingly I got flowers today. Not much is in bloom outside, so they are extra cheery and the scent is pungent.

He took my car in too for service. He is definitely an acts of service guy.
