I am grateful for the Public holiday this weekend I had a lovely weekend in Melbourne, went to loads of weekends and did not get anxious about anything, not even work.

Its Monday afternoon eddie and I its a Public Holiday tomorrow, so I will hear in the morning. I hope your holding up ok.

This weekend I realised I cannot sy in NA meetings that I have 29 years clean as I have only been sober for 9 11/2 months. I thought this would be a big drama for me but it isn't.

No longer sure about living out here on my own in a Big unfinished house after 4 days in Melbourne.

Don't worry, Kevin!! We can celebrate your upcoming 30 years here on the Party thread, OK?

Love and hugs,
Eddie

Hi Everybody! Sounds like everyone had an awesome weekend. I don't feel so grateful today. I feel overwhelmed. I guess that I am grateful that being overwhelmed doesn't mean I have to use or drink.

You're welcome, Kevin!!

I am grateful that another pharmacist from the Program interviewed where I work today. I hope he comes to work with us! I know him from our monthly meeting and think he's pretty neat.

Also grateful for being able to have the window open again. The weather has been really nice and there is a wonderful breeze coming in.

Love and hugs,
Eddie

Hey, L, Richie, and Kevin!! I miss Sherry .

But I am truly grateful this morning. For many things, especially the fact that a new pharmacist who is also in recovery will be starting work with us TOMORROW!! He's a great guy and I think he'll fit in well. I just hope he can deal with the on-call stuff.

I am also grateful for my monthly "IPA (International Pharmacists Anonymous)" meeting and the other pharmacists in that group. We had a nice meeting last night and I appreciate all the support they give me.

Love and hugs,
Eddie

Hi Everybody,
I am grateful for the people in the world who are tolerant. I am grateful I have ceased fighting everyone and everything.

I am grateful for my Caduceus group again this morning. When I shared last night about all the problems I've been having, one member told me afterwards that he thought my situation was "ungodly." teehee. It is pretty crazy, I guess.

Also, I'm grateful that...(drum roll, please)...I'm getting a raise!! Man, I love my boss. He has been an absolute angel to me. He is even going to my hearing next week, too. Thank you, HP, for putting him in my life and giving me a second chance!!

Love and hugs,
Eddie
