thats a searious problem then. as a sponsor, i have a responsibilty that the sponsee understands each step and the principle behind it. this isnt a race. its a journey.
ya got some prayers for ya and i hope yer doin better today.

Perhaps she has so much time sober she's entirely forgotten what it is like to be where you are.

Sometimes a 6 year-old can understand a 5 year-old better than an 80 year-old can. Sure, the 80 year-old was 5 once too, but likely she doesn't actually remember it very well.

Getting sober is tough. AA can be tough. Step work is definitely WORK! You need your sponsor to be on your side. I don't mean giving you an easy pass or letting you get away with not doing the work but they should guide you and help you find your own path in sobriety. It sounds tough for you at the moment but it also sounds like you got away from a sponsor who wasn't right for you. Hope you find a new one soon that suits you and your recovery.x
