“ I would rather go through life sober, Believing I am an alcoholic, Then go through lifeDrunk trying to convince myself I am not.”-Anonymous (It may be anonymous, but… It really sounds like a “Gregsonism”)
SOUPER SUNDAY With the one and only Gregson
Went to bed at 9 AM and woke up at 3:47 AM and said hell no and actually slept until 4:47 AM. So that’s good. I ate string cheeses, a handful of cocoa puffs and a spoonful of peanut butter. Lots of new ladies arrived three older alcoholics and one young fentanyl addict. Lots of the young people are fentanyl addicts. Nine women are 40+ all alcoholics here. So they are now 13 women. Mia and Olivia leave on Wednesday.
Joyce Meyer said, “when you have a problem, ladies you don’t have to worry so much we are allowed to enjoy life.“
Well, isn’t that a wonderful thought. Something, I can’t seem to do is not worry. Maybe I should try! I actually prayed last night on my hands and knees elbows on bad hands clap praying for my Connor and begging for a sign from Mike. I just broke down and cried.
I still have stickers/thorns on the bottom of my feet but slowly they’re making their way out, they don’t hurt as bad as they did two weeks ago! So I guess that’s positive.
Declan who is a famous artist on TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube is working on Connor‘s graduation card for me. I started it, but he will finish and help what I can do!. I’m working on a Mother’s Day card for Connor and write my son a letter.
Drinking Folgers coffee and actually enjoying it. I want to say how sad that is, but now I am where I’m supposed to be!
OK there’s something I need to get off my chest and find peace with.
Mike said “no contact “fine. However, they must have told him about how he would attain a weekly report on my treatment. “I” being an adult over the age of 18, must give him access. That said he would never have been told protocol. When I asked what or what not I would, Who I would allow any information to, of course it would be Mike. The first reason, he’s my husband. The second reason, the most important, he is “my person“, as we were and have been (since we Met) friend’s first. The third reason,And I will say the most important reason, I know better than playing a game of tit for tat with that man, it is a dangerous game, One no one can win! That is one hell of a game of cat and mouse. Mike can play that game all day long and it really scare me to play that game.
So that motherfucker knew exactly I would! And I knew he knew I would.
So we had to get two admissions report. Kendra, my therapist, doesn’t read any of the clinicians, psychiatric, psychologist, nurses reports until after our first individual meeting because she doesn’t want to assume who you are. However, I asked her to because I wanted to know about being served restraining orders, divorce papers, etc. So back to what she (Kendra) found in the intake paperwork. They gave very descriptive words on how I arrived, and what the fuck. All of it was OK – so to speak – as I wasn’t myself, broken, a shell of me, you know! This is what fucking pissed me off…
I should probably first explain that they hire people who are recovered addicts not that they aren’t qualified to do a job they are given – just kinda – some not all – are dumb – too harsh – not as educated or not worldly so to speak.
They actually wrote and used the word disheveled! My Lord, seriously! I can think of 1 million adverbs to describe myself, but disheveled. My sweet Jesus – someone needs a damn dictionary! Even Kendra looked at me and said, “what!“
OK my rants are over!
