Hey there All!!!!
Wassup??? Hope everyone is doing well out there. Doing pretty good on this end. Can't say that I've got no complaints, but I can say I like not complaining about 'em!
Lets see.....guess I should give ya'll a little lowdown on what's going on round my part of the world. I'm still in TC...got approved for a 60 day stint. Like Dallas told ya'll, I've been approved for Chem-free living, which means I'll still live at the TC but I'll be able to have a job, a cell phone, weekend passes and some of that other stuff that I used to take for granted like TV's, newspapers, alarm clocks, curling irons and so on. I'll still be in a structured environment and frankly I think that's pretty great. When you've been sheltered for a while, the "real" world is a little over-whelming. For example, since I'm a rehab oldtimer now, I was assigned to go to Wal-mart and fill the other clients lists. Holy cow.... I damned near went into relapse mode!!!!
Normal people are nuts!!!!
Or maybe it's just been too long since I was in a department store sober.
Gotta go to court this Wednesday....trying not to anticipate or worry about the outcome. Gonna take this one day at a time and trust that whatever happens will be exactly what is supposed to happen, ya know?
Anyhoo....Hi JR!! Hope you're doing well! Thank you so much for posting my letters and for taking the time to write to me and just think of me. I don't know if you have any idea how much that means to me, and I doubt I could adequately express it, but it does mean a great deal.
And John!!!! Thank you for those good thoughts! They are much appreciated and probably went farther than easier of us realized. Know that I have warm thoughts for you as well and look forward to bugging you on a regular basis!! Take care of yourself so that I can do just that.
And Patrickkkkkkkkkkkkk! How awesome to hear from you! Thank you for the good wishes and know that they are returned tenfold. And just so you know, TC is treatment center. As for being your next miracle, since I've never been much for making promises that I'm not sure I can keep.....How 'bout I be your next friend instead cuz I know that that's a promise I can keep.....no matter what happens, no matter where I am!!
Guess I'd better wrap this up cuz I gotta get back to the nutward soon.
Much love to all and bug ya again soon!!
