Weaving my personal recovery using the fabric of Emotions Anonymous and the healing strands of Alanon.
I'm learning H.O.W. to calm the chaos when my "dry" drunk wreaks havoc.

Glad to be back~
I have been posting as I could, from various locations in the Pacific Northwest, from Idaho to Seattle, but not used to any of the computers I borrowed along the way, I decided after last Friday, to just wait until I got home to get up to date.
We did not visit with my mother or father on this trip, though we came so close to their home, outside of Seattle.
Maybe it was for the best. Now we can look back at our trip and NOT say, "It was a good vacation, but...."
I am a member of Emotions Anonymous, which adapts AA's 12 steps for recovery from alcoholism, to recovery from emotional illness. Sojourning in Al-anon, a program for family members of recovering alcoholics, has helped me in dealing with my family, which was impacted by borderline personality disorder. Feel free to read!
