todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
to hear some Experience, Strength & Hope from my therapist at the mid-day AA meeting yesterday
that I can be of help to others when asked
that Hayden and I were able to work out a major difference of opinion which might have ended our friendship
for a pretty good diagnosis/prognosis from a Vascular Surgeon regarding my Peripheral Artery Disease. Surgery will not be needed because of the improvement which is due to the fact that (a) I stopped smoking last year (b) I am getting daily exercise. When I began working out in early June, I could only do 5 minutes on the treadmill at a very slow speed before my calves would totally lock up and become inoperable. Today, I can walk as long as I want at a much quicker pace with minimal soreness, if any.
I have overwhelming feelings of feeling useless and unwanted at times. I am grateful that I can stay sober through these times. I'm also grateful that I have an appointment with my therapist today. LOL
