Went on impulse. Was feeling crappy, had the pdf flyer opened in my browser, saw a meeting was happening in 30 minutes, jumped in the car and went.

Spent the entire meeting choking back tears, but managed to mumble something at the end...

They were very welcoming. I don't know how it will help, but I will go back and give it a try.

Oh it will help, you have just joined a bunch of people that understand how you feel and what you are going through. And as the ad says, Therapist $50.00 A group that understands you.....PRICELESS.
Keep going back and you will learn how to cope and care for and find your self

Great step.

Heal well

I drive 45 minutes to my group, and I wouldn't have it any other way. It was my home group until I moved out, and I still go back! wink

So glad you decided to give it a whirl!! Congrats! wink Keep us posted!

Next meeting is Thursday, 8pm.

I'm struggling with all the "god" stuff. I am an atheist and the majority of the of steps refer to "god as you understand him/her". Well, I don't accept the concept of "god" at all, so exactly whom am I supposed to be giving it up to?

I am a recovering catholic. wink God didn't work for me much, either. I used an image of the group at first. Then, I started to make an image of my own higher power complete with Groucho nose and glasses. :-D
