    Putting Down The Baby

    I am finally putting down the baby………….I was almost 68 years old, and I am finally putting putting her down!  I finally realized that it was time, you think?  But it took a real “thump” on the head (or was that the heart?) to come to this conclusion!  Rachel>[1...

    ....

    Went. Past tense. I went every week, sometimes multiple times a week, read every day, had a sponsor, etc. for 6 months or so. It helped....for awhile. I'm honestly not sure why I stopped going. I thought I was ready for Step 4, my sponsor thought it was too early, and that's...

    Mother/Daughter Relationship

    Curious.  From a child I always felt a sort of distance from my mother (hard to explain this feeling), but I know the feeling I had was real and still very real.  For years I had convinced myself it was me, that perhaps I was very over sensitive.   I am...
