** Thank you for your sympathy wishes **

Sad face crying

This blog has been silent for the past 3 weeks because, as some of you are already aware, my boyfriend of 16 years died of a drug overdose on 11/18/13.  No one was aware he was shooting up.  He hid it well & didn’t reach out to anybody.  And it saddens me to think that the only time I’ll ever get the truth from him about what he was using, is when the toxicology report comes in.   His funeral service was on December 1st & a few days later I was invited to his non-Al-Anon home group where I heard something new

WHAT I LEARNED: “The Steps are essentially a way to deal with not getting what I want.”  I’ve never heard it put so succinctly.  And what I want more than anything is to have the love of my life back.   But knowing what I know now about all the pain he was in & how much he must have been suffering, would I really wish that?  How selfish of me.      Instead I wish him peace & I hope he can finally get a good night’s rest.

Thank you for all the cards, emails, calls, texts, voice-messages, & even comments sent to me thru this blog!  I truly appreciate everyone reaching out to me during this dark time to let me know I’m not alone.  I will start posting new entries & be back in the rooms very soon!
