There's blood on the streets it's up to my ankles...



As inspired by Anonymous Alcoholic... Today I gave blood for the first time in a really long time. It really felt good to do something for someone other than myself. That, and they gave me some free cookies.

Free cookies are a good cheer up.

I'm glad you tried Al-Anon. I think the advice to try other meetings is good. Just like AA meetings have different personalites, I'm sure Al-Anon meetings do as well. Some will suit you better than others. I also liked the comment about the fact that Al-Anon is for you vs. the NA being about "them". It's often harder when you are the one required to do the work and look inside. Just a thought to consider.

You're doing fine. If all else fails, eat another cookie.

Good for you giving blood! And thanks for sharing about the NA and Al Anon meetings. I'm glad you found someone you have something in common with. I find I'm making new friends since I joined AA too.
