Got a friendly note from SandyZ. Correcting me/reminding me what Al Anon is really about. They exist to help family/friends deal with living with an alcoholic. More of a support network for all those affected by the collateral damage. It will be much better for me to go into that meeting remembering that. Al Anon is to fix me, not her. Iíve probably sustained more damage than Iím willing to admit. Itís a guy thing. We shrug off those mere flesh wounds. Until they get infected and gangrenous and eventually kill us for lack of attention. Yup, guys are a smart bunch all right.
So Iím going to the doc to get my wounds healed. Or at least looked at. Even the ones I wonít admit I have. Hope they can find them. Think Iím so numb I never felt the hits. Donít know where to tell them to look.
Thanks Sandy. And thanks to Zuzus Petals for even suggesting Al Anon to begin with. Time to go get fixed.
