future tripping

My AH is having I think age-related physical issues. It is so easy to think about how long he is going to be on this earth. I have been crying almost nonstop. It might be that I am so tired as well. So anyway easy does it right? & one day at a time. By the way he is 24 years older than I am & I am finally after 18 years showing n much more love for him. He has been sober over 11 years sober. He is a success story I think. Anyway I am still grateful

(((Kathleen))) - my AH is also older than I. There are times when I fear him passing first and then other times when I accept it. I do know that I am far more accepting of all when I am rested and focused on recovery. Life has thrown me some curve balls in the last week+ and my mind really wants to wonder and project and I do all that I can to come right back to the here/now. It's been a constant mental tug-of-war. What I really love about recovery is we have so many tools to assist us in so many ways that by trial and error, I can usually get to a present spot, and then let go and let God.

(((Hugs))) girl - I'm sorry your down - I do hear you and understand...sorry for the late post!


Practice the PAUSE...Pause before judging.  Pause before assuming.  Pause before accusing.  Pause whenever you are about to react harshly and you will avoid doing and saying things you will later regret.  ~~~~  Lori Deschene
