recovery is not an option


Recovery is not an option. For me it is necessary. I have been experiencing a lot of issues out of my control. I feel that I would rather call things I go through issues rather than problems. Sometimes I guess these are relevant & really not interchangeable. I am so glad that I might be lessening the load by seeing things differently. I guess it can also be a technicality. So, now I will elaborate on what is going on w/me. I am just starting to go through a big challenge in my life. My AH is going through cancer treatment. He has a cancerous spot on his left kidney. He is going to have his kidney removed soon. Here goes one of my issues. I have never really experienced something like this before. My AH is doing well considering & both of us are staying positive. I don't want to project about the possibility that he might not make it. I also don't want to live like gloom & doom is all I can see. I am somewhat of a realist I guess. I hope I am saying this OK. I guess I am hoping that this is coming from my heart & not just from my head. I have to practice gratitude as I can't see it any other way.

Thanks for all the love & support you have shown me in the last 10+ years I have been posting on here.

I love you all!

Kathleen AKA Hoot

{{Kathleen}} I am so sorry to hear that your AH is experiencing such a trying time!!

I think that you are doing great and have the right frame of mind concerning how

you are dealing with seen and unforeseen issues. Just keep leaning on your HP

and please let us know how you are both doing.

{{{Kathleen}}}. It sounds like you have your program well in force to help with all of life's ups and downs. And some of them are really life-threatening, and somehow, alanon actually helps us get through these very rough times. I'm wishing you the best outcome with your current situation. Someone on MIP once said, when you are going through hell, keep going. Peace, prayers, light, and love.

((Kathleen))) Prayers for you and your husband for the best of outcomes at this difficult time. First Things First and One Day at a Time have been helpful slogans for me at times when I feel especially powerless as well as leaning on my hp. Glad you keep coming back and shared with us. TT
