Oh Allie, your courage is so inspiring!! It sounds like you and your T have some great work ahead of you. I'm so happy for you.
BTW, I have to share a little something with you about this post. I don't know if you knew this or not but I started AA a few months ago. I thought AA was about being sober but I'm discovering it goes far beyond that. It's turning out to be...for me...somewhat of a spiritual journey. The premise being that our "higher power" will do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. And trust me, religion and I haven't gotten along for a very long time so I'm not going down without a fight, lol. Well, I told my sponsor that I can't see where my higher power was showing up in my life. Basically, I told her, "I must not be able to speak God b/c I never understand any answers."
