Jolene asked in a very kind and loving manner if people would be willing to do that. She did it on my behalf and in retrospect - it should have come from me. I, like Jolene, was worried about offending people.
We are ALL sensitive. Alcoholism and loving alcoholics/addicts does that to us. The pain we feel is the same - the heartache and misery - also the same. I have been on both sides of that alcoholic fence, so I speak from personal experience.
The way things were going was not - IN MY OPINION ONLY - not healthy for ANY of us. It would be like having an Al-Anon and AA meeting in the same room!!!!! When the finger pointing would be over who would be left standing?
Please do not blame Jolene for doing a volunteer job of service and commitment to all of us - if you truly read all that she has posted, do you really see anything other than a sincere and caring interest in ALL of us?
