Hi Carole. I hope that you are feeling better today. You are changing your outlook on everything including your marriage because you are thinking about it and working on making positive changes. Danny isn’t there yet. He is stuck and isn’t willing to make changes. I hope I don’t sound too strong about this. You are my friend and I love you and I am very proud of all that you have accomplished in your life changes. You are going forward and don’t need anyone to pull you backwards. I am in a funk today but I will get out of it. My Sister did get my nephew out of jail and I can’t fault her for that. He went to his arraignment and his accuser (assault) didn’t show. They have scheduled another hearing and if she doesn’t show, all charges will be dropped. They haven’t heard from his parole officer yet as she could still put him back in prison. This is second hand from my Mom as my Sister and I aren’t on talking terms. Anyways it is a mess and there is a lot more to the story. I hope my Sister takes care of herself as I know the toll that it can take on you. I dealt with my Daughter’s addiction problem for years and it is hard. Even though she and I are in a good place now and she as been clean for almost 1 year, she has to go to counseling and group support meetings as she battles her demons. Just like me with the gambling addiction. Life isn’t easy. But we deserve happiness and positive people surrounding us!! Take care of yourself. Get plenty of rest! Happy early New Years!!!
