Just a quickie – in the GA/Gamanon group I was involved with, on the evening when we joined forces there was only sharing. Feedback only occurred when the groups were separate. I think the privacy of being with those who understood you led to the more honest, blunt approach. For instance CGs can be judgemental with each other but don’t need non-CGs chipping in and vice versa.
Sorry Baby Bear is having a tough time with teething – it must be rotten when those sharp bits force their way through your gums and then be told that visits to the dentist are important to keep them.
Hopefully ‘ see’ you soon and you can vent away
