About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

Follow Your Heart by Susanna Tamaro
GREAT because she paints a picture of healthy motherly love.
Rispondimi. by Susanna Tamaro.
GREAT because she paints a picture of terrible loss, and neglect in a very beautiful innocent way. Very moving. Will make you weep!
Anything by Susanna Tamaro really..

Motherless Daughters: The Legacy of Loss by Hope Edelman
For women with absent mothers. This gives you a rough idea of how absent mothers affects girls development. A useful roadmap, but that's all. The aa programme is STILL the solution, but this helps you see where you got sidetracked

Type in Motherless and see what comes up in amazon and google
