It's been a tradition for members to post a narrative of their experiences as they progress while fighting this disease- called a Journey. Lots of us have them, and I must admit, like others I've been slack on keeping it updated. How about
we try to get ours updated, and how about
you new folks starting one, sharing as much or as little as you wish of your Journey to recovery. Some have long ones, some short ones, but each Journey is important to share with others who may be trying to find their way and would benefit from reading of others experiences in a narrative form, rather than chopped up posts spread out everywhere.
It may have been our illustrious Bluebird who started the Journey idea, but in any case, lets see if we can get it going again. I'm off to update mine and will post it when done....
New folks, just make a new message, title the subject Journey of (your screen name) and tell us about
your experience, ok? A good idea is to bookmark it so you can easily find it again, and update it as things change with you. http://www.healingwell.com/community/emoticons/turn.gif
