The MIP Alanon Group...
Permalink  
 


 

aww The local Alanon group here, on Miracle in Progress got overloaded [with people] and unwieldy...

...it caters for a demography here, and does that superbly.

Members were reluctant to use the group Business Board- which was designed to deal with conscience issues.

Betty K, told me that Americans do Tradition One and jump to Trad 7. Mostly.

Knowledge of the third legacy- The Concepts, is fairly rare. hmm ...

An American tradition One works well in the USA, mostly.

because people can just go to another meeting around the corner.

But in small rural jurisdictions- there are not options

 aww Our nearest town was a sleepy sheep town, really. It had one been a bustling gold mining town.

Wealthy farmer lived round the hills- but does buy the river were "the grey houses". Homes that were actually unpainted shacks.

We had some land- up on a terrace. We were what I call Kaki Whero. Poor whites, with maybe a dab of the tar brush.

Our home was made up of mining shacks really.

But we lived in a place where everybody knew everybody well. Too well sometimes. biggrin ...

...therefore no secrets.

I never had a desk job. Mostly worked as a field worker. Also worked on a railway gang and shearing gangs.

I used to be suspicious of clinicians and professionals. Dad's stepfather was a talented doctor. But also a binge drinker and a womaniser.

I think I have learned to negotiate about my health with professionals.

I got into deep trouble with the MIP Alanon board because I admitted I was 70 years old and med free.

I do have C-PTSD. But efforts to mitigate this have been successful, if time consuming.

Using the 12 Step tools is helpful, Keeps the pecker up.

And the people we run shoulders with are jewels, really... smile ...
