    My life is no longer a hurricane. The oceans are calming, And the skies are clearing.
    Believe you me; there are still scattered down-pours.
    But the fight is less tiresome now, less consistent.

    So this is what my son recently posted on FB!! It made me very happy to see this. He is doing ok. He has gotten a second job working with a guy he works with on the side. Its physical labor and I think working so hard is really good for him in many ways. It keeps him busy, its physical. So it is all hopeful.

    I like his post because it seems optimistic but in a realistic way, know what I mean? I'm relieved and happy for him!

    Physical labor or heavy exercise is so good for one's mood.

    I am enjoying it.... and our relationship is slowly improving which I am glad about! and Jane yes I agree he sounds optimistic but realistic...and I think he is starting to really think about his future which is all good. I would feel even better if I felt like he had really embraces sobriety.... but at least for now he is doing better.

    I get it TL. My daughter has not accepted sobriety either but she is working and paying her bills as far as I know and not causing us problems. It's the best I can hope for right now.
