      Hey Nora . . . that is a lot to deal with. Wow. Great job on not letting that negative energy suck you down, or your son and DIL. They were obviously taking their cues from you.

      Among so many other emotions, it must be painful to see your sibling in such rough shape. So sad.

      Hang in there, you got this!

      Take care of yourself, that's always the most important thing.
      Sunbeam - thank you. I have been worried that I was going to find my brother dead. I contacted one of his kids and explained. She called her brother and told him that until he called his Dad and went there to pack him up that nothing was going to happen. He called his Dad last night and my nephew & wife are flying out to Oregon in June. They will get a pod and get all of that loaded. Then they will drive back home to Louisiana with my brother. It is such a load off my mind. After he has moved, I will go back up and finish.
      Thanks again. xx

      Re: Nora's journey

      Thanks everyone. Feeling unsettled at the moment but it will pass. Lots of things going on and the responsibilities are growing heavy. But, nothing that won't work itself out in the end. I just need to remember to take care of me when I'm feeling like this. It's not that I'm really worrying about things but there are so many 'what ifs' right now that it can be overwhelming at times.

      Pav - Thanks for your comment about the positives. I have really been working on positivism and gratitude. My screensaver at work flashes different motivational quotes that I saved and one of them is about training yourself to be grateful. I saw saw it on my screen this week when I walked up to my desk and it reminded me. We have a dry erase board on our fridge titled Love Notes and underneath it are positive words/sentences like Be Happy, Be Grateful, Look for the positive, don't overthink, etc. I am trying to live my life that way. Some days I am more successful than others.

      Thanks for all the support. I begin to get a little concerned about myself when I withdraw too much. Decided it was better to let it out over here. I spent a little too much time looking at the pictures of mimosas the other day. Luckily I had stored away in my brain a little film strip of my last drinking night - played that one and a few others for good measure. Mimosas didn't look that good anymore.

      I wish I could put into words how much you all mean to me.

      Nora, you give here more than you receive, don't lose that perspective. You are dealing with so much and doing it so well. Your story is a testimony to the fact that drinking does not help coping.
      My life is better without alcohol, since 9/1/12. My sobriety tool is the list at permalink 236 on the toolbox thread under monthly abstinance.
