    Mr A never properly understood the diagnosis as it is a brain tumour he is vey confused and being such an optimist thought he could have treatment. The full impact of the diagnosis and prognosis has now hit him

    Re: International Army October 2020

    Morning,
    Really should set my alarm as by the time I've found my ear-trumpets, taken painkillers for my bad back and put my teeth in its nearly bedtime again.

    @satz123...............it was good advice.

    Many thousands of our prescious little people have arrived at Uni and gone straight into isolation. Makes me wonder if rather than a bunch of 'educated' politicians would it be better replaced by a bunch of people of the street who actaully have this thing called common sense.
    Boris couldn't fathom out there was a place called the North................yes there's millions of us live up North while babbling on about the rule of 6............its 2 in this mysterious land callled the North..................its the bit between the South and Scotland.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    'Fraid that didn't happen here. Now with unis open & literally thousands congregating in major cities drinking who will save us They just haven't got the message here.
    Does not surprise me. From the outset I said the message to the young folk was wrong. We told them they wouldn't get COVID-19 & if they did it was going to be mild.
    Telling them all they had to worry about was infecting older people - didn't work. Our government couldn't fathom that At age 17 they just want to meet other 17 year olds.
    They will take the chance that they may not see granny for a few months.
    Selfish little buggers - need to be given the big picture.

    Re: International Army October 2020

    I am self-isolating - I think it's saturday - I'm bored.
    WTF is everyone?

    Time to re-invent ourselves I think.
    We need to talk more about alcohol & how the lack of it has affected us. There is no value in me here talking to myself. People read but don't comment. Why ?
    Perhaps if you have a hangover from hell & the only thing that will cure it is another drink - do I want to listen to me talk about fecking eejits in Dublin drinking ? NO.
    I know I'm not the only one who talks to themselves on here each day but really what is the point in me waffling on about stuff that is of no interest to anyone who doesn't know me and is battling to get & stay sober.

    Hey Army!!

    @brit - thinking of you and Mr. A. So very difficult for both of you. I don't know what to say. Wishing you luck with your virtual marathon although I'm not sure exactly what that is. I heard that the Athens Marathon is cancelled this year and I thought of you. How nice if you could come and visit me one year at the time of the Marathon. The runners go by on the route not 50 metres from my place. Again, sending you

    I agree 100% Satz and that's one of the reasons that I don't post every day. Just don't always have something to say that I think might be of interest and/or help to someone. Not that I don't like to read about everyone's daily issues, I just don't think I have a lot to offer some days.

    I think one of the reasons there is a lack of discussion about AL is because there are so few Newbies (from what I've seen, anyway) and most of them end up, naturally, in the Newbies Nest. Of course, loads of support and excellent advice there but it would be nice if some or even one of them dropped by here once in a while. After all, we've all talked the talk and walked the walk. Lord knows we have lots of advice and support to offer as well. I do wonder tho' if the fact that most of the Army is AF and has been for a good long while is something that puts people off. Maybe they are timid about dropping in to a bunch of old-bies. So I just want to say this....

    We in the Army don't care if you are one day sober or 10000 or if you are drinking and want to stop or if you are sober but struggling. We are all in this together. We've been where you are. So many day one's, so many relapses, so many stops and starts. But at some moment, the penny dropped and we chose to live a sober life. If that's what you want, then pull up a chair and join us. Ask us anything, tell us if you're struggling, maybe just one little crumb of advice from one of us will be what it takes. We don't as a whole support any one way of getting sober. We all got sober in different ways, literally. Some went to detox, some went to AA besides MWO, some had home detox, some just managed it on their own. Others had support from family members, others not. Others had counselors and/or medical support, others not. The thing we all have in common is that we had a problem with alcohol and we ended up at MWO to try and find our way out of the black hole that is alcohol addiction or abuse. We wanted to be free from that, we wanted to find ourselves again and live the life we are supposed to live, not chained to a bottle. So to anyone lurking who wants support and advice, come and join us. We talk about our everyday lives, problems, issues, happy moments and sad. But we also know a lot about AL and would be more than happy to talk about that.

    Satzy - if the advice given to teens in Ireland was that they could breeze right through this whole Covid thing, then it was defo wrong. And I don't know many teens who, when invited to a party, or a get together or whatever with the chance to party it up, hit on some cute girl/guy and let loose, are gonna think maybe they shouldn't because they might carry germs home to dear old Granny. Nope, never ever.

    Weather gorgeous - having a summer-like weekend. 10 pm and 23C. Maybe hit the beach tomorrow. Spent time inside today cleaning and then got another painting finished. "Cat and Cardinal" It's for my sister. They have a grey tabby cat with a white tip on her tail and there's this bright red cardinal that winters in one of their trees.

    Am off for a wee walk and then to bed.

    Hopefully catch up with youz tomorrowz...
