I am tired now but quite normal. I ate a whole pizza and a peach and now I am sleepy. Now and then I jag a balance of these chronic illness conditions and life is sweet as. I AM getting the knack of staying in the day and trusting . It has taken 2 1/2 years to get to that point.

The Eden people have had fun and I am glad.

Roger said to me in early days of recovery – LOWER YOUR STANDARDS. I seem to have finally managed to do that and peace is the outcome.
