Pass the life jacket

My entire support team, my fellowship, my sponsor, everyone was back in Niagara. Bridging the Gap was the life jacket I needed.

In early sobriety, when I had about five months, I found myself struggling with an eating disorder. It very quickly took a serious toll on my physical health and I had to leave my sober living group home in Niagara to go to the hospital all the way up in Ottawa.

One of the first things that was on my mind was, How am I going to get to a meeting when I’m confined to this hospital bed? I need AA in my life.
