We Never Have It Made
I WENT THROUGH a sobering experience last February--after almost five years of sobriety in AA. I had struggled for some weeks with a persistent flu and was dragged down physically and emotionally. I had a bad case of that "all gone" feeling, plus a flare-up of chronic self-pity. No fever by that time, but still--under the doctor's orders--confined to the house, and fretting about a piled-up desk in the office.
