Good Morning!

My glucose came in at 181 this morning...I'm guessing a little high since I ate some brown rice with ground turkey for dinner last night. Not panicking....just being very mindful.

Yesterday shook out ok...I had several visitors late morning....a friend from AA, my Dad and then my sister came over to help me cook up some chicken to have for the week. She also brought me a jug of this flavorless collagen powder that is packed with protein and is good for joints. It disolves in liquid, so I did it this morning for the first time in my coffee...I could not taste it at all...so that's cool and hopefully it will be an additional 'superfood' option for me to get in my protein and help my knees'.

I had to be firm once again on the phone mid-day when she called from the psych ward, and it knocks me sideways for a bit...but each time I can hear myself being stronger and getting clarity inside on what I really want.

Last evening about 6:30pm there was a knock at the door and it was one of the police officers that had came here last week. A really nice guy, my age from NYC...he just wanted to check on me and see how I was holding up and we talked for about a half hour and he asked if I'd be interested in hanging out outside police business, as friends...and so he gave me his cell number and overall that was just a real nice gesture and it felt good.

I'm listening to an udiobook 'the four agreements' now at my desk while I'm working and I aloready folded my laundry from yesterday. Just going to my daily work routine here at my desk and make sure I'm prepped for the week and then I'm probably just going to try and relax...as best I can.

    I'm really glad to hear that your resolve is strengthening. In the long run this is probably the best path for both of you. In the short run it will be one of the hardest things you have ever done. Kudos for doing it.

    It will be great for you to have someone outside your immediate circle to visit and hang out with.

    Have a good day.
