32. Thanks for the support!
You are right - I will go no matter how I am feeling. I picked up at around 5 years the 1st time because I hadn't been to meetings in a few years, so I know what can happen. Took me 5 years to get back!

Luckily, I can mix it up a bit. You are so right about "cunning, baffling, powerful & patient!" I see what's happening and luckily I do not have to let it overtake me.

Thanks again and Congratulations! :Hi:
