Good Morning and as always thank you for all the love and reading my blog.
Well, if you have been reading and following, you know that I was on the news sharing my son’s story of addiction.http://www.tucsonnewsnow.com/story/36058835/app-extra-tucson-mom-opens-up-about-losing-son-to-opioid-epidemic
I think you should be able to see it from this link or you can go to http://www.tucsonnewsnow.com/search?vendor=ez&qu=andrea+bryant
It was a total trip!!!!!!! So many people reached out to me to say thank you for being so blunt, if it’s one thing I am is direct, usually. The story got my point across. I also got pics from Michael’s HS yearbooks that were on the news and most of all they keep showing the story.
The reason I did this: One life at a time, one family at a time: A young women reached out to me and I know she is a reader and thanked me because her sister listened to her when she told her about Michael’s story and got off the opioids. She is now on her way to wellness.
So, all of that aired on Thursday, Friday my phone was blowing up and Saturday I was a speaker on a radio show. Hmmmmm. Maybe I will take this story to Dr. Phil, I did go on his website and fill out the information.
AND, a really interesting thing happened. I reached out to Michael’s wife, we have not spoken since the day he died and she came over and we had some sort of healing. She is still very sad and angry and can’t move out of all that. But, at least we talked and I feel no more anger in my heart. Thank you God.
Needless to say, I was exhausted yesterday. I took a nice long nap and really just woke up. Good for me.
Today, I am going to spend time with one of my favorite people and I am looking forward to that, Aunt Rae Jacob. http://www.raejacobwrites.com
So, that’s my story of the day. This is a week I am taking care of me: My shoulder isn’t in good shape and I have an appointment with a shoulder doctor, YUCK, so we will see how that goes.
And, I am still looking at the vacuum in my living room and my shoulder is saying NO so I will listen I guess!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today is a short blog but I did want to touch base and tell you all my story.
