On August 22nd, 2008, I went to my first CoDA meeting. The next morning, I wrote this in my journal:
I didn’t sleep too well last night, but finally fell asleep around 1:00. I woke up at 5:30 with a phrase running through my head. A shrink would probably tell me it's mania because it feels very profound and all-encompassing and it won't leave me alone. I don't know where it came from, but it feels like it was put in my head... here it is:
Give what you can but take what you need.
It's pretty simple but to me it says it all, at the moment. Maybe that's what CoDA is all about?
