HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH

Details

This week's "Here's To Your Health" is a continuation of Steve C's story. Steve is a Vietnam Veteran who sobered up in 1990 and this is his message of hope that no matter who you are, or how far down the scale you've gone, you can climb out of all that and create a new kind of life for yourself by working the Twelve Steps and getting the right kind of help. Steve is living proof you don't have to stay there any longer in that living hell of total alcohol and drug induced despair.

This week's guest columnist is Steve C, who is a friend of Alcoholics Anonymous. Steve's story could not be adequately covered in just one issue of The Waynedale News so to be fair, we've condensed it into a series of short articles; here then is the beginning of Steve's story.

My name is Steve and I am a recovering alcoholic. Fifteen years ago when I first darkened the doors of Alcoholics Anonymous, my lips could not utter the words "I am an alcoholic." For reasons I never understood, from my...

Shoulder Pain

 

I was watching the World Series the other day and as I watched the pitchers pitch the ball I couldn't help to think about how much stress they put on their shoulder muscles with every throw.

There are several types of shoulder injuries such as a traumatic AC joint separation, bursitis or...

This week's "Here's To Your Health" is from a recovering alcoholic named Fiona D. who lives in Ireland, in County Mayo, in a pleasant little house in a town immediately on the seacoast. She frequently walks down to the beach for relaxation, where she can look out on one of the most scenic views in all of Ireland, with seals and dolphins playing in the waves near water's edge. Fiona is a friend of Alcoholics Anonymous and so we asked her to be this week's guest columnist.
