Where is my Attorney?

I have a court appointed attorney. I've not been able to speak to her. She won't return my phone calls, nor does she contact me. I wish I had some idea of what is going to happen to me for my DUI, my third one in three years.

If I was in another state I might be able to get alternate sentencing such as a treatment program. I might get a legislatively mandated six month in jail. I might be able to get my charges reduced and get three months in jail. In any event, I won't be driving anytime soon.

I just can't go to jail. I'd rather die.

Hello, I'm Nancy. I'm an alchoholic

Welcome to my blog. I'm Nancy, and I'm an alchoholic. While I do go to AA, I'm probably either in an inpatient treatment program for my additiction, or in jail for my DUI. I've not been to sentencing in court, but since this is my third DUI, it does not bode well for me.

People ask me why I drink. I drink because I am an alchoholic. I drink because my body craves alchohol on a cellular level. I get drunk because I pick up a beer. To not get drunk, all I have to do is not pick up a beer. I don't drink because of you. It's not your fault.

I have a disease; like as if I had measles. People with measles get red bumps. Parents, friends, and associates don't cause the red bumps. Measles causes the red bumps. Alchoholics drink because alchoholism causes them to drink.

First Post

I've just created this web page blog site. I'll have to start adding content to it soon.

I've never created a web site before, and I've never blogged before. This is all new to me. I'm not sure what I want out of this. Maybe it is therapy, like a diary. Maybe my story will help someone else. Maybe it is by talking about my problems that I find relief from the demons that hound me.

Nancy Over The Rainbow is about how my life is, as M. Scott Peck would say, hard. Life is hard. Hopefully by accepting this basic truth I can learn to be sober. My hope... my dream... my belief is that somewhere over the rainbow skies will be blue. Life can not always be this miserable. Let me find that magic land that exists, over the rainbow.

Link Love to Some Friends

This is some quick and dirty link love to several of my friends just so they can get a little higher Technorati Authority ranking.
