I've been thinking of two different , I guess you would called them metaphors for my recovery program. When people have heart surgery they put them on a heart and lung bypass machine that actually does the "living" for you while the repairs are being made.
The second one is in certain businesses they have manual over-ride on certain machines in case they fail to function properly. My life failed to function and I practice a recovery program as my own version of manual over ride.
Don't really no why these to ideas have been rolling around in my head for a couple of days but they have. Between the life support the recovery program provides me while I do the work of , well, stepwork and I have a way to over ride the disease mode I seem to want to live in.
Both metaphors are hopeful as is my life today.
