8. My Life is Buffering
After group, I asked Gerry how he ended up in rehab. He said, “My life was buffering. The page I was on looked OK, but the wheel icon up in the corner was spinning. I worked, lived at home, smoked and drank my paycheck. My sister kept pointing out how my life was going nowhere. So, I started taking my buddy’s Adderall. Not much, just enough to get me moving, maybe jolt me onto a new page in my life. Before long I was addicted.”
“There’s better ways to deal with that buffering feeling,” I said.
He laughed. “Do they pay you to state the obvious?”
“Actually, sometimes they do,” I said.
If today I feel like my life is buffering, I will find a good way change it.
