7 weeks sober.
Last weekend, I went to an AA meeting with my mother.
She seemed committed to shaking her head in agreement- the way that I do when i’m not quite listening, but want to seem engaged.
At the end of the meeting, she introduced me to everyone and announced that I was looking for a sponsor. I realized that she was using me as a shield to guard her own non-committal attitude about the program and fly under the radar.
