Received help. Trying to help out now

I was homeless in 2008, then I received help from my current psychiatric care provider, a charitable not-for-profit organization that treats people with severe and persistent mental illness. They put me up in transitional housing after I got out of the psychiatric hospital.

I also developed a problem with drinking and received help from AA.

I try now to give back, though now all I can do is donate money. Before covid-19 I did volunteer work for AA, maybe 4 to 16 hours a week. I just wish I could do more.

My sister and brother-in-law get on to me about giving money away, but I feel like it’s something I should do.


I volunteered in a hospital, I didn’t last long, too much stress for me. I can’t work either.

All the stress that I can handle is staying in bed.

There is an AA website with a forum, but i never looked into it.

Just donated $10.00 to the homeless shelter. Last night, I gave $10.00 to AA. Right now the preacher is on TV talking about Christian generosity. I’m trying to donate to those who help people.

Unlike the preacher, AA and the homeless shelter weren’t pestering me for money.


Haha. I cant say what I would like to about “the holy” but believe me it isn’t positive.
