A couple of weeks back a woman in an Al Anon meeting mentioned that she had suffered from uncontrollable nervous ticks all her life -- 50 years -- until she came into the program, but that she had calmed down over 18 months in and now could sit still.  Today in a meeting there was a woman across from me whose leg -- one leg propped over the other knee -- was working uncontrollably for much of the meeting.

I realized two things

  1. Time was, that might have bothered the hell out of me, I might have focused on it and been distracted by it
  2. I might have had a pretty active leg myself at times.  In fact, I still might. But not so bad any more, I don't think.
