(#2139) Karen G (Venice, CA)
5/4-6/2001 in Marietta, GA  EVENT: 11th Marietta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 18 years since 5/30/1982 and sponsored by Clancy I, Karen is a well-known speaker in AA.

She is lively with a very entertaining story.

Karen grew up in a good family in Nebraska but her alcoholism took her to a very dark desperation doing everything a women had to do get by.

She became a nurse who lost her license to her disease but got it back in sobriety.

In anger after a beating from her husband, she put Super Glue on his hand while he was naked, passed out on the couch. Then, as was his habit, he rubbed his privates in his sleep. The description of his subsequent surgery made it into a medical journal. She is not proud of doing that act.

Karen is passionate about AA and carries a strong message of recovery.

AA taught her a level of love she never her thought possible.
