I’ve been in a battle with myself and my addictions for as long as I can remember. I certainly did not dream of being a drunk or drug addict when I was a little girl. I never wanted to lay down the disappointments I did to my parents. But I knew at a very young age that my thinking was not like those around me. Depression, anxiety, addiction, eating disorder and suicidal thoughts were the building blocks of what I was made of. I spent most of my life trying to claw my way out of a tin can. If my story can open the door for anyone else to start their “Recovery Now” then I am doing what will keep me in my recovery. Selfish? Maybe, but that is the great paradox of helping others.

“Recovery is not where we arrive, but rather a state of being”…….JeanIrvin
