This is my place of refuge. This is where I can open up about the deepest, darkest, “aha” moments as I slowly am recovering from addiction, abuse, and divorce. I am a single mother of two beautiful children. I was married for 12 years while maintaining an addiction and being a victim of abuse. The hardest thing I did was finally walk away from everything I knew even though unhealthy. I didn’t know how to end that part of my life and I dove deep into my addiction. Deeper than I thought was possible. After a good 2 years of major addiction and becoming very sick, I chose sobriety and finding a better way. Life doesn’t come easy, but my hardest day is 10 times better than my best day as an addict. Every day I am choosing to face my reality and that means coming to terms with my past, which is everything I was trying to run from. I was in hell for years. I am now coming out from the dark and this is my experience and reality.landscape-1431445281-mom-and-two-daughters

  5. Hi, sorry for taking so long. You visited my blog about a month ago and as I promised I’ve visited yours . You have some interesting and strong posts. I’ve only read a little but I’ll certainly like to read more.
    You’ve been through so much and it’s great you’ve come through it all and not stayed in that dark place, inspirational :).


    1. Aww thank you! I seriously felt the same way reading yours. It’s incredible when you start reading someone’s innermost feelings and you feel like it came straight from your mouth or mind. I’d love to be able to talk to you or email. I think we both could be a huge support to one another. xoxo


      1. I’ll save your number too:) I’ll message you so you have mine. xoxo (hopefully I wrote the right person on facebook.. that would be hilarious if it was the wrong person. oops)
