Today I celebrate 26 years of recovery from alcohol and drug addiction but the day count is what really gets me – 9,498 days! The last 365 of them have been incredible with the realization of VRYeveryday and telling my story way out loud so that I might help others and bring awareness to a holistic way of thinking about mental health and recovery. Being vulnerable in a very public way has been the biggest challenge but I’m grateful when someone reaches out to say it made a difference.
If you are struggling with addiction or mental health issues or just plain life fatigue, I’m here to tell you there is hope and relief- I promise, it’s possible. If you are reading this you have contributed to this wonderful life of mine in some big or small way and I thank you sincerely. xo
