What started as innocent/not so innocent drinking led down a brutal path of pain, suffering, and destruction.
I’ve been raped more times than I can count. I dated two of my rapists. I was arrested three times, attempted suicide on several occasions, hospitalized a few times (the irony is that it wasn’t from suicide attempt, lost jobs and relationships. All because of drinking.
Having tried AA meetings, outpatient rehab, and therapy in the past, I gave up because I couldn’t find a modality that suited me and the lifestyle I wanted to live. so when I sobered up almost five years ago without any emotional support, I also gave up on the notion of seeking professional treatment. i relied solely on Divine faith to help me find my way back to myself.
I had absolutely no idea how I was going to survive myself. Not the slightest inclination how I was going to love myself. Completely oblivious how to process emotions as a sober person.
Oh-and the man who I thought was the love of my life has just shattered my heart in a thousand pieces.
In other words, I was a hot mess and beyond ignorant how to navigate sobriety or life for that matter.
But I was determined to get my act together. So I sobered up and came out of the woo woo closet. That was when I started to discover parts of myself that I had never dared to explore.
And now here I am…to help you rock your recovery and become the love of your life.
