Caught Between Shame and Pain

Cheryl Gooden
Tell us about your (or your loved one's) recovery journey. What has been the most rewarding part?

My freedom with my children. Allowing my son to make his own mistakes. I was afraid to admit I could not function without my medication. Pills to get up and move. Pills to keep going, then pills to go to sleep. So much pain. Celebrate Recovery helped me to see Christ could empower me to overcome.

Do you have a message for the Shatterproof community?
