One step at a time

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

I have lived half of my life battling addiction. I have been through hell and back and have put myself in many life-threatening predicaments that I now look back at and feel lucky to be alive. I am still learning who I am but I am starting to like myself, maybe even love myself, so much more than before. I can finally start being the mother both of my daughters need, want and deserve. I am so grateful for that. The most rewarding part is being able to wake up everyday without having to worry about how I am going to get my next fix and I am able to tend to my kiddos' every need.

Do you have a message for the Shatterproof community?

Never give up. If I can do it so can you.
