and I am the mother of an addict. I tell you this so you know I understand. I have been there. I am still here! I know your pain, your constant fear, your struggle to get out of bed some days. With this blog, I am going to share some very raw and personal stories of my own 7-year journey with my daughter. I will also touch on many topics, from enabling, to codependency, detachment, clinical studies, recovery stories and more.
I invite you to follow me on this journey.
See where Katie and Brittany have been featured on.
