I am so excited to start an interactive component to my website because connecting with others in meaningful and healthy ways always saves my ass, over and over!
It saved me when I was killing myself with drugs and alcohol and first walked into a recovery meeting. Okay it wasn't the first time I walked into a recovery meeting, it was probably the thousandth time. But I'm referring to the time when I finally decided I would listen to someone else for a change, because my best ideas led me to hunkering in an attic off and on for days with a bag of cocaine that I was hiding from the cops who were supposedly watching my brother's house, but as long as I snorted a line or drank a beer every 30 minutes or so I was fine, just fine. Yeah, that time.
And so many more times after that, connecting with others saved me.
So, I’m hoping this will be a forum to listen and learn from others on writing, recovery, surviving crazy childhoods or whatever loosely related things are on your mind!
