I am so grateful to be in recovery today! I'm grateful for all of the people who loved me until I could love myself. I hope that someday anyone seeking recovery will have every opportunity to do so.
If I would have made a list of all the things I wanted when I got sober, I would have sold myself short! I am very grateful to be in recovery today! I love my life. I love who I am. I believe EVERYONE should have access to the resources they need, in order to make recovery possible.
