    My name is Angela and I am an Addict. As of today I have been sober for 2 years from Prescription Opiates. 2 years later and I’m dancing on my own 2 years ago on this penultimate day I had options: Jail, Institution or Death. For a year leading up to June 24/2018, I was… Read more

  • Alpha Female

    June 16, 2020 by

    I must admit: on a social level, this life of mine can be isolating sometimes – with or without Quarantine. My transformation from a prescription drug addicted Mother has exceeded my expectations. I attribute my almost 60 lb weight loss to Keto, Cannabis, my kids and overall RECOVERY. The pictures on the left were taken… Read more

  • Changing.

    May 25, 2020 by

    This time in our lives has been a challenge on so many levels. Our new reality has already been in effect for almost 14 weeks now; already a first trimester in a pregnancy in comparison. Keeping such a secret could be easier for some but I imagine scary for a first timer as well due… Read more

  • Quarantined

    April 14, 2020 by

    Wow I cannot believe it’s been 3 months since I wrote on my blog. Actually it’s been longer since I haven’t provided a decent update since December when I settled my Divorce. It’s already April 2020 and the world has obviously changed a lot too. I’ve spent the last month in “quarantine” while taking care… Read more

  • In the End

    December 11, 2019 by

    Happy, relieved and grateful as I write this post; 534 days sober from the Opiate Addiction that almost killed me. As I’ve mentioned before, my inability to stop abusing those pills had already killed so much of me emotionally, psychologically, financially and even physically. At the time, I don’t think anyone predicted such a fast… Read more

    Two days ago, it was our youngest daughters 1st birthday. She is a blessing in so many ways and everyone loves her so much especially her sisters. This Baby has been the easiest by far, as a great sleeper with a calm disposition and easy-going nature. I am blessed, grateful and thankful for all of… Read more

  • Love Can Be Cruel

    July 22, 2019 by

    Sometimes it can take awhile before we realize how much of ourselves we have given to our partners. If we factor in how involved they are with their Family Hive; it can become overwhelming. It seems over time, we fall into these traps or hives; where we lose our identities as we immerse ourselves into… Read more

  • Shamanic Healing

    July 3, 2019 by

    Shamanic Healing has played an important role in my Recovery since November 2017. The brew is an ancient, indigenous medicine made from a vine and a plant to create DMT. The medicine itself alters your state of consciousness however this is done in a controlled setting. Two Shamans guide the Ceremony night. Like any medicine;… Read more
