2 Years

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 … Continue reading 2 Years

Alpha Female

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 … Continue reading Alpha Female

500 Days

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 … Continue reading 500 Days

Settle Down

I must say Divorce; especially a drawn-out, Acrimonious one - sucks. I had to take a break from Blogging for a few weeks. I had a lot of real life stuff to deal with this month but, I've never been so focused, so energized as I have these last few weeks. This phase of Separation … Continue reading Settle Down

2 Days Notice

15 days ago, I realized if I didn't change my situation drastically and leave the Matrimonial Home - I'd probably end up losing it all. The amount of Stress from the situation I'm in wasn't going to get better. I didn't Relapse, I didn't do anything atypical of a stereotypical "Recovering Addict" - I didn't … Continue reading 2 Days Notice

Rinse, Wash, Repeat.

It was a year ago - September 14th, 2018, that I came home to rejoin my Family after spending 11 Weeks away at In-Patient Treatment for an Addiction to Prescription Opiates. I could have lost everything; my life, my children and my freedom. I was running at such a dangerous pace as a User in … Continue reading Rinse, Wash, Repeat.

Let Her Go

If someone or something had told me 442 days ago I'd be in this place versus the Hell I was living through - I would have probably just taken another Pill. I would not have believed it and would have instead tried to convince you that these Pills helped me. That they made me "Better" … Continue reading Let Her Go

Divide and Conquer

Thank you to everyone for the encouraging feedback and support. I truly am writing about my experiences and sharing my knowledge for everyone's benefit. It's been 3 months since I began Blogging again and I love it. I've already had a couple Women (and a few Men!) reach out to me about their own stories … Continue reading Divide and Conquer

29 Years

Today I am releasing 29 years of pain. For the first time in 29 years, I didn't weep at his grave like a baby or fall to my knees in despair. When I was a child, my mother would constantly tell us that she didn't believe my Dad was there so she didn't like going … Continue reading 29 Years
