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

Changing.

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.

At the time, I don't think anyone predicted such a fast … Continue reading In the End

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.

The Domino Effect

What if you had been taught your whole life that anyone outside your "Family" can't be trusted? Most likely you would generally end up feeling doubtful of others and stay close to the ones who tell you these things. It would especially become an issue as you age, make friends and/or begin dating someone. The … Continue reading The Domino Effect
