Health knowledge made personal
Birthday: March 7
I am a 53 year old alcoholic, , living in Oxford, Mississippi with my husband of 20 years, and my sweet, funny kitty-cat, Boots. At the age of 50, I decided I wanted to do whatever it took to get sober and to truly enter into recovery. In May of 2007, I went into treatment at The Hanley Center in West Palm Beach for the 28 day program, and ended up staying in some form of residential treatment and sober living for 4 1/2 months. I have been sober ever since. Some days -- some WEEKS!! -- are hellish, but the majority are manageable and "normal," many are enjoyable, and some are downright thrilling, exhilirating and joyful. My life now centers around my relationships -- with my Higher Power, my husband, my family, my friends, and myself. For many years, I hated the person I saw in the mirror. At last, now I like the person I am becoming, and I'm growing to love her more fully as I see her more clearly through the Eyes of her Heavenly Father.
