Alcoholism, depression, and disordered eating have kept me in a mental, emotional, spiritual, and sometimes even physical prison for the last twenty years. This blog is mostly about me trying to break free of these diseases (because that’s what all three of these things are) by talking about what I am going through, what my life is like, and what I want my life to be.
Instead of keeping my struggles secret, I’m going to share them. I’m also going to share a lot of what I learn about these diseases as I go through rehab and the programs of AA so that others who struggle with these same things (alcoholism, addiction, anorexia, bulimia, depression, anxiety, and so on) will be able to gain insight into their own situations.
I will admit, up front, these are not easy things to talk about. It has taken me a long time to gather the courage to start this blog. I hope I am able to remain courageous enough to be open and honest, even if anonymous.
