What’s Been Happening – and I Met an Old Friend….

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I haven’t posted any new blogs lately – yes, I know. I’ve turned my attention onto a couple of projects that I’ve been working on and just haven’t had a chance but I will be back on track posting blogs twice a week. In the meantime, I like to […]

Losing EVERYTHING.

Losing EVERYTHING.

Have you lost your job, your husband, your best friend, and your house? Been kicked out of your home? Yeah, most of us have experienced one of those in a day – maybe two. It’s a bad day! One that you think will probably define you for a while but how quickly life returns to […]

METH AND WEIGHT. WHAT NOT TO SAY – EVER.

When I was introduced to meth with Mark, I was 27 years old and weighed about 140lbs on my 5’5” frame. I wasn’t happy with my weight but at least I had been losing weight after getting up to 180lbs when I used the birth control shot the previous years. I’ve been vegetarian my whole […]

My Last December with Mark – PART 2 – My first week clean.

I slept the whole way to my dad’s house which took about three times longer because of the snowy conditions – but it didn’t matter to me. I was gone. The heater in the van finally had me warm from head to toe. I remember feeling the hard bumps in the driveways and I knew […]

My last December with Mark… the first quit.

My last December with Mark… the first quit.

My last December with Mark is foggy in my head. We were fighting so much it was starting to get really crazy; in fact, it was easier to count the days out of the week that we didn’t fight. We fought about everything; the power getting turned off, bills not being paid but we still […]
