On paper, my life was "together" because I was managing to hold down a prestigious job. Behind closed doors, closet drinking was making me anxious, depressed, suicidal, and filled with shame. It all started as social drinking, but then turned into a lifestyle where everything revolved around getting my drink on and numbing out emotional pain.
I have been sober for nearly 6 years. I live in the beautiful mountains of British Columbia with my fiance and two loving pups. I love hiking in the great outdoors and going on day-trip adventures whenever I can.
