Despite a caring family, I grew up not being equipped with tools on how to honor my mental health, ADHD & Epilepsy. After losing my father tragically to addiction at age 12, I dove into using substances & various behaviors to cope. I would stop for periods of time due to health concerns, yet I would always return to them because I felt they helped. It wasn't until health and well being reached a tipping point was I truly ready to change. It took awhile to get into recovery & find a mix that worked for me, once I did, life started getting manageable.
LGBTQIA+ friendly and non binary human here. After coming back from a series of relapses I discovered a greater appreciation for recovery, my life & those in it. Although I still am living with chronic illnesses, I now have the tools to manage them with care & a solid support team whom I trust. My mind/body are in a healthy state, I get to love & accept myself for who I am in this moment & the ability to extend the same courtesy to others. I wouldn’t change the past for it’s taught me so much and brought me to where I am today. Grateful to be on this adventure & would love for you to join me!
