. I’ve been trying to figure out how to put the pieces back together that you stole from me. Trying to sleep, eat, or even breathe has been a challenge this past week. Trying to stop wondering how someone I trusted, that I thought cared about me, could do something so vile. I refuse to let you take any more from me or to hurt anyone else the way you’ve stripped me of any courage I had. I hope no woman ever has to check her lock multiple times before bed, or not be able to close her eyes when she washes her face, or need someone with her 24/7, or be afraid to take her dog outside alone. I hope no one ever has to feel the fear that you’ve placed in me. These are the reasons why no matter how scared I am, I won’t let what you did to me go unheard. #MeToo

At three months sober I look back on my life and how many times I said I was done and found myself doing the exact same things the very next day. I couldn’t stop, I reasoned with myself and told myself that I’d manage and it was for a reason and life’s short, let’s have fun. It was ruining my life. I can’t thank the support system I have now for helping me get to three months sober so I can see what a beautiful life I have and just how lucky I am to be able to help the next.
