The End of My Marriage

I enter 2022 broken…..again….. This time it’s ALL gone. My marriage ended in the fall. I moved out of our ‘home’ in November. Got an apartment in the ‘city’. Made more money than I ever had and am totally broke. Gained more weight. Started drinking again, trying to convince everyone that I’m okay. Felt uncontrollable... Continue Reading →

Covid vs Sobriety

There is an irony that is not ‘wasted’ on me (no pun intended) that this is my millionth go around with trying not to drink.  I know I sound like a broken record.  Especially, as I try and navigate another ‘new’ beginning.

From ME to WE

It has been months now since I have written a new blog post. I have no excuses. Have I been drinking? Sometimes… Have I had an occasional slip up? Yes. Do I feel ok? For the most part yes… and for the most part no. More than likely I haven’t written because I feel guilt.... Continue Reading →
