|This is what I wore.|
CNN came to my house. Yes, CN-mother fucking N! What? The only time I thought something like that would ever happen to me is if I killed a bunch of people, or stoled a bunch of stuff. Thank goodness it wasn't for anything like that. It was so exciting. Wow!!
I was contacted through Twitter by this nice man, (I won't mention his name unless he says it is okay) because he had run across my blog, and wanted to talk to me about doing a story about how recovery is possible. Also, how my blog has been helpful to me, and where I am at now. Can I say no to something like that? No.
In August, I'll be sober three years. I'm a baby in this process. But my life has dramatically gotten better in these past few years, than ever before. I have purpose, direction, and LIFE that I never dreamed of really. That is what he wanted to share, and exactly what I wanted to share. Recovery is possible, it takes what it takes, and we shouldn't judge people by their struggle

Just so you know, I am writing this right now with a camera on me and two CNN folks standing behind me, filming this as I type....cool and very awkward! But hey, I'm getting something written!
I can only speak for myself. I don't represent the way to recover, 12-steps, counselors-in-training or any of it. I am just telling my story, of my life, and how it has has gotten better.

My daughter did a great job as well and is happy to help me tell our story of recovery as a family. I am so proud of her.
I have more to say about this idea of sharing stories. I will talk more about that later. Also, I don't know where or when it will air. There are some VERY exciting recovery type stuff coming up in the near future, and I plan on telling you all about it.
I took my last final last night, so I am BACK. I'll see you Friday.
