Having Bipolar Disorder, Alcoholism, and Emotional Trauma have taught me that life without recovery is a miserable existence.

I experienced that for my the first 43 years of my life. At 51, I have learned the hard way that if I don’t put my recovery first, relapse, depression, anxiety, mania, distorted thinking, severe shame, obsessive thinking, compulsions, and a host of other afflictions are ready to pounce on me and put me back on a course of self-destruction.

Like a diabetic taking their insulin each day to stay well, I must put my recovery first.
