Hey there! Thanks for stopping by.....and I'm sorry you're here.
"Huh?? **record scratch** - "What is this lady on about with the I'm sorry?"
Well, I'm sorry - because if you're choosing to stop by here and stick around past the title then something brought you here and (from experience) that something probably is...not awesome.
So I am truly sorry.
But I will say that you're not alone in this. I'm over here trying to figure out the two things that no one EVER talks about - grief and sobriety (sounds like a real fuckin' party doesn't it?)
Now, whilst I cannot and will not promise a "party" (first of all we're still in a pandemic y'all) - what I will promise is some frank (maybe triggering so I'll try to warn you), honest, no BS, no platitudes ("everything happens for a reason" generally makes me want to burn things down).....and maybe even sometimes funny ....conversations about what its' been like for me to lose several people in my life this past year - while also making the decision to try sobriety.
I don't have all the answers. Hell most days I don't have any answers. But, I went through/continue to go through some big shit and it hasn't crushed me yet. So maybe sharing it will help someone. At the very least - putting pen to paper - helps me.
So let’s get after it. Get your tissues ready (crying or laughing - you’ll need em)
Time For Tea,
