Dear Jessica — On 13 years recovery

Dear 13-year-old Jessica,

I’m sorry your soul hurts so much today. That you’re lying in bed between sleep and nightmares and you’re afraid to get up. 2004 is a hard year, but I’m so proud of you dear one, because today it is 2017, and you are alive.

13 years later, and you are alive.

10 Years

10 Years

Ten years ago I was strong, brave, resilient. But today, largely due to TWLOHA, I am stronger, braver, gentler, more resilient and more compassionate.
