    Edith here, thank you for your kind words community. I celebrated seven years in recovery on July 5th. I love that we can see the similarities in each others stories. Others have inspired me and let me know that recovery is possible. I feel so privileged to be able to do the same for some people. Together, we do recover. 💖

    Oh I love this. I love the bit about we can be mad at our parents and that can be juxtaposed with understanding them as well. I also love that your young daughter feels good about herself. That is huge!
