Relapse in recovery

photo-1I attended the Georgia Artists with Disabilities Exhibition today in which I had three drawings on display. I enjoyed myself and was able to engage in the event. I am also thankful that I woke up this morning awake and alive unlike what I went through yesterday. Yesterday when I awoke, my head was telling me life was not worth living. I was hindered with the notion of just laying down and staring at the wall. However, I persevered and accomplished what I intended to do for the day although with much difficulty. I do not understand what happened yesterday but can only be thankful that it did not occur today. So much progress has happened for me but as it has been explained to me, as in any recovering program, there will be relapses. I was proud of myself however, as difficult as it was, not to bury my head in the sand and remain stuck.

  1. I’m sad to hear that you struggled yesterday. I’m thrilled to hear that you overcame and was able to persevere. Know that you are loved and your presence here makes a difference in my life and in the lives of others. I, for one, am grateful you are brave enough to share your journey.
