Simply put I fell in love with a recovering addict and stayed. Through our journey of tremendous highs and scary lows I found myself looking for answers online. Searching things like “loving an addict” and “am I enabling”, waiting for the many opinions and thoughts to fill my screen and soon my head. Too often the message was targeted to save yourself and get out. Although this may be the answer for some its not for all of us. Some of us are in, caring for ourselves and standing by our partners all at the same time. It’s not easy but no one can convince me he’s not worth it.
This blog is place to share my thoughts and hopefully spark conversations that provide support for anyone searching for answers or wanting to share their voice. If you take nothing else from this blog know you are not alone. There are so many of us with the same thoughts, worries, celebratory moments, heartaches and breaks and most importantly hope.
