The Unexplained Grief of Miscarriage

The Unexplained Grief of Miscarriage

2019-11-21 09:57:24 TW: Miscarriage Miscarriage. Like my friend Irina says, it’s a weird word and concept. Something we never think will happen to us, even when we get pregnant. Even though the statistics say otherwise. Between 10 and 15 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage, and this doesn’t account for the others that may occur for women who aren’t aware they’re pregnant.  I spent... »

A Retreat Back to Self

A Retreat Back to Self

2019-10-03 13:01:19 When I got sober I felt like everything was a transformative experience. Swimming in the pool, watching flowers bloom in the summer rain, spending time with my loved ones, running outside, my first wedding sober, my first sober travel experience, my first sober everything. It all felt new and raw and real, and pretty amazing.  But then life happened and I grew up. I got so... »

What it's Really Like to Wake Up Without Hangovers

What it's Really Like to Wake Up Without Hangovers

2019-08-19 08:54:49 I’ve met some interesting people in my life. Some of the most interesting are those people who say they don’t get hangovers. It’s still kind of impossible for me to wrap my mind around this concept. I am still doubtful. Really? You drink all night long and don’t feel hungover at all the next day? “I just don’t get hangovers,” they’d say. Insert *mind blow* emoji here. How is th... »

The Magic and Peace of a Dry Town

2019-08-03 14:49:14 Nothing got me more pumped for summer than knowing I’d be spending a week of it down the shore. If you don’t know the phrase “down the shore,” than you probably aren’t from Philadelphia or the tri-state area. Anyone from the suburbs of Philly like me, knows that every summer starting on Memorial Day weekend, everyone heads to the jersey shore. The New Jersey coastline includes ... »

Sobriety as a Career Path

Sobriety as a Career Path

2019-07-17 10:15:00 I think the inherent desire to help others has always been inside me. It’s probably why promoting alcohol and Monster energy drink, selling shoes and vacation packages, and being an administrative assistant were such unsatisfying jobs for me. They didn’t fill me up. I was always discontent with those jobs because I felt like something was missing. I felt like I was meant for mo... »

Punta Cana, We Meet Again

Punta Cana, We Meet Again

2019-07-03 10:49:22 There are many places that stick out clearly in my mind. Maybe it’s because I’ve had so many blackouts and I’ve been unsure of so many things that have happened to me, the part of my brain that still works during some of those times takes a snapshot of what I’m seeing. Although sometimes it doesn’t help, because I now have a lot of images in my brain that don’t make sense. I do... »

2019-06-06 09:04:04 Worry is insidious, often justified and at the same time useless. It can be defined as “to give way to anxiety or unease”. Original Source »
