Where am I?

About Me

I'm the daughter of, ex-wife of & mother of addict-alcoholics. Dad: A jazz musician (they're not known for sobriety). Ex: A drinker, later addicted to Soma. I went to Alanon for 9 years. I went through a lot with my Daughter's Addiction to the "devil's drug", Crystal Meth. Meth brought on voices, hence a mental health diagnosis too. She was in a locked psych hospital for 10 months. Along the way, we threatened dealers, tracked her to other cities & states, & visited her every weekend in the hospital.. She was placed under Conservatorship (meaning unable to provide for her own food, shelter & clothing.) But None of this could have prepared me for her Death 2 wks. shy of her 27th birthday. She was slowly clawing her way back to sanity after 10 months in a psych hospital. Had been going w/ a guy for about a month, when she died. Heroin wasn't her Drug of choice, but that is how she died. I've posted her memorial @ GRASP (Grief Recovery After a Substance Passing) www.  Sept. '14,  Patrizia Monari. Even though she's gone, I hope I can still help others who are struggling.
