I started my wellness and recovery journey on April 2nd of 2021 after years of alcoholism, substance abuse, trauma, mental health struggles, and multiple incarceration stays. I finally found the courage to say that enough is enough after a night filled with drinking and arguments. I knew in my heart that something needed to change before I ended up dead or behind bars. I was at a point in my life where I was at my rock bottom. I believed that I deserved all the traumatic events that I once endured. I didn’t think I could live a life of peace and happiness. After losing friends and burning bridges with the ones closest to me, I decided I needed to get myself and my life in order. I never knew how much this decision would change my life. I quit my addiction to alcohol and substances cold turkey, and I knew my next step was to seek help with my mental health. I took a risk on finding a therapist to fit my needs and it felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders, I just wanted to know that I wasn’t alone. Therapy opened a door of opportunity for me showing me a side of life I had never known before involving honesty, openness, and taking accountability for my actions. Before I could work on setting boundaries and mending relationships, I had to first work on myself and create an action plan of who I wanted to become. I was informed about MHA through a young woman that worked there who was also someone that I’ve known since middle school. I was tired of working in factories and holding myself back so I decided to take yet another risk and apply. Not long after, MHA offered me a job as a peer support specialist for the REAL program and I gladly accepted. I never would have imagined that my life would be so fulfilling on becoming a peer with lived experience.
