Recovery & Healing


Even though my articles about God and spirituality have everything to do with my recovery (in addition to nearly constant cathartic blogging and writing), I’m not posting them in this section because there may be agnostics or atheists reading this blog. The more religious and spiritual articles have their own subheader which is listed under “My Story” in the header.
