In 1999, I attended 12-step meetings after a drug and alcohol induced seizure. It wasn’t my first time. About ten year earlier, a therapist I was seeing for my eating disorder (bulimia) also suggested I give 2-step meetings a try and I thought she was nuts. Why would she take me to meetings for recovering alcoholics when I was seeing her for an eating disorder?
If it wasn’t for the blonde haired middle aged woman who got up in front of about 50 people to tell her story of recovery, which included drugs, alcohol, bulimia, and co-dependency, I don’t know if I would have had the hope that I could turn my life around. One of my greatest silent fears was that I was sicker than everyone else (had more addictions) and I would never be totally free to enjoy my life.
