About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Tourism
Location Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Introduction I am the mother of two adult children - one is a beautiful, senstive young man addicted to heroin and the other is a very creative successful independent young woman. I am also the wife of an alcoholic. I have been struggling living in these conditions for years and I am consumed with figuring out how to find peace and not live with shame every day. My life is veiled in lies to hide my truths. I don't know exactly why, probably because I'm still protecting my addicted loved one and probably because I am afraid of judgement. I don't know where this blog will take me, but I hope to connect honestly with the world around me and find that peace I so desperately want.
Interests I am "middle-aged" now and I find that a lot of what interests me right now is finding some peace, doing things and going places that expand my thinking and add value to my life. Sometimes that is just hanging out at home watching PVR, other days it is planning an adventure that I hope to take one day. Hopefully I will be able to add to my interests as I grow my blog...
