About me

Location Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada
Introduction I am a married mother of three who enjoyed a happy, normal life before drugs entered my home and shattered my world as I knew it. Devastated, scared, and having no experience with addiction, I began researching the disease to try to save my son. I learned a lot! When it came to getting help for our son, we were shocked to discover the many gaps in the system, which would add frustration to an already painful situation. Concerned with both the broken system and the level of stigma around addiction, I started this blog where I take the public into the home of a family dealing with addiction; my own. I want to show people that addiction may not look the way they think it does, and that it can happen to any family. I also personalize the struggles individuals face in finding adequate help. For families who are going through it, I want you to know that you are not alone.
Interests Raising awareness about the prescription drug problem in Prince Edward Island, Canada.
