It's great that you found your voice! I appreciate what you are saying here. It makes complete sense that we blame ourselves and feel guilty and ashamed when we hide the secret.
Thanks for the insight and encouragement,
I see recovery as a lifelong journey rather than a final destination, a journey, though, which can have many successes along the way.
