Slaying Dragons

Let’s get real for a moment guys – this poem has an incredibly important message. When someone is experiencing untreated ptsd, depression, anxiety or any mental illness for a long period of time it can become your new norm. When these things are all you know you start to accept them and see them as a part of you. The behaviours that emerge from mental illnesses can seem like Character defects and failings instead of what they are, symptoms.
Don’t ever stop fighting for wellness.
It’s worth it.

This latest poem dives into the murky waters of disordered eating, poor body image, and the struggle to love ourselves as we are.
I find it even harder to post about my struggle with food, then my struggle with alcohol. I hope my vulnerability speaks to someone who needs to hear they aren’t alone!
There is help and there is hope!


I was brought to tears this morning during my devotion, reflecting on the incredible richness and quality my life now has, now that I am sober and clean. I was overwhelmed with gratitude and it became a poem.


TW ! This is a more graphic piece that I wrote when I was deep in active addiction.

My Transformation
