I’m just happy to be ok

This is the best way to show how angry I was six years ago, while I was still in the first stages of my recovery and I saw no way out.

Thank God it’s Friday!

Survived week one

It doesn't end! I moved in exactly one week ago, last Friday and I just unpacked the last of my stuff; I think. One week to unpack everything! That's too much.
