thealiciacookMy sister sent me this first. I couldn't believe my eyes. Went on their website and confirmed this insane news. Then I'm not going to lie, I cried. One MILLION.
Something I struggle with daily is finding balance with this...reaching milestones I've dreamed of as a writer that are tied so directly to tragedy. How do I celebrate this achievement that's tied to pain? Tied to other people's pain? I don't really, I just keep writing.
Thank you to everyone who reads and shares my work. And one more important thing that's usually the elephant in the room at a time like this: I really, HONEST TO GOD, wish over one million people didn't relate enough to my work on addiction in the first place.
Fuck heroin. Fuck any substance that has taken someone you care about away from you. I'm going to keep fighting this fight because it's worth it, because all we have is each other. If this solidified anything, it's that this is my purpose. #fuckheroin #bloggersofinstagram #writerslife #writersofinstagram #amwriting #newjersey #heroinepidemic #thisisnj #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #soberlife #mentalillness #drugaddiction #breakthestigma
