Emily’s Story

Today my recovery is far from over, and some days are just about getting through it as safely as possible, but I can 100% say that I have grown more in the past few years than ever before, and these dark times always remind me of my resilience. There’s always light out there, even if it’s far away and barely visible, and sharing my story is just one of the many ways I’ve made that light brighter and am reminded that there’s still hope.
