At 56 years old, I had nowhere to go.
I was in a hospital bed, detoxing off of the only friend I had in the world—alcohol—and it had become my worst nightmare. I was a scared, sad woman. So much of my past, I had chosen to forget.
Then I enrolled in a program that saved my life.
I was put in the New Beginnings house with 6 other women. I was immediately on a schedule:
- work therapy
- AA meetings
- medical appointments
- Bible study
- homework, and
- household chores.
I was transported everywhere I went. This was a big adjustment for me. I have been an independent woman.
Now that I have come to the end of this first phase in the program I have a new outlook on life. I have learned and achieved so much in my time here that I never thought possible this late in life.
I plan to utilize all of the tools I have been given. I have a beautiful life ahead of me. I am no longer afraid of facing my past. I am truly amazed at discovering the new Sherri.
