I just started using tumblr. I'm from the bay area. I'm in recovery and substance free. My mind can be very hard to deal with and it has been interesting looking through people’s pages borrowing pictures and posting some of my own. I got sober the day after my 19th birthday and I'm now 24. It’s been a roller coaster ride! I started drinking when I was very little but began more regularly when I was 14. My life soon turned into a whirlwind of drugs and alcohol. I had things said and done to me that no one should experience let alone a young girl. I have OCD so my mind is a constant battle zone. I go to Alcoholics Anonymous and have been in continuous therapy. I still have a lot of work to do but I look back on previous years and see how far I have truly come. I try and remain strong but it can be very difficult and lonesome. I can’t believe I’ve been sober for 5 years it’s a miracle!
