What it was like?
It was hell. I came very close to losing everything I had, including my life. I lost my job, my relationships, my family, and almost lost custody of my daughter who was the most important thing in the world to me. I lost my self respect, my ability to look in the mirror, my freedom, my autonomy, and my will to live.
My family had a much-needed intervention and I didn't fight it one bit because I was ready to give up. I was tired and couldn't imagine going on like I was for much longer.
What it is like now?
It's the life I always wanted but never even dared to dream about. I am married with a new baby, I have a wonderful family, have a great job, great friends, a great relationship with my family, and I have a great relationship with the woman I see in the mirror.
